me2me Partners with MedAptus
me2me, a software company delivering mobile dictation, transcription and speech recognition solutions, and MedAptus, a provider of charge capture technologies, today announced an agreement for mutual product distribution and integration.
The agreement enables MedAptus to integrate me2me's smartphone mobile dictation software into its charge capture and management solutions. me2me will also offer the MedAptus suite along with its complete Frisbee dictation and transcription product line through the me2me distribution network.
MedAptus' comprehensive charge capture and management application simplifies and streamlines professional fee coding and billing processes for both physicians and back-office support personnel. In addition to driving strong financial benefit, the adoption of MedAptus improves provider compliance adherence and yields overall productivity gains. The MedAptus technology is applicable to any setting of care with customers that include large academic practice plans and IDNs, mid-sized provider groups, and single specialty practices.
Integrating the Frisbee iPhone and BlackBerry mobile dictation offerings within MedAptus' charge capture solutions will allow MedAptus physician-users to complete coding and billing documentation and the related clinical documentation on one device, using a single sign-on and shared patient list. Provider access to demographic, diagnosis and procedure information during the dictation process will support fast and thorough documentation at the point-of-care or on-the-go.
me2me is currently in the midst of a comprehensive program to expand its presence in the United States. The company's Frisbee product suite includes a workstation-based offering that organizes the transcription and dictation processes for authors and transcriptionists by creating an avenue for sharing and organizing jobs, and a server-based offering that allows larger organizations to manage many transcription workflows from a single interface. The Frisbee solution incorporates speech recognition technology and integrates with a number of commercially available electronic medical records programs.
"We are very eager to bring the MedAptus charge capture suite to our customers and channel partners," said Peter Hauser, me2me's CEO. "Our early discussions in the marketplace have been well-received and confirm our mutual vision with MedAptus regarding the strength and complementarity of our solutions. Of course, we are also quite pleased to be working with a market leader like MedAptus as we establish a stronger presence in the United States."
"me2me's mobile dictation applications fit neatly into our existing solutions, and the broader Frisbee product line fits well with our efforts to integrate more effectively with the clinical documentation process. Our partnership with me2me will also help us accelerate our understanding of how new capabilities in speech recognition and natural language processing technologies can improve our solutions and the experiences of our clinical-users," said Larry Hagerty, MedAptus' president.
