Williamsville, NY, United States, 2008/04/18 - BLIS Insurance Company has selected Info-Surge to help its physicians better communicate with patients, increase patient satisfaction and reduce risk - BlisCompany.com.
Providing coverage to select Bariatric Center of Excellence providers, BLIS Insurance Company offers security to participating surgeons and self-pay bariatric surgery patients. Since the type of coverage BLIS provides is new to this industry, education of surgeons and patients about these products is critical to success.
An important part of surgical program’s success with BLIS is patient preparation. Since no two policies will be alike, patients must thoroughly understand and acknowledge the stipulations of coverage. With Info-Surge, participation and comprehension of the course material is tracked with quizzes and activity reports.
BLIS has found that by integrating Info-Surge’s sophisticated web-based e-learning system into their services, consistent, comprehensive information about its products is delivered to patients who are about to undergo Bariatric surgery. By use of 3D images, animations and patient friendly narrations in a multi-media format, physicians are better able to manage patient expectations and reduce their risk of frivolous lawsuits. Surgeons and patients can access information whenever and as often as they choose through their unique password protected access codes.
Regi Schindler, President and CEO of BLIS chose to work with Info-Surge because it is an all inclusive e-learning management system that provides the flexibility to customize courses for each of his clients “We continue to be excited about using Info-Surge because it is consistent with our desire to provide the best tools possible for the physicians and patients that we insure.” Mr. Schindler went on to say “Educating patients with products like Info-Surge’s online patient education system is the wave of the future. It saves time, improves risk management, and has unrestricted applications in health care.”
