Wright & Filippis Implements Brightree’s Billing and Business Management Platform
Integrated platform helps one of the nation’s largest providers of prosthetics/ orthotics automate workflow, streamline collections and improve patient experience
ATLANTA – July 24, 2014 – Brightree®, the leading provider of cloud-based clinical, billing and business management software solutions for the post-acute care industry, announced today that Wright & Filippis, one of the nation’s largest family-owned providers of prosthetics, orthotics, custom mobility and accessibility products, has implemented Brightree as its billing and business management platform. Wright & Filippis implemented Brightree’s cloud-based solutions – including business management and document management solutions – to automate operational workflow, enhance financial performance and improve the overall patient experience.
“It was critical for us to find a strategic partner who not only listens to our market’s specific needs but also continuously invests in their solutions,” said A.J. Filippis, owner and CEO at Wright & Filippis. “Prior to Brightree, we were using multiple systems to access patient information. With Brightree, we have a proven, scalable and integrated platform that takes care of our billing, business management and regulatory needs, ultimately freeing up our staff’s time to focus on better serving our patients so that we can continue to expand our business.”
A Comprehensive Solution
Along with Brightree’s billing and business management solution, Wright & Filippis also will leverage other Brightree products, including electronic claims submission, document management, eligibility and electronic fax technologies. In many instances, providers run the risk of touching an order multiple times before it is delivered, billed and closed out with cash posted back to the system. With these products in place, however, Wright and Filippis is automating time-consuming and manual processes by leveraging capabilities such as intelligent business rules, tasks and alerts, and work in progress (WIP) states, resulting in streamlined workflow for enhanced referral relationships, increased regulatory compliance and maximized reimbursements. Brightree’s solutions also enable providers to spend less time getting bills out the door to insurance payers and more time on addressing their patients’ needs by:
Assigning work to individuals and groups;
Tracking outstanding work to measure productivity;
Storing clinical forms and other supporting documentation for real-time access; and
Leveraging a solution that helps meet regulatory compliance.
“We’re honored to partner with Wright & Filippis as they continue to make their mark as a leading provider in the healthcare industry,” said Dave Cormack, president and CEO of Brightree. “Hundreds of large organizations like Wright & Filippis rely on Brightree to continuously invest in our cloud-based solutions, giving access to innovative technologies that will help providers play a critical role in reducing our nation’s healthcare costs. Many enterprise-sized organizations have been investing millions in custom, home-grown systems, but are recognizing that they must instead focus on their core competencies on caring for patients and running operational processes.”
