Reno, NV (PRWEB) May 03, 2011
DoctorsXL, the leader in nephrology medical practice management, announces that MobileXL 3.0, web-based software that enables physicians to electronically capture charges and treatment plans during out-of-office patient rounding, is now patent pending. A patent application was submitted and accepted for MobileXL, which integrates Case Mix Adjustment (CMA) functionality with new reporting and reimbursement regulations for dialysis patient care from the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services.
DoctorsXL’s first-to-market CMA charge capture functionality was developed to ensure that Nephrologists capture and earn all available CMA reimbursement fees while caring for both the chronic and acute conditions of end-stage kidney disease patients during out-of-office visits. Unlike traditional paper-based methods, which require substantial staff time and are prone to error and loss, MobileXL’s electronic system increases physician revenue by making it fast and simple to capture charges and code correctly while visiting with patients—in real time. MobileXL is accessible via the Internet from any web-based device, thus eliminating the need to install, manage, or maintain software or applications.
“By 2012, more than 80% of physicians are expected to use smart devices, such as smartphones and tablets, to access clinical information and perform administrative tasks,” explained Lori LeBlanc, founder and CEO of DoctorsXL. “MobileXL represents the first solution to bridge the new governmental regulatory requirements with the adoption of smart devices used for rounding charge management by nephrologists.”
Through its billing, coding, credentialing and consultancy with medical practices across the country, DoctorsXL discovered that one of the most common issues facing physicians is the difficulty of capturing charges and follow up care management when visiting patients during rounds. Not only were physicians experiencing poor data integrity, but they were also reporting a loss in revenue during out-of-office patient visits. MobileXL alleviates this issue by automatically sending patient data and fee information to the physician’s billing service provider in real time via any web-enabled device, including a smartphone, tablet or laptop.
“We estimate that on average, physicians can increase their hospital rounding revenue by 10% through the use of MobileXL,” said LeBlanc. “By documenting patient encounters at the point-of-care from a wireless device, physicians can ensure every charge is captured and lost charges become a thing of the past.”
MobileXL is offered exclusively through DoctorsXL. The HIPAA-compliant system features pre-populated ICD-9 and CPT codes, tracks type of visit, synchronizes with all billing solutions and includes valuable reporting tools. MobileXL, like other DoctorsXL services, utilizes encrypted communication to remotely hosted servers that also serve as data back-up.
