COLUMBIA, S.C., May 7 /PRNewswire/ -- Companion Technologies will demonstrate the specially designed anesthesia module of its new medical practice management system, Companion PM, at the annual meeting of the Medical Group Management Association (MGMA) anesthesia administrators May 23-25 in San Francisco.
Companion PM is an A/R billing and reporting, collections, patient master, claims processing, and appointment scheduling system.
The anesthesia specialty module incorporates detailed anesthesia case information with the ability to track contracted rates. Because it is fully integrated with the core module, the anesthesia module complies with anesthesia industry standards and calculates appropriate billing charge amounts based on time, risk and standard base units.
Companion PM is the result of reengineering of the company's previous practice management software, MegaWest. Distinguishing characteristics include its scalability and modular design, allowing it to be tailored to a practice's exact needs. It also uses tools that are SQL, HL7 and ODBC compliant, giving it flexible system architecture. Its operating system and platform independence enable practices to use their existing hardware, and its IBM relational database gives practices reporting capabilities not found in other systems.
Companion Technologies' product line also includes electronic medical records Companion EMR and hospital claims system Companion EnterprisEDI.
Companion Technologies ( http://www.companiontechnologies.com/ ) has aligned with leading industry vendors, including IBM and Sun Microsystems, to deliver healthcare data management services to its clients. Based in Columbia, S.C., Companion Technologies provides physician practices with financial, clinical, operational and managed care information management solutions.
