BERKELEY HEIGHTS, N.J., April 25, 2011 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Authentidate Holding Corp. (Nasdaq:ADAT), a provider of secure health information exchange, workflow management services and telehealth solutions, today announced that Superior Oxygen & Medical Equipment, a West Reading, PA based supplier of home medical equipment, Oxygen therapy and supplies, has implemented the web-based secure Inscrybe® Healthcare referral management solution to process care orders (referrals) electronically online. Inscrybe provides significant reductions in processing-time, simpler forms completion, and a unified information management and reporting interface.
Superior Oxygen maintains offices in Lancaster, PA near the Lancaster General Hospital, which is part of the Lancaster General Health System. As several key referring physicians in the area already use Inscrybe to initiate, complete and authorize referrals online, Superior Oxygen wanted to adopt the electronic communication of referrals and eSignature capability already available on the Inscrybe network of suppliers.
"The Inscrybe service enables us to communicate quickly and securely with our referring physicians. These electronic communications will support our primary goal of delivering unsurpassed patient service in line with the referring physician's orders for oxygen supplies and medical equipment," said Thomas Byerly, President of Superior Oxygen.
Inscrybe organizes and streamlines the processing of referrals for everyone involved, reducing the time needed to get the necessary paperwork completed and signed so that patients can get the medical equipment, oxygen therapy or supplies that they need. In addition, the completed documentation is immediately ready for suppliers to submit to health insurers for rapid reimbursement, providing a significant advantage over time-intensive paper management systems. Inscrybe enhances customer service, reduces processing costs and helps support quality patient care.
Marcus Wagstaff, National Sales Director for Authentidate, said, "We are confident that we can support Superior Oxygen's goals for timely and complete physician order processing. As a secure healthcare workflow service, Inscrybe is ideally suited to meet Superior Oxygen's present needs to streamline care order processing with their referring physicians and has the inherent ability to scale as their business grows in the future."
