Seattle, WA - Paperless Productivity®, an industry leader in OCR-based claims form automation, is going to market with version 9.0 of its best-in-class solution for claim reimbursement data entry. This release builds on the decade-long success of its CMS forms processing software by incorporating recent changes to CMS documents and exploiting cutting-edge software advances.
"We're excited to offer such a comprehensive update that makes this a no-brainer for organizations watching their revenue cycles suffer as they get buried in CMS-1500 [previously HCFA-1500] forms, UB-04 forms, and all sorts of other paper claims," says Shamel Naguib, President of Paperless Productivity.
"It's also been thrilling to push the technical boundaries of how OCR [optical character recognition] software could get even more efficient at eliminating hand keying and errors, speeding up EDI 837 conversion and CMS reimbursement timeframes, and automatically reconciling line items. Between these priorities and the CMS form updates, it was the right time to bring claims data capture to the next level."
Mr. Naguib adds that version 9.0 should allow most automation scenarios to go live after three to six weeks of implementation work, and that typical clients should anticipate a positive ROI between six and twelve months thereafter.
The latest CMS-1500 form contains a plethora of changes to accommodate ICD-10 codes and to ensure alignment with the EDI 837 transaction set (a digital counterpart to the CMS-1500 form). In addition, the form reflects numerous smaller updates to ID marks, naming conventions, and other formatting features. Version 9.0 also introduces key technical features for resource monitoring, exception handling, and workflow integration.

Before adopting ABBYY FlexiCapture, German transportation and logistics firm Rhenus had a problem that is common in its industry. Incoming documents were numerous in both count and variety, coming from hundreds of sites spread across dozens of countries, which led to a costly processing burden. Rhenus responded by opening a shared services center to centralize document [...]

For Luz del Sur, an electricity distributor in the Peruvian capital of Lima, a sudden government demand created an unexpected data capture burden. To improve contributions records for the National Housing Fund, the state demanded that Luz del Sur and many other companies submit digital data from every single payslip issued between 1979 and 1998. The [...]
It's tough even to imagine more paper-intensive work than that of LA-based law firm Kantor & Kantor. As insurance claims specialists, they routinely see individual files numbering well into the thousands of pages. Perhaps more importantly, they must often peruse entire sets of documentation to find tiny yet critical pieces of information--which can determine someone's [...]

If there's any downside to becoming nationally renowned library, it's the practical challenge of making such a volume of information quickly and easily accessible. That's exactly what the National Assembly Library (NAL) of Korea discovered this during its five-decade expansion from a legislative repository into a landmark institution. With a rather staggering 160 million pages of [...]
Invoices were a nagging problem at an otherwise highly efficient hospital in Singapore. Like most hospitals there, it provided excellent care despite the country's high ratio of citizens per doctor. The hospital served a disproportionately large number of patients, which also meant a large number of vendor invoices. Its Accounts Payable department handled about 2,000 per [...]
