Jan 04, 2010, 08:00 ET from Authentidate Holding Corp.

BERKELEY HEIGHTS, N.J., Jan. 4 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- Authentidate Holding Corp. (Nasdaq: ADAT), a worldwide provider of secure Health Information Exchange and workflow management services, today announced that HomeTown Oxygen, a supplier of home respiratory products and services, has implemented Authentidate's Inscrybe® Healthcare web-based service to simplify the prompt completion of patient care orders.

"As HomeTown Oxygen continues to grow, our goal is to reduce the time and effort it takes to complete patient care orders, which will allow us to reduce our costs as well as provide improved service to our patients and referral sources. HomeTown Oxygen chose to implement Inscrybe due to its proven ability to automate repetitive manual processes and accelerating the turnaround of care orders for businesses similar to ours in the healthcare industry," said Scott Dinning, Owner of HomeTown Oxygen. "We expect the enhanced administrative procedures to reduce care order completion times, while improving our ability to manage each order individually."

The Inscrybe Healthcare automated workflow solution improves efficiency and reduces human error when processing authorization forms with referring physicians and payors for patient care orders, including therapy, home care services, medical equipment and supplies. Inscrybe Healthcare automates most of the manual workflow processes and effectively tracks the status of those communications.

Referring physicians can decide whether they prefer to communicate through fax or online through Inscrybe's web-based service. Inscrybe provides both online as well as fax functionality on a unified platform so managing the process is simplified for the supplier.
