PLANO, Texas Innovative Card Scanning, a developer and provider of insurance card and ID scanning solutions for physicians, hospitals, medical billers, pharmacies and retail clinics, has teamed up with RediClinic.
Innovative Card Scanning's DocketPORT Scanning Technology is now in place at 21 RediClinic locations across Houston and Austin, with plans for the scanning technology to be placed in future locations.
"Our business is based around the treatment of common conditions that can be accomplished conveniently and quickly for patients. It's very important for us to optimize our check-in process to be as quick and efficient as we can, and this is one more way to help make that a reality," stated RediClinic COO Lori Knowles.
With the new system, RediClinic patients have their insurance card and/ or driver's license immediately scanned upon the office visit, creating a secure electronic record that follows them throughout the billing process.
The RediClinic billing department uses these files as a reference throughout the process to quickly confirm information accuracy or identify and correct any errors in-house. This system eliminates the need for paper files or to perform outside research to correct errors, and saves payment and claims that would sometimes be lost due to insufficient contact information, according to the company.
RedicClinic will have the option to further upgrade to Innovative Card Scanning's optical character recognition technology, which will automatically extract patient data and populate it into their EMR system.
