"The project came off without a major hitch," said Walt Pickett, II, SVP of Deployment and Support for Digitech. "We got Greenbrier up and running in just under 60 days from contract signing to the go-live date."
The speedy implementation is a testament to the years of effort that Mr. Pickett and his team of developers and account managers have directed towards creating an efficient plan for delivering a project of this scale. The Greenbrier deployment provided an opportunity for the team to test the new platform that Digitech has developed to manage new client implementations. The platform, called Pedestal, assigns and tracks every task that is part of implementing a hosted EMS billing service. Those activities include the filing of all necessary payer registration paperwork, the creation of all business rules and patient communications required for a new client, setting up secure links between systems, software customization, and tracking claim status end-to-end. All are required elements to enable an EMS billing company to create and invoice the claims for ambulance transports carried out by the client.
"We've found the right EMS billing partner in Digitech," stated Jerry Kyle, Administrator for Greenbrier County Emergency Ambulance Service. "They have made the on-boarding process very easy for us, and have guided us through every step. Walt and the entire Digitech team have proven themselves to be very professional and very supportive. We look forward to the fulfillment of the business relationship we've launched here."
