Patient claims now submitted electronically for more seamless user experience and eliminates upfront costs to patients
TORONTO, Sept. 28, 2016 /CNW/ - Practice Perfect clinical management software is now enabled for electronic claims. By integrating an eClaims solution from TELUS Health, Canada's largest health IT company, directly into the management software, Practice Perfect is delivering a seamless user experience that verifies patient insurance coverage, processes payments on behalf of their patients, and eliminates upfront costs for the patient.
In the past, providers treating patients covered by any of the 10 insurance companies partnered with TELUS Health, including Great West Life, Manulife, and Sun Life, would record patient and treatment information in Practice Perfect and then re-enter much of the same information in a separate eClaims portal to direct bill. Today, staff need only enter patient, insurer and treatment information into the Practice Perfect software and claims are electronically submitted to TELUS Health participating insurers for processing and payment.
"More healthcare providers are now able to offer eClaims to their patients as it takes significantly less time to see the process through one tool," said Steven Presement, Founder and President of Practice Perfect. "Any clinic using this new integration will have a leg up on their competition and be able to provide their patients with a more efficient service."
The addition of this new process also reduces out-of-pocket expenses for the patient and eliminates the hassle sometimes experienced when submitting claims to insurance providers. Removing these upfront financial strains on the patient also has the potential to encourage more patients to seek the care they require.
"We hope that this new feature will enable thousands of patients across Canada to receive affordable healthcare and cement our position as the country's most popular practice management software vendor for the rehabilitation sector," added Presement.
