As payer enrollment requirements and policies continue to become more stringent, the risk of revenue loss associated with late and denied applications is a very real threat, particularly to larger organizations like KMSF.
MedAptus has been a valuable partner to KMSF and as someone who has prior experience with Newport Credentialing Solutions and its offerings, which comprise the Enroll solution, I am confident that the combined effort will produce the revenue cycle effect we are seeking," said Motti Edelstein, chief revenue officer, UK HealthCare.
Our relationship with KMSF has evolved tremendously over the past seven years.
While we had become accustomed to the fact that formal releases were sporadic, once we were informed that the product would not be made compatible with the latest Windows Mobile operating system, precluding our doctors from adopting smart phone devices, it was clear that we needed to investigate other solutions for charge capture," says Darrell Griffith, executive director of KMSF.
Functions such as wireless synchronization, messaging and real-time coding edits were far superior to our previous system," says Peggy Halcomb, associate director of KMSF.
KMSF opted for a phased rollout of the new technology, starting with the conversion of all 200 existing charge-capture users.
Payor contracts drive reimbursement for medical services, making it essential for medical groups like KMSF
to fully understand its contract terms and how they affect payment," said Tom Stampiglia, CEO of MPV.
MDeverywhere continues to grow in key markets and our success is fueled by positive decisions from high-profile clients like KMSF, who choose to expand usage toward enterprise deployment," stated David Morris, national vice president of sales at MDeverywhere.
KMSF serves as the centralized practice plan organization for the more than 480 faculty physicians at the University of Kentucky Medical Center.
The first KMSF physician users of Practice Plus were live on the mobile system in early 2008.
KMSF will shortly embark on its "Phase II" of implementation which encompasses an additional 150 clinician users.
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.
