ATLANTA, June 29 /PRNewswire/ -- Eagle Hospital Physicians, LLC, a private hospitalist company, has recently completed its first year of a successful partnership with Ingenious Med, leaders in charge capture automation.  

Eagle began utilizing Ingenious Med's IM Practice Manager in February 2009 to enhance charge capture, reporting, documentation and communication. With more than 300 users across nearly 30 sites, Eagle has successfully implemented Ingenious Med practice-wide with virtually 100 percent physician adoption.

"The transition to Ingenious Med has been smooth and widely successful," said Eagle Practice Services Analyst, Julie Habif. "The ease of use, breadth of diagnosis lookup and sign-out has created a high adoption rate for our practicing hospitalists."

Beyond optimizing charge capture and billing, over the last year Eagle has increased communication, physician handoff, diagnosis accuracy, coding patterns and reporting capabilities.

"The fact that Ingenious Med was built by physicians weighed heavy on our decision to partner with them," said Eagle VP of Practice Services, Raleigh Heard. "IM Practice Manager is beyond a simple charge capture solution. It customizes to our business and provides a daily utilization that is friendly to our staff."

Eagle's implementation of Ingenious Med has contributed to its goal of creating a completely paperless billing process. With a dual integration, users can pull data to and from the hospital information system, IM Practice Manager and the billing software, creating accurate and efficient billing procedures throughout Eagle facilities.

"Eagle is known as an industry leader and we've enjoyed empowering its users and creating new solutions for them in the marketplace," said Ingenious Med CEO, Hart Williford. "We look forward to broadening this successful partnership and maintaining the highest usability and results for this group."
