Every hospital that implements the QuadraMed Quantim product suite tailors its use of the software to meet unique needs, policies and processes. One of the most interesting is Jamaica Hospital Medical Center (JHMC) in Queens, New York.
Jamaica Hospital is a fully accredited community teaching facility with a large network of ambulatory care centers, and serves the borough of Queens and a portion of Brooklyn. JHMC is a Level I Trauma and Stroke Center. The coding system is decentralized with coder offices located on Long Island and in Queens, New York.
In 2007, the hospital prepared to install QuadraMed Quantim Inpatient/Outpatient Coding and Compliance, which was fully implemented in 2008. As a member of the Healthcare Association of New York State (HANYS), Quantim was acquired through the organization’s subsidiary, HANYS Solutions, which also provides support for all Quantim applications in New York. Working with HANYS Solutions, QuadraMed has enhanced Quantim by integrating the HANYS Solutions-developed UIS Data System™ (UDS) that provides, among its capabilities, a custom abstracting solution.
