Atlanta and Tampa, Fla. (PRWEB) September 11, 2008
LoCicero Medical Group, a provider of medical services in the Tampa Bay area, announced today the addition of two Clearwave kiosks to support the process of merging its three practices. Clearwave, a health care technology company specializing in streamlining administrative processes, allows LoCicero to manage its front desk and financial operations more efficiently.
"As our practice expands, Clearwave is an important component of making our patient flow work better for new and existing patients. The addition of the two kiosks will help to normalize the process for each of our locations," said Nick Galantino, office administrator of LoCicero Medical Group. "Because Clearwave also improves the collection of patient information, The Medical Management One side of our practice has been able to cultivate its billing operations to provide better services to our clients."
LoCicero Medical Group first deployed the Clearwave kiosks in January 2007. With LoCicero Medical, South Tampa Medical Group and Pinnacle Medical Group now in the same building, it has grown from two to four kiosks. All of LoCicero's patients are checking in and verifying their eligibility at the kiosks.
"The architecture of the Clearwave system allows our clients to easily expand their practices because we can seamlessly integrate each of their offices under one network," said Gerard White, CEO of Clearwave. "LoCicero Medical Group now has the ability to manage three offices and its diagnostic center via one check in and eligibility system, so it can grow the business and patient sides of its practice."
Clearwave simplifies healthcare administration for patients, providers, payors and employers with its unique combination of technology and industry expertise. Using Web-based kiosks as a starting point, Clearwave's patent-pending network is able to efficiently exchange patient, insurance, payment and other healthcare-related information in a HIPAA-compliant and secure manner, reducing administrative costs, time and errors.
