The System Manager is the foundation and backbone of CareVoyants various modules and functions. To provide an intuitive and familiar work environment, the System Manager emulates the look and feel of Microsoft Office Outlook. System Manager streamlines navigation by enabling easy access to CareVoyant functions, reports and external programs from the home page. System Manager also gives organizations the option to link login permissions to Microsoft Active Directory — in addition to providing features that help develop menu and form security by user role.
System Manager includes a Modifier tool that can be used to customize the data entry screens by hiding or rearranging fields. Additionally, an Import tool allows users to import data into CareVoyant tables. The solution enables users to launch CareVoyant Reports quickly from the Home Page including reports created using Crystal Reports and Microsoft SQL Server Reporting Services
CareVoyant Patient Registration functions enable health care providers to establish a single patient record for multiple lines of business and for multiple episodes of care. CareVoyant’s single patient record gives organizations the ability to consolidate all the clinical and financial records for a patient across the continuum of care. The consolidation of all patient information — including demographic, insurance, diagnosis, clinical and billing — that is collected at registration and throughout the length of care eliminates redundant data entry as the patient moves through the continuum of care.

Once in the system, these documents can be categorized, stored, retrieved and distributed, thereby saving office space, increasing staff productivity, reducing retrieval time and improving patient services. In conjunction with CareVoyant clinical module, CareVoyant Document Imaging and Management Module enables outpatient practices to drastically reduce paper documentation — by scanning original paper documents and attaching them, along with other electronic files, directly to the patient record.
For offices with thousands of documents, using a document management program to organize, index and access their documents is an absolute necessity. An effective patient records management system can produce immediate improvements in time savings, profitability and staff productivity.
