BERKELEY HEIGHTS, N.J., March 3, 2011 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Authentidate Holding Corp. (Nasdaq:ADAT), a worldwide provider of secure health information exchange, workflow management services and telehealth solutions, today announced a new customer. Ritecare Medical Products, a Brooklyn, NY based supplier of home medical equipment, has selected the Inscrybe® Healthcare referral management solution to improve its processes. Ritecare will be using Inscrybe to manage their care orders (referrals). Inscrybe provides significant processing-time reduction, simpler forms completion, and a unified information management and reporting interface. Management at Ritecare noticed that they were spending significant amounts of time and effort obtaining physician signatures to approve referrals and related documentation as well as for their office staff to manage the paper-intensive process manually. As a result, these delays are slowing down the reimbursement from insurers. Ritecare chose Inscrybe because of its proven ability to standardize and automate the manual tasks associated with the processing of referrals for home medical equipment providers. Mayer Zarchi, President of Ritecare, noted, "Inscrybe will enable us to enhance our customer service by offering our referring physicians various communications options, including secure electronic signature and scheduled fax delivery, depending on their preferences. We expect to shorten our current referral approval cycle while improving our ability to manage the process. In addition, Inscrybe offers us a scalable solution as our business grows." Marcus Wagstaff, National Sales Director for Authentidate, said, "We welcome Ritecare to the growing Inscrybe community of homecare organizations. Inscrybe is designed to enhance referral management, which makes it uniquely suited to meet Ritecare's needs for streamlining referral processing with referring physicians while providing Ritecare with improved management controls."
