  SALT LAKE CITY, UT, Nov 19 (Marketwire) -- 
ADP(R) AdvancedMD, a leader in all-in-one, cloud electronic health record
(EHR), practice management, and medical scheduling software as well as
medical billing services, today announced new charge capture
functionality for the ADP AdvancedMD iPad(R) app. Hundreds of medical
practices already use the ADP AdvancedMD iPad app, released last quarter.
Now physicians can use the app for charge entry instead of tedious
paper-based processes, saving time and minimizing missed charges. 

    AdvancedMD charge capture is supported on all versions of the iPad,
including the iPad mini. Now that devices are small enough to fit into a
lab coat pocket, physician freedom and mobility are greatly enhanced. The
AdvancedMD charge capture app is particularly powerful for physicians
working at secondary sites such as clinics and hospitals, as every
additional site raises the risk of a paper charge entering the billing
system late, or being missed completely -- at a cost of $200-400 per
patient charge. 

    The new functionality for the iPad is designed to help physicians focus
on patient care, and not on trying to track procedure code details. The
charge capture feature also is aimed at helping to further streamline
workflow and reduce days in accounts receivable (A/R), with the ADP
AdvancedMD cloud allowing for anytime, anywhere access.

    "Since our iPad app launch in July, we've seen a phenomenal response from
physicians," said Raul Villar, president, ADP AdvancedMD. "That's why we
have committed so much ongoing R&D to this platform, and why we developed
what we believe is the best, fastest and easiest iPad charge slip entry
in the industry." 

    "The traditional paper-based multi-step process for mobile physicians to
keep track of procedures is riddled with potential risk -- from pocketed
notes to typos; the app can take this stress and time sink out of the
system," said Steven ZoBell, vice president of product development, ADP
AdvancedMD. "The entire charge capture can be completed in about ten
seconds on the iPad or iPad mini -- by navigating to patient name, charge
capture tab and touching the completed procedures on the screen."

    "Charge capture on the iPad gives me a simplified way to reduce steps and
ultimately save time," said Lara Bruneau, MD. "The review bin helps me
reduce clicks so now all my charges are completed while I see patients
and I'm able to go home half an hour earlier. Billing includes more
detail and modifiers than I've had before. I'm now coding properly from
the start, which means cleaner claims submissions and faster
reimbursement."

    The ADP AdvancedMD app for the iPad with charge capture functionality is
available free of charge with an ADP AdvancedMD subscription. Charge
capture on the iPad automatically brings up procedure codes with the name
of the procedures and features an optional review bin checklist which
provides physicians with a powerful way to keep track of outstanding
charges to ensure no charges are missed. The app also provides for
automatic demographic population into the charge slip, the ability to add
procedures and diagnosis codes by touch, and the capability to reorder a
charge slip, change units and add modifiers.
