Dallas-based T-System, a healthcare IT solutions firm specializing in episodic and emergency care, has partnered with Watertown, Mass.-based athenahealth, a medical services provider for hospital and ambulatory clients. Additionally, T-System’s RevCycle solution will now be available as an integrated solution to athenahealth network.
According to T-System, the application increases the efficiency and transparency of charge capture and coding. Charge capture and coding is the process used by physicians and healthcare providers to get paid for their services. The program reportedly delivers accurate accounting for the entire care process—and its fees—to ensure a more exact reimbursement. The application is now accessible to more than 100,000 in-network healthcare providers.
Bradley Cordes, executive VP of T-System, said in a statement: “Charge capture and coding present unique challenges to outpatient environments, particularly in light of ever-increasing regulations. RevCycle+ combines intelligent coding technology with expert services for a solution that improves quality and compliance, resulting in more accurate coding and improved financial outcomes.”
