BIRMINGHAM, Ala., April 25, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- For two years, Orthopaedic & Spine Center (OSC) in Newport News, VA has used White Plume Technologies' AccelaSCAN and AccelaSMART to accelerate the charge capture and coding process and electronically post charges to their practice management system. In 2012, physicians at OSC use White Plume's web-based mobile charge capture app, AccelaMOBILE, to capture charges on the device of their choice (iPhone, iPad, Android, tablet, or laptop) during rounds or to capture surgery charges from the hospital.
Practice extends productivity to the hospital
OSC physicians were looking for a more accurate and reliable way to capture charges when out of the office. After implementing AccelaMOBILE, they saw immediate results. Physicians report AccelaMOBILE saves them time and speeds their hospital billing process. Because charges are submitted in real time—as soon as the physician submits them—they have essentially eliminated the possibility of lost charges that was inherent when they used note cards.
"I appreciate the fact that I can submit my charges electronically to my billing team. It certainly speeds up our billing process."
- Dr. Jeffrey Carlson of Orthopaedic and Spine Center
Using White Plume products to deliver first pass clean claims has resulted in faster charge posting and claims processing, as well as reduced denials.
"AccelaMOBILE allows our physicians to submit surgery charges quickly and easily. The physician usually enters the charges on the same day as the procedure, allowing the billing department to submit claims faster and more accurately. I have worked with White Plume for over 10 years and would not want to manage a billing office without them."
- Kim Cologgi, Billing Manager
A more organized and efficient billing office means a more organized environment, eliminating the hassle of revised patient charges. OSC's staff is focused on providing excellent care.
