MedAptus' Charge Capture Technology Deployed at Leading Manhattan Cardiovascular Practice

Physicians Readily Adopt Time-Saving Tool in Outpatient, Inpatient Settings

BOSTON, May 7 /PRNewswire/ -- MedAptus(R), market leader for charge capture technologies, today announced that the distinguished Lenox Hill Interventional Cardiac & Vascular Services, PC (LHICVS) is the latest cardiology group to implement Professional Intelligent Charge Capture.

Nearly 40 clinical and interventional cardiologists at LHICVS, one of the most highly respected cardiovascular care programs in the nation, are currently using MedAptus' Practice Plus Edition on both cellular PDAs and web-enabled workstations. The MedAptus software is utilized for the capture of outpatient charges at the group's main office as well as nearby regional offices, and inpatient charges at Lenox Hill Hospital, recently ranked among the nation's top hospitals in heart and heart surgery by U.S. News and World Report.

Practice Plus Edition is a powerful, yet easy-to-use, physician-oriented application proven to mitigate revenue loss, compliance overhead and lack of billing process transparency. The solution has experienced high demand from cardiology practices given that most groups are comprised of multiple sub-specialists with unique coding requirements, full patient loads and multiple settings of care.

"Prior to implementing MedAptus, we relied on paper encounter forms to support our coding and billing processes, as well as outsourced support. It was clear that our workflow involved too many steps and was prone to error given its manual nature and number of handoffs. We sought MedAptus' software to streamline our approach, improve coding appropriateness and ultimately enhance our revenue cycle," said Dana Meltzer, director of Lenox Hill Interventional Cardiac & Vascular Services, PC. "We have been very pleased with MedAptus as a technology provider. They offer a strong customer-orientation, responsive support and a powerful system that can readily adapt to user needs."

LHICVS first went live with MedAptus in late 2008 after undertaking a competitive vendor review process. Customer feedback has been quite positive - as one example, charges are now submitted to the MedicsElite billing system more rapidly and accurately than ever before. In addition, MedAptus has helped the group improve consistency of inpatient charge capture, a process that can be problematic without an electronic reconciliation tool such as MedAptus' RCA Engine, a component of Professional Intelligent Charge Capture.

"LHICVS is not only a prestigious cardiovascular practice, they also are quite savvy about information technology and enthusiastic about MedAptus. As such, they have been a joy to work with," said Rick Little, executive director of client services at MedAptus. "We fully expect LHICVS will experience significant benefit from the adoption of our tool, currently experiencing increased interest from cardiology groups. Given the amount of money that could potentially be left on the table resulting from lost charges and coding denials, particularly in the face of a challenging economy, it has never been more important to 'get it right' the first time."
