Better documentation & new revenue

For Mark Weissman, MD of GMS, adopting assessURhealth™ brought much needed documentation and time-saving benefits to his team in addition to new revenue.

One of the few clinicians already incorporating mental health screenings into his practice, assessURhealth has contributed to better workflows and processes for Dr. Weissman’s team.

“It makes it a lot easier to make sure surveys get done correctly, are documented properly, and billed properly,” Dr. Weissman said of the tool, “it’s much easier to facilitate screenings being done, before we even walk in the room.”

The tool has made it easier to collect revenue from preventive screenings as well. For just two billing providers, assessURhealth added over $50,000 in five short months to Dr. Weissman’s bottom line.

With an intuitive interface, it was easy to start using assessURhealth immediately and Dr. Weissman’s staff were quick to pick up the process. “It’s just a matter of adding it to your normal workflow,” he noted.

For Weissman, the extensive screenings offered have improved the data he was already collecting. “Two big pieces we didn’t get before were the opioid risk and the anxiety side,” Dr. Weissman said, using the tool to give him a clearer picture of patient’s needs.

The instant scoring of patients’ results made a major impact as well. “It’s very nice, because [the results] get there immediately,” Dr. Weissman said. The proprietary scoring algorithm took the guess work out of health risk analysis, providing a color-coded summary to ask follow up questions from.

Since he began using assessURhealth last September, Dr. Weissman has promoted adoption of the tool to 14 other GMS practice locations, together completing several thousand assessments and impacting patient lives.

GMS is a 50-provider Primary Care group with over 300 staff across Tampa Bay.
