SAN FRANCISCO, Calif., April 22, 2015 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Medlert Inc. announces the release of a new product, Medlert Eligibility, a software tool that helps ambulance providers instantly verify customer demographics and billing information either up front or after an ambulance transport.
The new tool searches across 185 million patient records and is HIPAA-secure and encrypted. Medlert Eligibility is being offered on a pay-per-record basis.
"We built Medlert Eligibility to help ambulance providers quickly and securely verify patient demographics and billing information," said David Emanuel, Medlert CEO. "This tool is faster and more cost effective than anything available on the market today to verify patient eligibility for EMS services."
Aimed at aiding ambulance dispatchers and billing department staff at ambulance service companies, Medlert Eligibility allows for the quick look up of essential patient information for proper billing in cases of urgent and non-urgent ambulance transports.
"Given we are handling patient health information, data security is one of our top priorities," said Ernest Semerda, Medlert CTO. "We built Medlert Eligibility to help ambulance companies with billing needs and to access patient insurance information in a secure and HIPAA-compliant manner."
Medlert Eligibility is the second tool in Medlert Inc.'s suite of services, which offer ambulance providers better, more efficient software tools to drive fast, high-quality ambulance services. In 2014, Medlert Inc. released its first product on the Medlert platform, Medlert Connect, which is now in use in 167 healthcare facilities. Medlert Connect is a fast, secure, and cloud-based solution for ordering medical transports on mobile or web-enabled devices.
