Medical Services of America Selects Authentidate's Inscrybe Healthcare to Standardize Healthcare Order Process Management

BERKELEY HEIGHTS, N.J., Aug. 3 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- Authentidate Holding Corp. (Nasdaq: ADAT), a worldwide provider of secure Health Information Exchange and workflow management services, today announced that Medical Services of America, Inc., a leading provider of home healthcare services and medical equipment, headquartered in Lexington South Carolina, will implement Authentidate's Inscrybe(TM) Healthcare web-based service to streamline completion of healthcare referral orders and other healthcare documentation by physicians.

"When operating in the full range of healthcare businesses that Medical Services of America addresses, healthcare referrals and medical order approvals can be quite a complex and extended process. The Inscrybe standardized process gives Medical Services of America consistent standardized physician customer service options and flexibility as well as simplifying physician communications," said Donna Camit, Vice President at Medical Services of America. "Inscrybe also allows us several options to transition to more efficient paperless communications and interface with our more sophisticated physician practice EMR (Electronic Medical Record) systems."

Inscrybe Healthcare facilitates information exchange with referring physicians for all types of healthcare transactions, including Plan of Care, Certificates of Medical Necessity, Prior Authorizations, Written Orders and other care documents required for the authorization of therapy and care services, or medical equipment and supplies for patients. The web-based service automates manual workflow processes and efficiently tracks the status of those communications, reducing the approval cycle time from referring physicians. The streamlined workflows improve the efficiency of clinical and administrative processes, reducing costs while reinforcing best practices.

Inscrybe Healthcare can also interface with billing and clinical EMR systems to further reduce errors and costs of transaction processing. Physicians decide whether to review and sign documentation on the secure Inscrybe website or receive and send documents by facsimile. This flexibility enhances communications between referring physicians and providers because each can do business the way they prefer. Electronic or fax replies are linked to the initial request and updated on all systems automatically. As a web-based platform, Inscrybe is inherently scalable and easy to implement, providing for business expansion at minimal cost.

"Inscrybe Healthcare helps to accelerate the trend toward efficiency already occurring at a growing number of physician practices seeking to optimize the provision of patient home care. Medical Services of America is an important customer for us and provides a good example of how a healthcare provider can build an efficient standardized process across multiple lines of healthcare businesses," said Paul Skinner, Vice President, Sales & Client Service at Authentidate.

Over the course of two days, in addition to insightful conversations and presentations delving into the industry's current pressing challenges, there was considerable buzz about digital transformation and how it is enabling global enterprises to accelerate business growth. Blockchain has been a term that people hear but don't quite understand. The most common myths about blockchain include the assumption that it is private, or that there is only one blockchain, and the idea that blockchain is...
Where many organizations get into trouble, however, is that they try to have a broad and deep knowledge in each of these areas. This is a huge blow to an organization's productivity. By automating or outsourcing some of these pieces, such as databases, infrastructure, and networks, your team can instead focus on development, testing, and deployment. Further, organizations that focus their attention on these areas can eventually move to a test-driven development structure that condenses several l...
The term "digital transformation" (DX) is being used by everyone for just about any company initiative that involves technology, the web, ecommerce, software, or even customer experience. While the term has certainly turned into a buzzword with a lot of hype, the transition to a more connected, digital world is real and comes with real challenges. In his opening keynote, Four Essentials To Become DX Hero Status Now, Jonathan Hoppe, Co-Founder and CTO of Total Uptime Technologies, shared that ...

A total of 88% of Fortune 500 companies from a generation ago are now out of business. Only 12% still survive. Similar percentages are found throug...
Never mind that we might not know what the future holds for cryptocurrencies and how much values will fluctuate or even how the process of mining a coin could cost as much as the value of the coin itself - cryptocurrency mining is a hot industry and shows no signs of slowing down. However, energy consumption to mine cryptocurrency is one of the biggest issues facing this industry. Burning huge amounts of electricity isn't incidental to cryptocurrency, it's basically embedded in the core of "mini...
Every organization is facing their own Digital Transformation as they attempt to stay ahead of the competition, or worse, just keep up. Each new opportunity, whether embracing machine learning, IoT, or a cloud migration, seems to bring new development, deployment, and management models. The results are more diverse and federated computing models than any time in our history.

Digital Transformation is much more than a buzzword. The radical shift to digital mechanisms for almost every process is evident across all industries and verticals. This is often especially true in financial services, where the legacy environment is many times unable to keep up with the rapidly shifting demands of the consumer. The constant pressure to provide complete, omnichannel delivery of customer-facing solutions to meet both regulatory and customer demands is putting enormous pressure on...
IoT is rapidly becoming mainstream as more and more investments are made into the platforms and technology. As this movement continues to expand and gain momentum it creates a massive wall of noise that can be difficult to sift through. Unfortunately, this inevitably makes IoT less approachable for people to get started with and can hamper efforts to integrate this key technology into your own portfolio. There are so many connected products already in place today with many hundreds more on the h...
