The countdown is on for the opening of the AANA 2019 Annual Congress Exhibit Hall. It’s going to be crazy–you may even have a hard time planning which vendors to go see and when. But the wise, experienced CRNA knows to prioritize Booth #1109. That’s the Graphium Health booth.

Not one of those CRNAs yet? No problem. Here are the top 10 reasons to visit us so that you can be in with the cool crowd.

#10: Everything MACRA & MIPS

Graphium Health knows MACRA for anesthesia. It’s incredible complicated and always changing, but the good news is that you don’t have to worry about it. We have several ways for you to report the essential measures & get compliant.

For your practice, this means avoiding penalties and getting your hands on some sweet reward money from the CMS QPP program.

Use Graphium’s MACRA Calculator to see what financial impact compliance/non-compliance could have on your practice.

Is this your reason?

#9: Wine & Cheese Access

You have two things to check out.

The first is the schedule of events for AANA 2019. Click your way to the Evening of Sunday, August 11th from 3:15-6:00pm. You’ll find this little beauty:

That’s right. Your two favorite things being served up all in one place. The only thing you need now is a sweet corner booth to lay low in. It’s your best bet when it comes to the mysterious roulette of where the gruyere will be set up.

Well here’s the secret to possibly getting your hands on the first cheddar of the night: Graphium will be in that corner booth that you’ve been dreaming of. Come hang out and improve your odds of beating Brenda the Cheese Snatcher to the table this year.

You can check out the floor plan right now! Search for Graphium Health or, if you’re in for some fun, just try to find Booth 1109 without searching at all!

So are you excited about the  wine & cheese?
Will you share your cheese or… provolone?
Will the cheese leave you Ädelost for words?
Will you try a pinot noir or… hail a Cab?
Instead of joking about cheeses, would you rather just Edam?

We want to make your Wine & Cheese dreams come true at the AANA 2019 Annual Congress.

#8: Data & Analytics

Graphium’s anesthesia dashboard delivers actionable anesthesia data that improve outcomes and your bottom line by enabling data-driven decisions. At Booth 1109, you’ll be able to witness its key characteristics:

For analytics to be most valuable, they need to be available in near real time as possible. Receiving a voluminous report 12 months after the fact cripples the improvement process

Granularity matters. In order to improve the surgical patient experience, individual provider behavior needs to change. Comparing peers at the same Facility is paramount.

Centrally controlled reports which require an IT analyst’s expertise to generate reports hinders the improvement process. Reports need to be readily available to responsible management.

Improvement never ends, and neither should the reports. Well designed analytics should also enable continuous evaluation to track the progress of any corrective actions taken.

#7: Anesthesia Dad Jokes & Chicago Hot Dog Expertise

You: “Hey- could you guys make me a customized anesthesia record?”

Us: “POOF! You’re a customized anesthesia record!”

Seriously, though, you’ll need some levity between some of your sessions, and there won’t be a better place than the Graphium Health Booth — #1109.

We’ll also have with us the famous John Lutes- renowned Chicagoan and Chicago Hot Dog subject matter expert. He can guide you through exactly what a Chicago hot dog is, what makes it the best, and he will probably try to convince you that it’s the only way to live. 

And speaking of breaks between sessions, are you aware of the Chicago Hot Dog Fest that’s going on DURING AANA 2019?? We have the details for you here: Chicago Hot Dog Festival | AANA 2019

#6: Revenue Cycle Management

Graphium is always on the lookout for ways not only to improve the user experience, but also to offer new ways of recording and transmitting data to reduce your workflow. And if we can, we like to find ways to get you paid more accurately and more quickly.

Many of our clients benefit from our automated charge capture slip. Do you currently fill out a form separate from your anesthesia record that needs to be sent (along with the record itself) to your billing company? With Graphium, you can keep your current billing company, and we will both auto-generate your billing slip and send everything necessary directly to your billing company in a secure & HIPAA compliant way. No more couriers or illegible carbon copies, saving you time, money, and the loss of charges due to any number of errors.

Are you having issues with your current billing company?

Graphium Health can handle all of your Revenue Cycle Management. We do it all, from claims to collections to provider credentialing.

Price? We’re pretty sure we can match or beat your current billing rate, and we include your MACRA Reporting & our full Anesthesia EMR for your entire organizaiton.

Get a sneak peek before the show right here, and then come visit us at booth #1109!

#5: Spot the Crazy Socks

David, the head of marketing at Graphium Health is a good dresser. Not too fancy or anything–but dresses appropriately for the occasion.

But if you look just a little bit closer, you might see something just a little out of place: his socks. David is known for his collection of crazy socks, and you have your chance to witness the greatness with us at Booth #1109. Will it be Taco Socks? Polka Dots? Fish? Mustaches?? You never know.

But one thing you can count on for sure: they will be there, and they will be crazy. Here’s a little something from his collection:

Is this your reason?

#4: The Best Electronic Medical Record in History

In. History.

That may not be a super high bar to set, considering that a lot of the technology in the medical space is clunky, outdated, and cumbersome. For anesthesia providers, though, that time has passed. A company has finally created an EMR that reduces clicks and paperwork.

For your practice, this means avoiding penalties and getting your hands on some sweet reward money from the CMS QPP program.
