Patient Placement Systems and MedFORCE Technologies Announce Partnership, Integrated DME/HME Intake, Referral and Document Management Software

Healthcare Software Partnership Marks First Integrated Intake Automation and Paperless Office Solution for DME/HME Providers

ATLANTA, GA. and CHESTNUT RIDGE, N.Y. September 9, 2008 - Patient Placement Systems and MedFORCE Technologies today announced a partnership that enables DME/HME providers to integrate referral intake automation with electronic document management, creating the industry's most complete paperless office solution.

"The process for evaluating and fulfilling medical equipment requests involves many types of documents," said Esther Apter, founder and CEO of MedFORCE. She cited as examples patient medical documents, insurance claims forms, correspondence and order forms. "With this integrated solution, DME/HME providers can eliminate paper documents and save time at every stage of the referral, intake, and patient and order management life cycle."

The Web-based Patient Placement Referral Management System automates intake and referral processes for DME/HME and other long-term healthcare providers. The solution converts incoming referral faxes to electronic documents, and automates referral review and tracking. MedFORCE 6 is a complete paperless software solution offering DME/HME providers the ability to scan patient records, create and import electronic forms, import faxes, and manage EOMBs. The companies teamed to build an interface that takes patient details from the Referral Management System and automatically creates new patient document folder in MedFORCE 6.

"It's a logical and beneficial merge of our intake automation at the front end of the process with comprehensive MedFORCE paperless document storage, retrieval and archiving," said Eric Christ, president of Patient Placement Systems. "Now for DME/HME providers, documents never have to be paper again, and the integrated software solution makes intake and fulfillment more accurate, efficient and compliant with privacy guidelines."
