Tuesday 6 January 2004 21:14 CET | News

bConnected Software and Cardtronic Technology have jointly announced the launch of bRTE, an automated solution for more cost-efficient health careadministration.

bRTE enables health care provider systems and health plans to use a single trackable transaction to obtain real-time patient eligibility, co-pay, and deductible data at the point of care, the announcement said. Cardtronics chip-enabled smart card provides an instant look at patient eligibility, deductibles, co-payments and prescription coverage options. The card can also automatically issue payment from Healthcare Reimbursement (HRA) or Flexible Spending (FSA) accounts. bConnected adds secure audit trail capabilities to these transactions and delivers accurate, timely revenue forecasts to providers, as well as critical disease management data to health plans. Automating processes through secure technologies can dramatically reduce costs for payers and providers by eliminating the need for phone queries, and computerizing other manual tasks linked to membership, eligibility and payment, according to the announcement. The fully integrated solution delivers real-time membership and eligibility data to the providers desktop, and enables patients to pay for healthcare at the time of service by deducting fees directly from their HRA, FSA, or any other account they designate.
