MedAptus Customers Capitalizing on P4P Incentives via Intelligent Charge Capture
Date:7/14/2009

BOSTON, July 14 /PRNewswire/ -- MedAptus(R), market leader for charge capture technologies, today announced enthusiastic adoption of its P4P component across the company's Professional Intelligent Charge Capture user-base. MedAptus P4P is widely used for capture of quality measure data for the Physician Quality Reporting Initiative (PQRI) program, as well as localized payer efforts.

MedAptus' powerful, yet easy-to-use, technologies are practice-proven to maximize revenue, enhance compliance efforts and increase billing process transparency. In addition to both mobile and desktop-based solutions for physician professional charge capture, the company also offers the industry's only automation for the capture and management of outpatient facility charges as well as a dedicated infusion charge capture product enjoying tremendous success at top-ranked cancer centers.

MedAptus P4P is embedded within all of the various software editions that belong to the company's Professional Intelligent Charge Capture solution suite, eliminating the need for creation of separate processes for data collection. The MedAptus approach utilizes real-time alerts to prompt clinician-users to document required data elements. Only common clinical terms are presented to the user, for measures specific to his or her specialty, saving valuable time -- which customers such as Hawthorn Medical Associates truly appreciate.

"Our physicians really enjoy being able to utilize MedAptus to document their PQRI measures -- having data collection embedded into practice workflow means time-strapped providers don't have to think about whether or not an encounter is eligible for incentive. Clearly, commercial contracts are headed towards more pay-for-performance requirements, so being able to orient our doctors now, especially with such an intuitive tool, will only benefit them more in the future," said Matthew Nivison, director of administrative services at Hawthorn Medical Associates.

Dartmouth, Massachusetts-based Hawthorn Medical, a large multi-specialty practice and affiliate of Partners Community Healthcare, Inc. and Partners HealthCare System, first adopted MedAptus' Practice Plus Edition for web-based charge capture in 2006. Beyond reaping efficiency benefits stemming from P4P, the group's clinician-users also enjoy seamless system integration between MedAptus and their electronic records system, the Partners HealthCare Longitudinal Medical Record (LMR). A single sign-on and preserved patient context allow providers to complete charging and charting tasks expeditiously.

"As a practicing physician, I experience the ever-increasing administrative and regulatory challenges firsthand so I know how crucial it is to be armed with time-neutral tools that fit within clinical workflow. We designed our P4P module to make it simple for our users to capitalize on available incentive programs -- yet one more way that MedAptus drives financial benefit," noted David Delaney, MD, MedAptus' chief medical officer. "Payers are rapidly moving toward basing at least a part of payment on performance. While that is the right strategy, differing sets of metrics and measures can make it difficult for provider groups to operationalize participation. This is precisely why MedAptus P4P epitomizes leveraging technology: to manage and simplify complexity behind the scenes, letting doctors maintain focus on providing quality care."
