ERA Launch Prize Draw

Med­ical EDI Ser­vices recently held a con­fer­ence at The River Club in Cape Town to announce the immi­nent release of our inte­grated Elec­tronic Remit­tance Advice (ERA) which is in final pilot stage. This ser­vice will shortly be avail­able to all clients who use MedEDI®, the Company’s Prac­tice Man­age­ment Appli­ca­tion soft­ware, with direct inte­gra­tion of the ERA and autoal­lo­ca­tion of the remit­tance into the billing and receipt­ing soft­ware.

The pilot phase has been tremen­dously suc­cess­ful, and an exam­ple of the effi­ciency, accu­racy and time-saving of the inte­grated ERA include a remit­tance to the value of around R80 000 suc­cess­fully rec­on­ciled by a med­ical bureau in under 2 min­utes, where done man­u­ally it would have taken an entire day. The ser­vice is avail­able for all major admin­is­tra­tors and their Schemes, includ­ing Met­ro­pol­i­tan Health Group, Dis­cov­ery Health and Med­scheme, and with in excess of 85% of remit­tances deliv­ered elec­tron­i­cally, it will dra­mat­i­cally influ­ence work­flow processes in the Practice.

The Com­pany has a close rela­tion­ship with impor­tant part­ners in the indus­try. Rep­re­sented at the con­fer­ence were CPC­Quali­care, a sig­nif­i­cant IPA in the West­ern Cape, along with Hello Doc­tor show­cas­ing their inte­grated Hello Doctor4Doctors online por­tal, and NuCare with whom we are closely aligned in deliv­er­ing for­mu­lary com­pli­ant e-scripts to phar­macy.
