CARLSBAD, Calif., Jan. 27, 2020 /PRNewswire/ -- Responding to a frequently cited pain point for both orthopedic physicians and their patients, Breg, Inc.'s latest software release will improve transparency around the cost of durable medical equipment (DME) products like knee braces, shoulder slings, splints, boots and crutches at the time of dispensement.
Billing for medical products varies widely based on contracted pricing with insurance agencies, individual healthcare coverage and deductibles, so doctors often can't give their patients precise cost estimates on products at the time they are prescribed. Breg Vision 7.0.8, available now in Apple's app store, features real-time benefits and eligibility checks that account for each patient's specific insurance plan. Using the app, doctors can identify the best products for a patient's recovery, then assess estimated costs with them upfront, empowering patients to be part of the decision.
Breg Vision is also the only orthopedic management software on the market that can connect directly into healthcare providers' Enterprise Resource Planning (ERP) systems, seamlessly integrating DME inventory management into the supply chain.
