ZirMed Partners with EyeFormatics to Provide Integrated Revenue Cycle Management Technology for Eye Care Professionals
Louisville, KY – April 15, 2014
ZirMed®, a leading health information connectivity and management solutions company, today announced it has partnered with EyeFormatics, an electronic medical record (EMR) system provider for eye care professionals. Under the terms of this agreement, EyeFormatics will bundle ZirMed’s core revenue cycle management (RCM) solutions within the EyeFormatics EMR system to enable eye care professionals to streamline claims submission and boost patient payments within an integrated EMR and RCM solution.
EyeFormatics users will now have access to ZirMed’s core solutions, including Patient Statements, ZirMed’s web-based patient billing platform, and Patient Payments, the company’s secure payment transaction terminal. Users will also have the option to also add on other ZirMed solutions, such as Patient Estimation, a tool that calculates an upfront payment estimation prior to a patient’s appointment, and ZirMed Analytics, which provides insight into the practice’s operational and financial performance.
“We’re excited to partner with EyeFormatics to expand our services to the ophthalmology space,” said Tom Butts, CEO, ZirMed. “With this integration, EyeFormatics users can have an all-in-one solution with the support of ZirMed’s massive network of providers, patients and payers.”
“Eye care professionals, like many specialties, have a unique set of needs from a clinical perspective, but from an operational standpoint, they have the same challenges that all physician practices do,” said Chris Magoun, National Sales Director at EyeFormatics. “We’re excited to partner with ZirMed to add the company’s robust RCM and analytics solutions to our platform so that our clients are able to reduce time spent collecting money and refocus their time on delivering quality care to their patients.”
ZirMed leverages its national database of healthcare payment information to cure administrative burdens and increase financial performance. ZirMed’s solutions aggregate and leverage data from across its national network of payers, providers and patients to facilitate, manage, and analyze clinical and financial communications among providers, payers, and patients and drive patient engagement. ZirMed solutions include clinical connectivity solutions, comprehensive analytics, eligibility verification, online payment, credit/debit card processing, claims management, coding compliancy and reimbursement management, electronic remittance advice, patient statements, patient estimation, patient e-commerce solutions and lockbox services.
EyeFormatics was founded on the idea that modern information technologies have an enormous potential to simplify and streamline clinical practice for eye professionals. Most medical practices are far behind in using information technologies that could radically improve their ability to efficiently care for patients, decrease risk, and generate revenue. EyeFormatics seeks to change that by helping physicians to implement the easiest, most efficient, and most secure EMR system in the industry.
