Itasca, IL (PRWEB) October 19, 2010
APP Design, a software development firm specializing in the design, development and integration of healthcare systems, today announced its selection to deliver Provider Demographic Update (PDU), a Web-based application designed to expertly manage demographic data and reduce the amount of manual intervention required in a provider portal by both providers and payers.
The PDU will offer a direct method of reviewing and entering demographic data on file with all payers in the region through a provider portal with automated field-level validation along with the ability to attach supporting files. In addition to improving user and payer experience, PDU validates provider updates before submission for correct formatting and provides flexibility by allowing payers to configure field properties to meet their system requirements. For providers, the application offers a simple, accessible interface to view and update demographic information for each payer relationship.
“Implementing the Provider Demographic Update will significantly improve the integrity of the data within our core billing system as well as continue to transform the manner in which our provider customers do business with us," commented Christopher Durand, Business Analyst with BlueCross BlueShield of Western New York, which selected APP Design. “Plus, it maintains continuity and security amongst the several other applications that APP Design has successfully developed on our behalf.”
The PDU eliminates the need for the provider office to call or fax demographic data to payers, a typically time-consuming process. Therefore, there is little to no delay in applying specific updates to important data.
"This application not only provides a time savings for both the payer and provider but also allows a provider to remotely use the Web-based pages to update information and monitor various changes," remarked Robert Quinn, Partner of APP Design. "Updates made by a provider can be saved as a draft before being submitted to the payer system, and they can monitor their demographic updates in that draft status prior to submission."
