US healthcare group Doctors Care has introduced Companion Technologies’ electronic billing system at its 50 urgent and primary care centers in South Carolina and East Tennessee.
A total of 260 staff members will use software which provides complete revenue cycle management from electronic claims to eligibility checking. Doctors Care said the system had been principally adopted to take electronic payments from insurers, and its ability to post EoBs to its system automatically.
Doctors Care, CFO Jerry Wells said, We’ve grown pretty fast – we see over 500,000 patients a year in South Carolina alone – so we needed a practice management software that was more robust. For example our current product had limitations on the number of locations in its database, but if our patients move among our clinics the Companion PM database will follow that.
