1. How does your service work?
Billing Service Solution
All you need to do is send us your work, either by scanning
and uploading it to us, or by mailing it, or by having
us pick it up. All your patient billing and payment data
is available in Real-Time on our web site at www.claimpower.com.
The web site completely exposes our service. You can see
all the work as it is done, including statuses, notes
and any missing information that needs your attention.
You can also run all commonly used practice management
reports from the web site.
During the day you scan your Encounter forms, Hospital
Face Sheets, Patient registration sheets, EOBS, etc. At
the end of your day, you run the Shutdown routine in the
software. This automatically sends your scanned documents,
and your database to our secure server. During the overnight
hours, we use your scanned documents and your database
for the data entry and to perform our services. The data
is sent back to our secure server, around 8AM. When you
start up in the morning, you run the Startup routine in
the software. This updates your database with all the
work done by us overnight.

3. Can data from my existing software be transferred and
This depends on how your existing software handles data
exports. If your software can export all its data to an

formats at a small additional cost to you. If this cannot
happen, but your existing software can print reports of
patient demographics and Receivables, we can manually
enter it into our database. Please call us to discuss
your particular situation.
