Medistreams automates the payment posting process, so our payment posting staff are free to work denials and correspondence to obtain further reimbursement from third party payers instead of spending time posting payments that have already been received.

MediStreams, a Healthcare Revenue Cycle Management company is pleased to welcome Emedex as a new client. Emedex is an accounts receivable management company that provides coding, billing and A/R management services to Emergency Medicine, Radiology and Ambulance providers in Washington, California and Hawaii. Established in 1988, their strengths are in commitment to technology and reporting.

Emedex recently deployed the MediStreams solution, utilizing the service to convert paper Explanation of Benefits (EOB) forms to posting EDI 835 files. MediStreams already had a working relationship with Emedex's practice management software vendor and came recommended by others who had used the product.

Ginger Ryder, President of Emedex said, "We had a desire to automate processes like payment posting, so that staff could be better utilized for higher payment related functions. The implementation has gone extremely smoothly. MediStreams staff visited our offices and met with payment posting and operational management staff to discuss in detail how the process worked.

Test files were submitted and about 90-95% of our payment files posted smoothly with no intervention. Other tweaks and business rules have been established for more challenging third party payers, but all in all, the process has gone so smoothly it has not been disruptive to our staff at all."
