VANCOUVER, Wash.--(BUSINESS WIRE)-- Office Ally, the only organization in the country offering healthcare providers a full suite of revenue-cycle management services, will showcase its full array of products and services at the 2011 Healthcare Billing and Management Association meeting being held September 14-16 at the Bellagio Hotel in Las Vegas. Office Ally will be at booth #121.
Office Ally’s comprehensive portfolio includes a practice management system, electronic health records, clearinghouse and patient portal. Last month the company announced that all of these support tools are now compatible with all Apple products – including MAC computers and iPads – meaning that providers nationwide can now utilize both PC and MAC platforms to access any of the Office Ally products.
“We have found a tremendous reception in the market for the products, service and affordability that has become our hallmark,” said Brian O’Neill, president and CEO of Office Ally. “The HBMA conference gives us an opportunity to meet face to face with medical billing professionals who are looking for new ways to increase efficiencies, save money, and make their office run smoother. This includes the smart use of technology, which now rules the world of medical claims processing.”
Toward that end, Office Ally’s practice management product – Practice Mate™ – creates and maintains patient demographics, insurance, appointments, visit information and contains a complete accounts receivable section. Offered free to providers, it creates claims and submits them electronically, manages payments/deposits, creates and sends patient statements, and creates financial reports.
Office Ally also offers a comprehensive electronic health records product (EHR 24/7, v. 3.6.0) that has been certified for meaningful use requirements. “Thanks to smart, affordable technology, the administrative advances in this industry are really quite spectacular,” said O’Neill. “We look forward to sharing with attendees how they can partner with us for little or no cost and make their lives a whole lot easier.”
Through the Practice Mate and EHR products, Office Ally provides batch eligibility capabilities that verify insurance and specifies the patient’s co-pay and remaining deductible still to be met. With patients changing insurance more frequently than ever before, being able to verify all pertinent information before the patient even comes in for care reduces “uncollectible visits/admissions” and provides a much-needed level of confidence in medical claims processing. And thanks to Office Ally, this can all be done electronically, saving the time and hassle of calling insurance companies for verification.
Specifically designed for medical billing professionals as well as first-party billers who specialize in office-based billing and practice management, the HBMA Conference will feature educational sessions, legislative insights and networking opportunities for the medical billing community. The HBMA membership includes more than 30,000 employees at over 600 companies who manage claims on behalf of hospital-based physicians, physician practices and other providers. An increasing number also offer accounts receivable management, consulting, electronic medical record services and practice management functions.
Office Ally is the only organization in the country offering healthcare providers a full complement of revenue-cycle management services including a patient portal, electronic health records, a practice management system and a clearinghouse and will connect to any health information exchange free of charge. Founded in 2000, the company currently works with more than 164,000 providers and 5,400 insurance carriers in all 50 states. It also houses eligibility for nearly 400 IPAs and small health plans. Its complete suite of interactive asp, Internet-based solutions include a patient health registry – Patient Ally™, electronic health records – EHR 24/7™, practice management – Practice Mate™, clearinghouse, and case management – Case Mate™.
