Enhanced billing and coding architecture allows laboratories to meet new regulatory guidelines and improve their revenue streams, today and in the future.

PathView Systems Progeny APLIS

"Our recent update addressed the needs of laboratories with both sophisticated and less sophisticated billing systems"

It seems like a yearly right of passage that CMS and other governmental organizations change or create new charging and coding rules for laboratories to comply with. PathView Systems, with it's latest release of the Progeny APLIS, addresses these issues via the implementation of a rule based architecture and by providing for the data interface of discrete billing information heretofore not available via most systems.

"Ramifications from the Affordable Care Act have laboratories facing multiple new revenue hurdles," according to Michael Mihalik, vice president of PathView Systems. "On the one hand, laboratories may have sophisticated billing systems which can more suitably handle the vagaries of billing, but those systems are not receiving the minute billing details required to accurately bill. On the other hand, some laboratories have less sophisticated systems and they require their LIS to accurately charge according to a myriad of changing billing scenarios. Our recent update addresses both these needs."

Workflow solutions and simplicity of use are core building blocks of Progeny. "Billing rules can be complex and even tedious. It's the job of the LIS to portray billing information in a simple and easy to understand presentation. Obviously, revenue streams are important, but they must remain secondary to patient care," Michael added.
