ATLANTA, Nov. 30, 2010 /PRNewswire/ -- As the end of the year approaches, Ingenious Med continues to fuel growth. After an exceptionally successful third and start to the fourth quarter, the leaders in charge and data capture welcome new clients and the expansion of existing ones. With more than 500 medical facilities nationwide, Ingenious Med's product development and user base continues to flourish.
Signing more than 15 new sites in Q3 alone, Ingenious Med remains the most usable and successful solution available to hospitals and health systems.
The Emory Clinic, which began using Ingenious Med in 2000, recently expanded its user base to include all internal medicine specialties. In an effort to streamline results and efficiencies across 12 facilities and all inpatient physicians, Emory also made the decision to dually integrate all sites with a HIS and billing interface.
"Ingenious Med has provided us with the ability to increase revenue and processes for nearly a decade, and with a need to maximize dollars throughout the entire organization, implementation across all specialties proved to be a positive decision," said Karen England, Administrator of Revenue Cycle Management for Internal Medicine at Emory.
After Gwinnett Medical Center identified the need to implement a charge capture solution for its hospitalist service, the facility underwent an intensive review of products.
"The decision to go with Ingenious Med was clear," said Janet Schwalbe, Vice President of Physician Services at Gwinnett Medical. "This system provides us with the assurance of complete and accurate charges for every patient, with the ability to track performance and metrics of our physicians."
Another new client welcomed by Ingenious Med is BJC Medical Group. The group is implementing the charge capture solution for its hospitalists across three sites, Missouri Medical Center, Christian Hospital and Alton Memorial Hospital.
"The most non-technical user can easily learn this program," said Cheryl Hale, Regional Manager at BJC, addressing one of the most important features of Ingenious Med, its ease of use. "With Ingenious Med, we expect to see quicker charge capture, cleaner data and reduced revenue cycle time."
Beyond ease of use, accuracy and increased revenue, users also select Ingenious Med for its compliance features, said Brad Lembcke, M.D., Medical Director at Texas Primary Care and Medical Director of Care Coordination and Healthcare Improvement at Baylor University Medical Center at Dallas.
Very pleased to welcome new clients and successes, Ingenious Med maintains reaching new heights as it finishes off 2010 and looks to the new year. The Atlanta-based company continues to hire, expand office space, enhance product offerings and venture opportunities.
