Unicomp Corp. of America will Introduce its Integrated POWERstation™ Patient Registration Kiosk at the MGMA 2008 Annual Conference

Unicomp Corp. of America, a leading provider of process automation products that energize the business side of medicine, will showcase its comprehensive POWERstation platform during the MGMA 2008 Annual Conference (October 19-21) in San Diego, California, at exhibitor booth #1015. POWERstation is a part of Unicomp’s IMPOWER™ family of workflow optimization solutions that are specifically developed for the office-based medical practice.

POWERstation is a feature-rich ‘elegantly simple’ application that includes an innovative suite of productivity tools to improve patient registration efficiency and accuracy. Patient registration is also the beginning of the revenue cycle. Improving patient demographic and insurance information accuracy will reduce insurance claim denials and increase cash-flow. Patient registration errors account for approximately 60% of all insurance claim denials, and subsequently result in unnecessary revenue write-offs and labor-intensive claim rework. For example, it is estimated that by incorporating the POWERstation solution, a moderate-size group practice could realize a bottom line benefit of several hundred thousand dollars, and thus yield a significant return on investment.

POWERstation’s unique technology platform includes a combination of clerk-assisted workstations and/or self-service kiosks that can be used individually, or can coexist as complementary components, to enhance the patient check-in process. POWERstation seamlessly integrates, and shares data, with any Practice Management (PM) and Electronic Medical Record (EMR) system through the use of the widely-supported HL7 messaging protocol and ODBC connectivity, without requiring a custom interface. Patient-completed forms are automatically translated into text records using handwriting recognition technology. Authorization and consent form signatures are electronically captured and sealed in a legally-binding, HIPAA-compliant, digital document format. Insurance cards, driver licenses, referrals, and other patient-provided documents are scanned along with the patient-completed forms and stored in paperless patient charts and folders, which are accessible locally or from remote offices. Optical Character Recognition (OCR) technology converts insurance card and driver license information into digital patient data. Insurance eligibility is verified in real-time over the Internet, allowing co-pay and deductible requirements to be determined. Payments are collected by check or credit card, and immediately processed electronically, before medical services are rendered.

"As a long time user of Unicomp's IMPOWER solutions, I know the benefits they bring to the patient registration process," says Ron Welty, Executive Director, Amarillo Heart Group. "Our clinic sees over 300 patients a day and the efficiencies we’ve gained from using IMPOWER products at our check-in desks have helped our organization immensely."

“Technical advancements for most practice management tasks have out-paced those for the patient registration process, with registration continuing to be burdened by manual paperwork handling, inefficient data entry, and a general lack of automation,” says Andy Kaplan, President of Unicomp. “By being able to selectively integrate the clerk-assisted and self-service functional capabilities within a practice, POWERstation could be custom configured for any group size, medical specialty, patient demographic or budget”
