Enhanced software saves time for providers
Philips Respironics’ enhanced medSage version 3.0 obstructive sleep apnea (OSA) patient management and resupply solution reduces by half the number of steps and time needed to perform functions such as adding and viewing comments, patient searching, finding and editing reorders, and resolving patient notifications. The Web-based service features automated eligibility determination and customizable patient call scripts designed to assist with reimbursement documentation. It also allows for the patient’s preferred method of communication such as pre-recorded voice recognition surveys, email, live calls or after-hours hotline with fulfillment service providers.
