A branch of the health care industry has caught on to the benefit of integrating Sertifi’s electronic signature solution into their existing billing systems.
In June, Sertifi signed on Horizon Healthware as a reseller of its esignature software. Horizon is based out of Raleigh, N.C. and markets billing and electronic medical records systems within the home health care and hospice community.
A month after becoming a reseller, Horizon has signed on four Sertifi users, including Home Care Health Services in Kentucky.
Hamilton Temple, Sertifi’s sales director, oversees the health care market segment. A great deal of paperwork is generated prior to reaching the billing system that must be printed, faxed and signed. Sertifi automates home health agencies by enabling them to quickly capture esignatures.
Home health agencies use EMR to manage patient information and bill clients. Horizon will offer electronic signatures as an extension of that process.
Example: an agency providing nursing service in a Medicare patient’s home requires a doctor’s signed care plan.
“The process for these home health agencies has been input information into the billing system and bill Medicare electronically, but drop off a piece of paper for the physician to sign,” Temple says. “Sertifi enables agencies to automate that archaic step.”
Yvonna Fields, vice president of administration for Home Care Health Services, says the company was drawn to the Sertifi solution for its ability to automate the complex medical order workflow. Staff was trained and the system was operational in one day.
“After using the service for six months, we have demonstrated that our referring physicians who order our home care services have eliminated the enormous paper process we had previously burdened them with,” Fields says. “Sertifi has helped us improve our efficiency, accuracy and re-work while reducing paper management and related overhead costs.”
