McKesson Introduces Medisoft Mobile App for iPad, iPhone
McKesson Corporation recently announced the introduction the Medisoft Mobile app for the iPad and iPhone. The free app can be downloaded by users from the Apple App Store.
In a statement, Cheryl Gerlitz, owner, MD Solutions, said that, “We implemented the new mobile application for one of our billing clients and it has reduced the time to enter charges by over 60 percent. This allows us to focus on working the accounts receivable rather than charge entry. The doctor and his staff are excited because they don’t have to track down missing encounter forms because of this application.”
The Medisoft Mobile app is ideal for the newly-released Medisoft V18, and has been designed for enabling the easy integration of mobile computing technology and practice management systems, thus providing users with the required flexibility and accessibility.
David Henriksen, senior vice president, McKesson Physician Practice Solutions, said that, “Like most small practices, our Medisoft customers are facing the challenge of reduced Medicare reimbursements and need new ways to gain efficiencies and enhance revenue generation. By improving accessibility and optimizing data capture, Medisoft Mobile can help them do just that. Our customers are excited about the potential of mobile in their practices, and we’re happy to be able to offer this solution to them.”
By integrating the capabilities of both the Medisoft Mobile and Medisoft v18, McKesson makes it easy for providers to view their schedules over their phones or tablets. They can also use their mobile devices to relay charges, diagnosis codes, and notes to the front desk or biller. By enabling the electronic capture of charges and diagnoses, the need for paper superbills is effectively mitigated, which in turn helps optimize documentation and lower instances of data entry errors.
Physician practices can use the Medisoft Mobile offering to improve the running of their practice, as time otherwise spent on administrative tasks is effectively reduced.
