Navicure Unveils Automated Patient Check-In Solution

Atlanta, GA, March 04, 2009 --( Navicure Check-InTM enables physician practices to conduct real-time eligibility and more through a user-friendly, all-payer kiosk solution.

Navicure, a leading Internet-based medical claims clearinghouse for physician practices, today announced the availability of its self-service patient kiosk solution, Navicure Check-In. Navicure partnered with Clearwave to offer the solution, which can operate as a stand-alone platform or be integrated with any practice management or health information system. Through the use of Navicure Check-In, physician practices can streamline the patient check-in process, including verifying patient insurance eligibility in real-time; providing immediate and accurate amounts for each patient’s co-pay, co-insurance and deductible; and collecting co-pays through the kiosk at the time of service.

“Navicure Check-In addresses the growing patient demand for efficient and accurate check-in, while also helping physician practices improve cash flow and staff productivity,” said Jim Denny, CEO of Navicure. “This solution is a key part of our mission to improve accounts receivables for our clients.”

Navicure’s existing Web-based account receivables management solutions enable practices to automate receivables processes, including patient eligibility verification; primary and secondary claims reimbursement; rejected and denied claims management; electronic remittance posting; claims and remittance reporting and analysis; and patient statement processing. Navicure Check-In builds on this core offering by improving the eligibility verification process for both the patient and practice, along with offering co-payment processing for the first time.

Physician practices can realize the following benefits through the use of Navicure Check-In:

Efficiency: decreased administrative costs; less check-in time for both staff and patient; greater accuracy of data input.

Real-time insurance eligibility verification: all-payer eligibility verification in one portal.

Security: HIPAA compliant due to encrypted data transmission.

“We are excited to partner with a forward-thinking company like Navicure,” said Gerard White, CEO of Clearwave. “Practices spend too much time reviewing and correcting insurance information, which can ultimately result in lost revenue and time. This solution ensures that information is collected correctly upfront with the goal of reducing time and staff needed for check-in, as well as revenue delay and loss from inaccurate claims on the back-end.”
