GREENWOOD VILLAGE, Colo., Feb. 1 /PRNewswire/ -- Recondo Technology, a leading provider of revenue cycle solutions for the healthcare industry, announced today the release of Omni278. This service provides a standard electronic EDI 278 transaction to UnitedHealthcare conforming to new UnitedHealthcare rules for notification of a patient admission. Currently UnitedHealthcare requests hospitals to submit EDI notification of each inpatient admission within 24 hours.
The Recondo Omni278 service offers hospitals an easy-to-implement service for delivering the admission notification to UnitedHealthcare. Omni278 facilitates the submission process by accepting admission data in a variety of forms, including an electronic file, an email message, a phone call, or a fax. Omni278 converts this information into a 278 transaction and submits it electronically. Providers then use the Recondo Control Center Worklist to obtain status of the UnitedHealthcare notification number and to manage and reconcile accounts.
"Recondo extends our software services to hospitals by making it easy to accommodate the UnitedHealthcare procedures and eliminate the risk of denial because a notification was submitted after the 24-hour deadline," said Rick Adam, Recondo Founder and CEO. "Recondo is poised to help hospitals deliver accurate and timely electronic admission notifications. As the industry moves from manual tasks to Electronic Data Interchange (EDI) formats, such as the 278 family of authorization messages, healthcare will become more efficient."
Recondo services are web-based Software as a Service (SaaS), requiring no capital budget and no additional hardware or software installation. Recondo services are developed using high-speed, high-volume rules-based processing, giving hospitals unmatched and immediate access to real-time data.
