UNIVERSITY PHYSICIAN ASSOCIATES EXPANDS THEIR COMPREHENSIVE COMPLIANCE PROGRAM USING MEDAPTUS
BOSTON, MA - (Send2Press Newswire) -- Oct. 9, 2003 -- University
Physician Associates (UPA), the faculty practice plan of New Jersey
Medical School, has been a leader in the healthcare community for 19
years. In 2002, its Executive team recognized the need to decrease
administrative costs for billing and coding, while at the same time
expanding their comprehensive compliance program based on the Medicare
and Medicaid regulations.
In September of 2002, University Physician
Associates (UPA) initiated implementation with MedAptus, a healthcare
information technology company based in Boston, MA, to provide all of
their 350 clinically active physicians with a comprehensive suite of
mobile workflow and revenue enhancing solutions including Charges In
Hand, a solution that combines intelligent workflow management with
real-time coding edits and coding support.
The implementation of the MedAptus Charges In Hand, Code Assist
and Coding Reference solutions at University Physician Associates
(UPA), resulted in operational improvements including a 13% increase in
gross charges per encounter, reduction in average days to payment by 15
days and most importantly, enabled UPA to implement a comprehensive
coding and compliance program designed to monitor their compliance with
the numerous Medicare and Medicaid medical billing rules.
Michael Saulich, Executive Director of UPA, said, "MedAptus has not only
streamlined my billing process by providing an electronic platform for
charge capture, but they have also allowed me to promote billing
compliance and lower my overall compliance expenditure."
