What we offer:
Patient Data Capturing and verification
There are numerous ways in which your patient’s data can be captured, weather you are using a fill in paper form or online login application. We are able to adapt to use our custom system that your practice currently use.
Allow us to show you how new technology can make your patient data capturing more efficient & accurate. In essence our aim is to collect correctly captured data and verify the patient’s information. Bad hand writing, misspelled names and unreadable typography can leave you endlessly searching for patient’s correct data.
We are working on a patient login interface, where patients will record all their details to ensure the data is correct and verified. Our future development includes synchronization with Discovery ID application, where we scan the QR Code of the patient to obtain all the relevant details.
Working in a country riddled with corruption and theft, it is no exception that patient’s may give you a false identity. Therefore most billing solutions provide the option to verify the patient’s identity. Some patients may change medical aids or are no longer on a medical aid, to ensure you are paid this is a MUST HAVE for any outpatient practice.

Reconciliation of Remittances
A Remittance is a statement from each medical aid that states who and how much was paid by the medical aid in a given time. These payments from the medical aids must be checked and allocated to each patient. We double check that these payments add up to what the patient owes your practice, to be sure to follow up on patients where the payment from the medical aids were insufficient to cover your bill. Our system electronically allocates the medical aid payments to each patient and notify us of any shortfall.
Reconciliation of Bank Statements
EFT & card machine payments are checked and allocated to each patient. Access to your business bank account only as a secondary user are easy to set up with your bank. This allows us to retrieve bank statements as needed without being able to make any transaction on your account. We will reconcile your business bank statement for private and medical payments received. This is whats called account balancing between who already paid and who owes.
A Tariff code is the amount that the medical aid pays for that particular treatment code. These amounts vary among medical aids and change regularly. When an incorrect amount is claimed per tariff code, the medical aid will not pay, or result in the medical aid paying out to your patient. The billing program that we use has all the updated tariff codes per medical aid to ensure payment to you.
