SourcePlus Eligibility Automates Benefit Verification, Eliminating Costly Manual Processes and Providing Greater Efficiency
Birmingham, AL (PRWEB) October 19, 2009 -- SourceMedical (www.sourcemed.net) and Encircle Healthcare (www.encirclehealth.com) today announced the formation of a new partnership to offer an automated insurance verification solution to Ambulatory Surgery Centers (ASCs). SourceMedical's SourcePlus Eligibility saves ASCs time and money by automating time-consuming, labor intensive processes used to verify coverage. SourcePlus Eligibility automatically verifies a patient's benefits in real-time as cases are scheduled into an ASC's SourceMedical application, eliminating the need for time-consuming phone calls to insurers, or direct data entry into multiple websites.
SourcePlus Eligibility gives ASCs the peace of mind and added efficiency of knowing that the full details of a patient's benefits are being electronically captured and stored in a secure, web-based portal, with no additional manual steps required to obtain the data. Further enhancing the benefits, this integrated tool provides customizable work flow that allows facilities to capture the most up-to-date details of a patient's coverage, co-pay, and deductible amounts, and provides triggers to proactively warn users of potential gaps in a patient's coverage.
"We have seen an increasing awareness within the healthcare industry of the fact that by better utilizing the Internet to automate communications and data exchange between stakeholders, facilities can gain significant cost savings and boost productivity," said Ron Pelletier, vice president of market strategy of SourceMedical's Surgery Division. "SourcePlus Eligibility changes the game for our clients by allowing them to completely eliminate the labor intensive processes and replace them with smart, money-saving web-based automation."
"Through our partnership with SourceMedical, we can now offer ASCs our powerful tool to process all of their benefit verification inquiries," said Troy Clifton, vice president of sales and marketing of Encircle Healthcare. "Our eligibility verification tool offers extensive benefits beyond that of simply verifying coverage. By eliminating all of the manual steps, and by providing an automated means to manage the entire process, our ASC users will see a significant and immediate return on investment."
SourcePlus Eligibility is currently integrated with SourceMedical's AdvantX, Vision, and SurgiSource applications, enabling facilities to automate the entire process of obtaining verification of coverage and benefits details for their patients. This leads to improved profitability and productivity while reducing account receivable days and billing errors.
