Proof-of-Concept Established, Widespread Roll-Out to Specialty Providers Underway
BOSTON, May 19 /PRNewswire/ -- MedAptus(R), market leader for charge capture technologies, today announced that The Dartmouth-Hitchcock Clinic will be broadening its deployment of the MedAptus Professional offering, Practice Plus Edition. The solution will be rolled out to 150 specialty providers with practices in southern New Hampshire, with an option for future expansion to all physicians across the sizeable Dartmouth-Hitchcock system.
Internationally renowned, nationally ranked and regionally respected, Dartmouth-Hitchcock Medical Center (DHMC) is New Hampshire's only academic medical center. More than 900 primary and specialty care physicians located throughout the state, as well as Vermont, are affiliated with The Dartmouth-Hitchcock Clinic (DHC).
MedAptus' Practice Plus Edition is a powerful, yet easy-to-use, solution proven to mitigate potential professional revenue loss, compliance overhead and lack of billing process transparency. The technology, highly scaleable for larger groups with a wide spectrum of user workflows, is becoming increasingly vital to academic medical setting operations given its ability to rapidly yield financial benefit.
DHC first engaged with MedAptus in 2007 for a pilot of Professional Intelligent Charge Capture. Providers practicing in gastroenterology, neurology, pediatrics and internal medicine adopted both the mobile and web-enabled versions of Practice Plus Edition to support point-of-care coding of office encounters. Shortly after go-live, a subset of providers started to utilize MedAptus in the inpatient setting, to assist in the capture of hospital services often missed.
With positive feedback from pilot users and demonstrable system results, DHC decided to extend charge capture automation to additional providers across its southern region clinics. As part of the due diligence process, DHC incorporated other vendor offerings into a methodical review process.
"Our choice of MedAptus for the expanded charge capture roll-out was based on our experience of excellent customer service around project management, integration and support, as well as powerful technology that our providers have embraced," said Mary Kay Boudewyns, vice president for revenue management at Dartmouth-Hitchcock Medical Center. "Given the positive impact of MedAptus based on only a subset of our clinicians, we expect the next phases of deployment -- adding more specialists, incorporating additional hospital interfaces and finally, roll-out across the primary care providers -- to yield significant benefits, further optimizing our revenue cycle."
"MedAptus is obviously thrilled to continue working with a world-class organization like Dartmouth-Hitchcock. Their decision to review competitive systems to ensure providers were utilizing the most robust, feature-rich charge capture technology available is one we fully supported. MedAptus is -- and has always been -- singularly focused on developing the industry's best revenue cycle management software. So between a proven technology, and our passion for service, we were confident that our relationship with the prestigious organization would be a long one," said William Marshall, senior vice president of sales and marketing at MedAptus.
MedAptus is the Gold Standard in the healthcare revenue cycle for effective charge management, compliance and workflow efficiency. With the most powerful, yet easy-to-use, Intelligent Charge Capture technologies available, we enjoy enterprise-wide adoption at some of the nation's most prestigious healthcare organizations. Our portfolio of full-scale Professional and Facility offerings is practice-proven to increase revenue, re-engineer archaic processes, enhance EMR investments and save busy providers valuable time.
