MedAptus Selected by Kentucky Medical Services Foundation for Professional Charge Capture Technology
Date:2/20/2008

Company's Practice-Proven Solution Unanimously Selected to Replace Existing

Vendor System

BOSTON, Feb. 20 /PRNewswire/ -- MedAptus(R), the leading provider of point-of-care charge capture technologies, today announced that Kentucky Medical Services Foundation (KMSF) has selected the MedAptus Professional Charge Capture solution for its clinician base of more than 600 providers.

MedAptus' Professional Charge Capture supports compliant and streamlined coding at the point-of-care. The solution is seamlessly integrated with numerous scheduling, billing, registration and electronic medical records systems and can be deployed via handheld devices, cell phone PDAs, Tablet PCs and workstations. The system has processed millions of charges since its first-generation release in 2001 and has been repeatedly demonstrated to drive rapid and significant revenue increases.

KMSF is the faculty practice plan for the highly regarded University of Kentucky Medical Center and the College of Medicine. In this role the organization provides billing and other administrative services to the multitude of affiliated providers who deliver care across over 80 clinical areas. While KMSF initially adopted mobile charge capture several years ago, the group recently decided that its incumbent solution would no longer meet the needs of its IT strategic initiatives. These concerns led KMSF to assess the vendor and solution market via a formal RFP process and thorough reference checks.

Upon concluding a very methodical landscape review, KMSF chose MedAptus' Professional Charge Capture. The decision, unanimous across the multi-disciplinary steering committee, was largely based on MedAptus' track record of successful implementations and widespread clinician adoption at academic institutions such as Lahey Clinic Medical Center and The University of Texas M. D. Anderson Cancer Center. Members of the KMSF committee witnessed usage of the solution firsthand, as well as received feedback and insight from users, during site visits to both centers.

"Given our years of experience with mobile charge capture technology, we knew exactly what we wanted from a new vendor and system. In addition to the features and functions that would drive adoption and ease billing workflow, it was equally critical that the chosen vendor demonstrate dependability," said Kentucky Medical Services Foundation's Executive Director, Darrell Griffith. "Our interactions with MedAptus clients confirmed our instinct about the company as a stable, customer-oriented provider."

"We are thrilled that our Professional Charge Capture solution was chosen as a replacement system and are wholly confident that we will deliver KMSF the demonstrable revenue results we are so known for," stated Carlos Escobar, vice president of sales at MedAptus. "We applaud KMSF for their incredibly thorough system review and selection process and feel privileged to install our solution in such an acclaimed academic setting."

The MedAptus implementation is fully underway at KMSF; first users of the system were live as of January.
