Iconic Data Launches Secure Mobile Solution to Replace Paper-Based Physician Billing Process(February 28, 2012)
CHICAGO, Feb. 28, 2012 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Iconic Data, the healthcare IT startup that provides healthcare professionals with secure mobile technology solutions to improve productivity, profitability and patient safety, today announced the launch of ICON™, its flagship offering that replaces inefficient paper-based physician billing cards and forms.
ICON™ is a secure and encrypted digital physician billing card solution that helps physicians more efficiently and accurately manage the patients they care for across one or more facilities. It allows for secure access to critical data and billing information from any device with Internet access. The elimination of the paper-based process streamlines workflow and makes patient sign-outs safer and more convenient.
"Sixty-two percent of US physicians care for patients in both their offices and in one or more hospitals. Billing information from hospitals is siloed and does not flow to the physician's practice, so physicians must manually collect data needed by their practice's billing personnel. This manual, paper-based process often results in lost charges and inefficiencies," said David LaBorde, CEO and co-founder of Iconic Data. "Our mobile solution fills a critical gap among information systems and enables physicians to better care for their patients, prevent medical errors and accelerate practice cash flow by an average of 14 days."
The cloud-based, digital billing card solution is accessible via any web-enabled device including iPhone, iPad, BlackBerry, and Android platforms. There are two versions of the product. Basic ICON™ is $19 per month and includes patient list management, automated case log data collection and 24/7 tech support. Premium ICON™ is $99 per month and includes all of the Basic offerings plus charge capture and claims reconciliation. The company is offering a 30-day free trial.
