Unified Patient Platform
ASG’s sister firm Medpsych Health Services (MPHS), which is an Outpatient Mental Health Clinic (OMHC) that provides services for patients who have Medicare Part A, B services, Medicaid OMHC, Tricare, ChampVA, and private insurance companies. MPHS has 16 clinical practitioners providing mental health management, psychotherapy, addiction and group therapy.
Scheduling appointments posed to be a challenge due to the sensitive nature of patients and their unplanned needs for services.
ASG’s IT operations team created a unified patient platform to improve patient’s access to care and health materials that assist in preventative health care. In addition, ASG’s offices are collocated with our jointly owned clinic, which affords ASG to have a platform to validate research of various solutions that can be applied in a working healthcare setting.
Healthcare Claims Management
The Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) wanted a centralized system to process and pay the 13 million annual claims for medical services provided to veterans and their families.
ASG built a centralized interface which enabled the VA’s business office to improve its payment accuracy and timeliness without requiring the involvement of the VA’s Office of Information Technology. ASG managed the lifecycle of the process, including testing and analyzing the software prior to rollout to ensure successful deployment.
The VA now able to use centralized technical and management resources to support all directorates in the use of automated business rules management systems. This means the department can provide fraud, waste and abuse detection, automated claims processing and policy adjudication without human intervention.
Medpsych Health Services (MPHS) required a client scheduling system that would process claims across a broad range of insurance providers while protecting its patients’ privacy.
ASG built a single portal for schedulers to see a patient’s preferred appointment date and time, along with service provider availability. ASG then expanded the portal to enable web-based scheduling and tele-health services.
Medpsych is providing its patients improved access to mental health treatment and preventative care. The ASG-designed solution created open-source content management and e-learning options for both clients and health care contact representatives.
