Lynchburg, Va. – September 27, 2013 – Benchmark Systems, a leading Internet based provider of fully integrated medical practice solutions, announced today that both Dr. Schiuma and Dr. Catanzaro, based out of Fort Lauderdale, FL will implement its Clinical EHR and Practice Management software to automate the clinical and business functions of their practice. Benchmark’s fully-integrated suite of products will employ a billing module and a clinical database with templates designed specifically for orthopaedic practices. The software has built-in workflow tools to increase efficiency, reduce errors and accelerate payments.
Dr. Schiuma and Dr. Catanzaro will now electronically document patient health and development details at the point of care via securely encrypted technology. From the EHR, automated coding recommendations will be sent to the billing module. Electronic claims submission, real-time unpaid claims follow-up, and electronic payment posting from insurance carriers will shorten A/R cycles. Mail merge and reporting features will enhance billing and collection processes and improve overall patient communication.
“It is a pleasure to work with such forward-thinking doctors, who have researched the major vendors before making a decision that affects their healthcare providers and, more importantly, their patients,” said Ernie Chastain, Vice President at Benchmark. “We will continue to support this practice at the highest level,” said Chastain.
