Efficiency is critical to healthcare and that is why we put our disability services in the cloud. Eliminating the need for paper forms makes our communication process easier and it’s better for the environment.
Ann Arbor, MI (PRWEB) March 12, 2013
UNIVAL, an industry leader in IME, FCE, medical record review and other disability services announces their disability services are now integrated into a new Online Services Portal and moved to the cloud. In a move designed to better serve customers, the new system will give authorized case managers, healthcare providers and others the ability to communicate securely with UNIVAL’s corporate office, while eliminating the need for paper.
UNIVAL’s Online Services Portal improves on its disability services by using the cloud to offer an environmentally-friendly industry advance. Case managers and providers will still send and receive secure medical information about the status of a customer’s disability claim, but now they will be able do so while saving the environment. UNIVAL’s disability services were moved to the cloud to streamline the disability process and eliminate the need for case managers and providers to print off dozens of sheets of medical information.
Because the healthcare industry is focused on increasing efficiency, and cost savings while lowering environmental impact, it made sense for UNIVAL to adjust their product positioning to reflect the demands of the market. Hosting their disability services in the cloud will also give case managers and providers 24/7 access to the documents they need.
The Online Services Portal represents the leading edge of communication for providers and case managers looking to receive a disability determination in the fastest manner possible. UNIVAL’s portal makes it easy for authorized users to upload-download medical documents and receive initial determinations as they are available in real time.
“By putting our disability services in the cloud we’ve made it easier and more efficient for our customers to communicate with us about the status of a claimant’s case,” said Michael Gallagher, president of UNIVAL. “Efficiency is critical to healthcare and that is why we put our disability services in the cloud. Eliminating the need for paper forms makes our communication process easier and it’s better for the environment.”
The cloud-based disability services can be used by providers, case managers, and employers. UNIVAL’s cloud-based disability services are available as a part of any disability service or product the company offers. UNIVAL’s cloud-based disability services also include training and help desk support. A provider or case manager can sign up and begin using the system to send disability referrals within minutes.
“Our cloud-based disability services are a way for us to offer better services to customers in our market segment,” said Gallagher. “We want to make doing business with us a pleasurable experience. We’ve done that by creating an online system that makes it easy to access secure medical information. Eliminating stacks of paper also helps.”
