Australia’s largest provider of radiation oncology, cardiology and sleep treatments, GenesisCare, has begun rolling out the PowerHealth Solutions’ enterprise-wide patient billing system, PowerBilling & Revenue Collection (PBRC), to each of its practices across Australia, as part of their future growth strategy.
GenesisCare currently provides essential health care services across more than 120 sites and clinics ranging from major capital cities to regional and rural centres.
The system has already been successfully implemented at Adelaide Radiotherapy Centre, and will be progressively rolled out across the GenesisCare network.
GenesisCare Project Manager Graham O’Connor said, "GenesisCare is committed to actively driving the delivery of advanced, high quality care for Australians and once this nation-wide implementation is complete, we will have an enterprise-wide system that provides consistent billing functionality that is more efficient to operate, benefiting our patients and the quality of service we provide."
The new system automates tasks that were previously performed manually. For example online claiming automates manual paperwork and achieves a much shorter revenue cycle. GenesisCare can now submit health fund claims instantly online instead of through postal mail. This speeds up the claim processing cycle from days/weeks to hours. PBRC will enable GenesisCare to standardise business processes across all our practices and improve analysis with more robust data, leading to more consistent management reporting and branding.
PowerHealth Solutions Project Director Evie Karagiannis said, "GenesisCare are a professional group who have been excellent to work with. The success of the first rollout can be attributed to their project team and stakeholder engagement along with their willingness to work together to deliver a billing solution that meets their needs."
