Article Title: EDI and imaging automate the business office
Abstract: By implementing electronic remittance posting and imaging in patient accounting, New York's Memorial Sloan-Kettering Cancer Center was able to eliminate 22 full-time equivalent supervisory and staff positions and save $365,000 in physical space, microfilm, and media costs the first year the new system was operational. Memorial Sloan-Kettering currently is participating in a pilot program with its Medicare fiscal intermediary to determine how EDI can be used to manage claim-status information between payer and provider. By combining EDI, fax, and imaging technologies, Memorial Sloan-Kettering is making its patient accounting process more efficient and providing better service to its patients.
