MedAxiom Partners With pMD to Enhance Billing and Coding for Cardiovascular Care

pMD brings mobile charge capture and information sharing innovations to nation’s top CV organizations

October 2, 2017 — Cardiovascular healthcare membership organization and performance community MedAxiom announced its corporate partnership with pMD to help advance value-based cardiovascular healthcare. pMD is a healthcare technology provider that improves the physician experience and patient care through a platform focused on mobile charge capture and HIPAA-compliant information sharing.

“With over 5,500 physician users, many of whom are cardiologists, pMD is clearly a charge capture leader,” said Joseph Sasson, Ph.D. and vice president of MedAxiom. “Physicians using pMD are increasing their efficiency, ROI [return on investment] and quality of patient care in a time where reimbursement cuts, compliance regulations and other costs are impacting medical practices. But it goes beyond that. With the full extent of the technology and services pMD offers today, pMD streamlines the entire practice from point-of-care through reimbursement. This is exactly the kind of support our members are looking for.”

pMD’s mobile communication and data capture platform focuses on intuitive features for real-time charge capture. From effortless code search, to HIPAA-compliant text messaging, hospital and answering service integrations, and quality data capture, pMD works to enhance interoperability, reduce data entry and improve provider workflows. pMD also provides care coordination software services for the management and collaboration of patient care. This unified care coordination software system connects providers and caregivers across different organizations.

Cardiovascular practices across the nation benefit from pMD’s efficient rounding and patient handoff processes, interfacing capabilities, outpatient procedure schedule accessibility, and stress test and echo reads integration.

pMD physician clients and their staff benefit from extraordinary product support. Everyone at pMD, based in San Francisco, works to provide very specialized and personalized customer support — nothing is ever outsourced.

"As a cardiology practice, we know that our patients are high risk, and we want to give our doctors the best opportunity within regulatory requirements to cross their T's and dot their I's,” said Michelle Ruiz, director of business operations at Pima Heart. “pMD makes it easy for our coders to isolate Level 5 visits, complete a pre-audit and provide instant feedback to our doctors. This whole process occurs within the 30-day amendment period, so we can ask the doctors if they wish to amend their documentation and actually recover the extra revenue. In any manual process, you don't have this window of opportunity. pMD's real-time communication empowers our doctors to maximize revenue exactly where it falls short.”
