BERKELEY HEIGHTS, N.J., Aug. 3 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- Authentidate Holding Corp. (Nasdaq: ADAT), a worldwide provider of secure Health Information Exchange and workflow management services, today announced that Medical Services of America, Inc., a leading provider of home healthcare services and medical equipment, headquartered in Lexington South Carolina, will implement Authentidate's Inscrybe(TM) Healthcare web-based service to streamline completion of healthcare referral orders and other healthcare documentation by physicians.
"When operating in the full range of healthcare businesses that Medical Services of America addresses, healthcare referrals and medical order approvals can be quite a complex and extended process. The Inscrybe standardized process gives Medical Services of America consistent standardized physician customer service options and flexibility as well as simplifying physician communications," said Donna Camit, Vice President at Medical Services of America. "Inscrybe also allows us several options to transition to more efficient paperless communications and interface with our more sophisticated physician practice EMR (Electronic Medical Record) systems."
Inscrybe Healthcare facilitates information exchange with referring physicians for all types of healthcare transactions, including Plan of Care, Certificates of Medical Necessity, Prior Authorizations, Written Orders and other care documents required for the authorization of therapy and care services, or medical equipment and supplies for patients. The web-based service automates manual workflow processes and efficiently tracks the status of those communications, reducing the approval cycle time from referring physicians. The streamlined workflows improve the efficiency of clinical and administrative processes, reducing costs while reinforcing best practices.
Inscrybe Healthcare can also interface with billing and clinical EMR systems to further reduce errors and costs of transaction processing. Physicians decide whether to review and sign documentation on the secure Inscrybe website or receive and send documents by facsimile. This flexibility enhances communications between referring physicians and providers because each can do business the way they prefer. Electronic or fax replies are linked to the initial request and updated on all systems automatically. As a web-based platform, Inscrybe is inherently scalable and easy to implement, providing for business expansion at minimal cost.
"Inscrybe Healthcare helps to accelerate the trend toward efficiency already occurring at a growing number of physician practices seeking to optimize the provision of patient home care. Medical Services of America is an important customer for us and provides a good example of how a healthcare provider can build an efficient standardized process across multiple lines of healthcare businesses," said Paul Skinner, Vice President, Sales & Client Service at Authentidate.
