LOS ANGELES, Oct. 28 /PRNewswire/ -- IMPAC Medical Systems, Inc., an Elekta company, and global leader in oncology information technology solutions, and Revenue Cycle Inc., a comprehensive business-side evaluation, analysis and solutions provider for the oncology market, today announced an agreement under which Revenue Cycle Inc. will offer IMPAC customers oncology specific reimbursement, billing, and coding consulting, as well as auditing and on-site training services. The announcement was made at the 49th Annual Meeting of The American Society for Therapeutic Radiology and Oncology (ASTRO), held October 28 -- November 1 at the Los Angeles Convention Center.
"Medical and radiation oncology involve complex and sophisticated treatments, leading to a complex and challenging reimbursement model," says Robert Hubbell, director of Business Development for IMPAC. "Revenue Cycle Inc. provides our customers with the expertise necessary to interpret and comply with ever-changing regulations and procedures, and assists with the practical application of these procedures. The Center for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS), for instance, issues new or updated regulations on a regular basis. Revenue Cycle Inc. will help interpret that information for IMPAC customers via on-site training, publications, seminars, and Webinars."
Revenue Cycle Inc. will incorporate its knowledge of MOSAIQ(TM) software into its services for IMPAC customers. "Many of our customers underestimate the economic benefits of using MOSAIQ to its full extent, as far as EMR, scheduling and billing features," says David Nikolai, Business Marketing Manager for IMPAC. One of the goals of this agreement is to help customers optimize their use of the MOSAIQ system by overlaying Revenue Cycle Inc.'s coding and reimbursement expertise with the use of MOSAIQ. By doing this, we enable our users to dramatically improve their reimbursement rates and maximize their return on invested capital. They'll get even more out of their MOSAIQ system when it's combined with Revenue Cycle Inc.'s services."
Located in Austin, Texas (USA), Revenue Cycle Inc. is a nationally recognized consulting firm delivering comprehensive business-side evaluation, analysis and solutions for oncology. Its affiliate company RC Billing is an industry-leading full-spectrum billing resource specializing in radiation and medical oncology. Revenue Cycle Inc. was founded in 2002 to provide oncology and healthcare professionals, practice groups, and hospitals with expert solutions regarding business, financial, and management support, and strategic planning. "We're very excited about working with IMPAC to help their customers successfully address reimbursement related issues, thereby improving efficiency and financial outcomes," says Sally Eggleston, director of Business Development for Revenue Cycle Inc.
