OrionNet Systems Wants Agencies to Work Smarter, Not Harder - 10/23/2015

OrionNet Systems has stated that they will be creating additional reports for their practice management software, ThinkHealth, before the end of the year in an attempt to help their agencies work smarter, not harder.


“With impending budget cuts from the state coming in January there can be no delay when considering how best to help our clients save time and money,” said Clyde Wafford, president of OrionNet Systems.


Oklahoma's budget and executive cabinet leadership has been meeting with state agency officials concerning the state fiscal year 2017 budget outlook. Leadership has advised that the budget outlook is grim. Agencies were requested to not submit any budget increases and to plan for potentially significant reductions.


The Oklahoma Health Care Authority (OHCA) may consider rate reductions for all SoonerCare providers as early as January 1, 2016. More detail will be provided in November during the formal public notification process, and no final decision will be made before the OHCA board meets on December 10.


The state has stated that in order to maintain federal funding for the program, they are limited with regard to the budget areas that can be cut. The majority of any budget reductions will be borne on the provider reimbursement fee schedule.


It is for this very reason that OrionNet Systems has plans to create additional reports that will help their agencies manage their practice more efficiently.


One of the aforementioned reports is the Agency Statistics Report. This report will enable agencies to keep better track of their numbers, such as the number of hours they are spending on each service.


“We want to make sure that our clients know exactly where their money is going so they can see more clients and give better services,” said Clyde Wafford.
