MedicsRIS Mobility with MedicsPortal and MedicsKiosk Patients are Electronically Connected and Engaged - Optimizes Obtaining Patient Responsibility Amounts.

November 20, 2018 - Paramus NJ - MedicsRIS from Advanced Data Systems (ADS) supports a number of mobility and connectivity capabilities including the MedicsPortal, MedicsKiosk, interactive appointment reminder texting, and ways to help ensure imaging centers obtain patient responsibility payments as those amounts continue to grow.

The Healthcare Financial Management Association (HFMA) noted in July 2018 that patient responsibility amounts increased to 12.2% of their total healthcare bills in the first quarter of 2017 versus 8% during that same period in 2012.

MedicsRIS displays the patient’s responsibility amount which is communicated to the   patient in advance giving the imaging center an opportunity to obtain a partial, if not a full payment now, or to establish a payment plan. 

On the portal side, MedicsPortal empowers patients to self-serve 24 x 7 x 365 by enabling them to schedule imaging center appointments, to complete questionnaires in advance, and to view their images and reports to the extent allowable by the center. Patients can also edit their demographics and / or insurance information without requiring staff assistance.

Patients are able to pay securely online through the MedicsPortal which also ties back into patients knowing their responsibility amounts. 

On arrival, patients use the MedicsKiosk to complete any additionally-needed questionnaires and information eliminating paper forms and manual data entry.   

Content entered through the portal or kiosk is viewable by radiologists, technicians, and any other authorized staff.

Sheryl Miller MBA, ADS Vice President of Sales said, “Today, the patient’s experience   and obtaining their payments have never been more important. MedicsRIS works to maximize the patient’s experience while empowering our clients to not only obtain patient payments, but to also comprehensively manage the imaging center’s financial and operational requirements.

MedicsRIS has a built-in, case-specific patient attorney feature ideal for radiology, simplifying how patients’ attorneys are managed and tracked. It supports interactive appointment reminder texting, a nearly 99% success rate on first attempt clearinghouse HCFA /  WC / NF claims, pre-appointment eligibility verifications, claim tracking, denial management, EOB reconciliations via ERAs, multi-modality scheduling, and wide-ranging financial and operational reports and KPIs.

MedicsRCM is available if comprehensive outsourced radiology revenue cycle management is preferred. MedicsRCM typically increases clients’ revenue by 10%-20%.

Marc became an accomplished drummer and teacher after studying with some of the top jazz drummers in NYC, all as a result of being told since early in life to “beat it.”
