A Massachusetts-based company reports a successful start in its effort to help small to medium sized medical practices in the US increase new patients by using its referral software.
North Dartmouth, MA (PRWEB) March 09, 2013
Officials with Emerald Health announced today that several small to mid-sized medical practices that took advantage of its trial referral software have reported positive results.
Sanjay Gupta, spokesman for Emerald Health, a service company that specializes in providing medical billing and software services to medical practices in the United States, said the company, in December 2012, signed up customers for a trial of its new EHE software, which enables primary care physicians to send patient referrals electronically to specialist physicians.
“It has been two months since medical practices started signing up for our trial and so far, the results have been great for those who took advantage of our offer,” Gupta stressed.
The software called Emerald Health Exchange (EHE), according to Gupta, is a cloud based software solution that helps physicians communicate with other physicians who are part of EHE.
“Most people know and understand that a high percentage of all business come from referrals, and with our software, doctors, physicians, medical practice administrators, and managers are now able to streamline the process of sending or receiving referrals,” Gupta explained, before adding, “We´re extremely excited about this product because we can honestly and confidently say that there are not too many companies in the US who offer this type of product/service, which can save a typical physician a lot of money per month.”
The reported savings that medical practices who took advantage of Emerald Health´s trial, according to Gupta, have been achieved by the software´s ability to streamline the physician referral process while eliminating paperwork.
“Emerald Health Exchange allows physicians to save time by eliminating unnecessary paperwork, phone calls, faxing, and printing, saving money in the process,” Gupta said. “Referrals are sent and received in a matter of seconds, and logged online afterward for review.”
The company spokesman went on to point out that when the trial began in December, 2012, approximately 20 companies enrolled into the alpha or beta testing phase of the product.
“The trial has been a success, which is great news for us and the medical industry as a whole, because companies are four times more likely to add new customers or patients when referred by a friend,” Gupta said. “Our product makes this process quick and easy. Now medical companies, physicians, and administrators can tap into and capitalize on the 59 percent of people who, according to research, say that a driving force in their decision is based on word of mouth.”
