Emdeon Introduces Mobile Application for Healthcare Claim Reporting Software, Emdeon Vision

NASHVILLE, Tenn., March 1 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- Emdeon Inc. (NYSE: EM), a leading provider of healthcare revenue and payment cycle management solutions, today announced the introduction of a mobile application for its award winning medical claim management platform Emdeon Vision(SM). The Emdeon Vision Mobile application offers healthcare providers an on-the-go snapshot of their claims and related cash flow and is compatible with the iPhone®, AndroidTM, Windows Mobile®, Palm® and many other "smart" portable devices.

Emdeon Vision for Claim Management is a web-based program that enables end-to-end visibility of healthcare claims from the point of submission to Emdeon through payer adjudication as well as fifteen months of historical claims data. It can be used in a standalone mode but may also be integrated with a number of leading physician office systems. Emdeon Vision for Claim Management is a simple yet powerful tool for day-to-day accounts receivable monitoring, error corrections and claim tracking. Interactive dashboard reporting also helps office staff and management analyze their claim rejections, including the top reasons for rejections.

Emdeon Vision Mobile is an extension of the web-based program and offers healthcare providers a quick glimpse into the claim management side of their practice from their portable handheld device. Physicians can identify trends or potential issues while monitoring their practice remotely via the mobile application.

"During the day, my focus is on my patients," said Emdeon Vision Mobile user Dr. Subir Guha of Gallatin Family Practice. "This mobile application offers me the ability, at a very quick glance, to monitor my practice when I'm not in the office and helps ensure that our insurance billing arrives to the insurance company without issues that could affect our cash flow or our patients."

"The Emdeon Vision Mobile application allows physicians to understand the potential issues or trends that might arise during the revenue cycle," said Philip Hardin, executive vice president of provider services for Emdeon. "We are proud to offer this convenient addition to Emdeon Vision to help healthcare providers monitor trends with payers, investigate high volume of rejection rates or inquire about claims requiring additional work."

Emdeon will be demonstrating the mobile application at booth number 7209 at the Healthcare Information and Management Systems Society (HIMSS) national conference in Atlanta, March 1-4, 2010, and the mobile application is currently available to registered Emdeon Vision for Claim Management users via: https://access.emdeon.com/PSL.
