CareStack, a cloud-based technology platform for the dental industry, today announced it has partnered with DentalXChange, the creator of industry-leading electronic claims solution, ClaimConnect, to allow CareStack dental practice customers to increase electronic claim processing, reduce manual work, expedite credentialing, and improve operational efficiencies. CareStack will leverage DentalXChange’s ClaimConnect solution as part of CareStack’s comprehensive cloud-based enterprise practice management platform that over 500 dental offices currently use to manage their clinical, financial, and administrative workflows.
“With less than 20 percent of dental practices in the cloud today the technology needs of the dental industry have been traditionally served by fragmented service providers and antiquated solutions to meet its unique revenue cycle management needs,” said Abhi Krishna, CEO of CareStack. “We are excited to partner with DentalXChange and leverage their industry leading electronic data interchange (EDI) and credentialing solutions that will now allow our network of dental practices to better automate their operational processes, reduce paperwork and costs, and enhance their overall electronic connectivity with key stakeholders in the revenue cycle process.”
CareStack’s cloud-based enterprise platform delivers a combined practice management, patient engagement, analytics, and revenue cycle management service which allows customers to better understand their business operations. To enable its dental practice customers to keep pace with evolving reimbursement models and need for greater patient engagement, CareStack continues to introduce new capabilities that combines automation and analytics which are core to increasing the operational efficiencies of its customers. DentalXChange’s solution will allow CareStack to quickly improve its dental practice network’s connectivity with patients, payers, and employers.
“We are excited to join with CareStack and support its rapidly growing dental practice network with our ClaimConnect solution that will allow its customers to gain greater control of their operations,” said LeAnn Morris, Vice President of Business Development for DentalXChange.
“DentalXChange is best known for our industry leading on-line services available via our ClaimConnect portals. As a leader in Co-branding ClaimConnect for payers, providers have been using this application for years so CareStack providers will already be familiar with it. The very nature of these tools lends themselves perfectly to advanced cloud-based platforms like CareStack. The synergies between our products will enable practices to gain efficiencies across the revenue cycle landscape. By integrating claims, attachments, real-time services and now provider credentialing using our DDS Enroll service, CareStack clients will be able to reduce administrative overhead and spend more time growing their businesses. We are excited about the opportunities that lie ahead.” said Scott Wellwood, President of DentalXChange.
