NikoHealth’s latest innovation is improving the synergies between home medical equipment suppliers and funding sources.
In a Nov. 28 announcement, NikoHealth launched its Electronic Medical Attachments function, which the company said is “revolutionizing the way durable medical equipment (DME) suppliers interact with insurance payers.”
The “game-changing” new functionality “allows DME suppliers to submit essential attachments along with claims to property & casualty and commercial payers, ensuring a seamless and efficient claims process.”
Noting the importance of documentation to the home medical equipment funding process, NikoHealth said attachments such as medical records “provide crucial context for services rendered, allowing insurance payers to make informed decisions promptly.” The new Electronic Medical Attachments feature will enable suppliers to send the necessary documents directly to payers to streamline the funding process and facilitate timely, accurate payments.
Michael Kutsak, NikoHealth’s CEO, said in the announcement, “We are thrilled to introduce the Electronic Medical Attachments feature, underscoring our commitment to simplifying healthcare processes. This innovation not only enhances efficiency for DME suppliers, but also contributes to a more streamlined and accurate claims process, benefiting both providers and patients.”
The announcement added that NikoHealth “remains dedicated to working closely with payers to expand support and make this feature accessible to a broader range of users.”
The company provides all-in-one, cloud-based home medical equipment business process automation software that addresses billing and revenue cycle management, inventory, ordering, documents management, intelligent scheduling, analytics and reporting tools, and real-time insights for a “standout” user experience.
