PatientKeeper will significantly improve coding accuracy and charge documentation, which is critical to expediting billing and payment through Medicare and all of our other governmental and private payers.
Waltham, MA (PRWEB) February 07, 2012
PatientKeeper® Inc., the leading provider of physician healthcare information systems, today announced that Southern California Hospitalist Network of Anaheim, CA, has purchased PatientKeeper Charge Capture™ software to improve revenue cycle management and streamline professional fee charge capture among its network of physicians working under contract at area hospitals.
Southern California Hospitalist Network has years of experience as the largest hospitalist network in Southern California, currently providing services to over 750,000 managed care lives under contract at 60 hospitals, more than 15 medical groups, and several major health plans.
PatientKeeper Charge Capture dramatically reduces lost charges and lag days by eliminating inefficiencies associated with paper-based charge systems. The system allows physicians to record charges on whatever device they prefer, including desktop and laptop computers, popular smartphones, and tablets.
Southern California Hospitalist Network plans to roll out PatientKeeper Charge Capture to its more than 150 physicians. PatientKeeper will be integrated with Southern California Hospitalist Networks’ QSI billing application and hospital-based MEDITECH registration systems.
“Our physicians are looking forward to being able to enter charges with PatientKeeper on their mobile devices or on desktops in real time as they are rounding,” said Evan Jacobson, chief financial officer at Southern California Hospitalist Network. “PatientKeeper will significantly improve coding accuracy and charge documentation, which is critical to expediting billing and payment through Medicare and all of our other governmental and private payers.”
“The well documented financial pressures on healthcare providers, along with the impending transition to ICD-10, is creating a surge in demand for more effective and efficient professional fee capture systems for physicians,” said PatientKeeper president and CEO Paul Brient. “PatientKeeper, with its long history and deep expertise in this area, is the leading provider of electronic charge capture solutions to hospitals, physicians organizations and hospitalist contractors, in California and nationwide.”
