ROSWELL, Ga.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--In many K-12 school districts, electronic health records (EHR) software and Medicaid billing services are provided by different companies. Frustrations arise when the systems can’t communicate, resulting in duplicate paperwork, errors, lost staff time and increased costs. To alleviate these issues and save schools time and money, Excent® Corp. and Professional Software for Nurses Inc. (PSNI) have partnered to provide an integrated solution for EHRs and Medicaid billing.
PSNI’s SNAP Health Center™ now seamlessly integrates with Excent Medicaid to streamline the Medicaid billing process for school districts. SNAP Health Center is a comprehensive EHR solution that gives school nurses the tools they need to manage every aspect of student health-related data. Now, when nurses chart health services in SNAP Health Center, billing data will automatically transfer to Excent Medicaid, which provides Medicaid billing tools and services to help schools accurately and efficiently bill for all school-based health services.
The automatic transfer of billing data from SNAP Health Center to Excent Medicaid will allow schools to increase their reimbursements and collect revenue faster, while reducing billing costs and relieving nurses of burdensome paperwork.
“Since 1998, Excent has helped school districts recover more than $100 million in Medicaid reimbursement funds,” said David Craig, president of Excent. “This partnership will simplify and streamline the Medicaid billing process in a secure, reliable and HIPAA- and FERPA-compliant environment. With SNAP Health Center and Excent Medicaid, districts can eliminate time-consuming documentation and administrative tasks, so nurses can spend more time caring for students.”
“School nurses don’t have time to log the same services in multiple applications. They need solutions to simplify their daily routines and automate their workflow,” said Tami Redes, vice president of sales for PSNI. “With SNAP Health Center, nurses can easily document student visits, medications, immunizations and screenings. And now, with integrated billing through Excent Medicaid, schools can recover revenue for these services without creating more work for nurses or billing staff.”
