Montgomery Medical Equipment Company Chooses Authentidate's Inscrybe To Enable Paperless Care Order Processing With Referring Physicians

BERKELEY HEIGHTS, N.J., Sept. 23, 2013 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Authentidate Holding Corp. (Nasdaq:ADAT), a provider of secure web-based software applications and telehealth products and services for healthcare organizations, announced today that Montgomery Medical Equipment Company, a durable medical equipment supplier in Pennsylvania, has selected Authentidate's Inscrybe ® Referral and Order Management solution to enable paperless processing with referring physicians of the care orders required to supply their patients with medical equipment.

"Many physicians and hospitals in our service area are moving to electronic communications for physician orders, CMNs and other required care order documentation," said Nate Killough, Managing Respiratory Director at Montgomery Medical Equipment Company. "Inscrybe automates the care order process meeting all of these needs, and also provides electronic signatures and fax options for our referring physicians. After evaluating Inscrybe's capabilities, it was a natural choice for us."

The Inscrybe Referral and Order Management automated workflow solution is a web-based software service that improves efficiency and reduces human error when processing critical authorization forms with referring physicians for patient care orders, including therapy, home care services, medical equipment and other medical supplies. Inscrybe automates the manual workflow processes and effectively tracks the status of those communications from the initial referral through care order completion.

The improved workflows provided by Inscrybe have a proven track record of reducing turnaround time, improving completeness and reducing delays in processing patient care documentation required for reimbursement, thereby reducing unbilled and other held revenues that affect cash flow. In addition, Inscrybe customers have also reported improved order completion and approval time of 30% - 70%. Inscrybe's streamlined workflow also improves communications with referring physicians. 

Physicians can use Inscrybe to exchange, update, complete and electronically sign referrals and care orders quickly and accurately using the web-based application.  Inscrybe provides both online as well as fax functionality on a unified platform to enable suppliers and physicians to select their communication preferences.

"Inscrybe is an intuitive web-based service designed to make the review, update and approval of medical care order forms an easy, efficient and cost-effective process," said Marcus Wagstaff, Sales Director at Authentidate. "We are confident that Inscrybe will help Montgomery enhance physician communications, and reduce both overhead costs and delays in processing patient care order documentation that is required for timely reimbursements."
