2017 in Review with Scott Wellwood

Scott Wellwood, President of DentalXChange

I can honestly say that 2017 was one of the most eventful in our history. While we have faced many challenges, I am so proud of the way our entire Team has faced them head on, and converted them into opportunities for both personal and company growth.

Throughout the year, our focus has been to broaden the scope of our offerings to all of our stakeholders. We have continued to reduce our dependency on outside entities in some areas, while entering into strategic partnerships where it made sense.

Noteworthy developments include:

  • We have exceeded our forecasted growth in both claims and real-time transactions
  • Print claims have been reduced to an all-time low of less than 4%, facilitated by new EDI relationships with numerous payers large and small
  • Launch of our own Attachment service has rolled out extremely smoothly, with connections to most of our major Payer Partners contracted and in place
  • Launch of our DDS Enroll Credentialing services for both Providers and Payers, including a co-branded Payer portal for Delta Dental of Colorado
  • Rollout of a new DMD service improving functionality and accuracy
  • Expansion of our Merchant Services capabilities including:
    • EMV/FSA/HSA reprograming and implementation
    • PCI, EHNAC, and other security re-certifications
    • Improved Vendor integration with our Practice Management Partners
  • Production and deployment of Training videos for both internal and external audiences
  • Expansion of our Mailroom Services, allowing a Payer to completely outsource the processing of incoming paper claims and other documents, becoming 100% EDI

I truly feel we are uniquely positioned to have a fantastic 2018 and thank you all for your past and ongoing contributions to our success.

DentalXChange at CDA Presents Anaheim, May 4-6 2017

We could not be more excited to attend CDA Presents Anaheim 2017. We are always excited to see old friend and make new ones, but this year we have something BIG to share with all of you.

The release of our new Attachment Service for ClaimConnect!

Our new service will save hundreds of hours by allowing dental providers to attach supporting documents (e.g. x-rays, periodontal charts, EOBs, narratives) that may be required by an insurance company to adjudicate a claim, directly through your ClaimConnect account.

Now, we have a single software system for creating claims and attaching documents, resulting in improved efficiency for both providers and payers.

Features include:

  • System Notifications

Alerts notify the user when an attachment is required, increasing speed and reducing errors on the provider’s side, which it-turn decreases follow-up time with insurance companies.

  • Optimized Image Tools

DentalXChange’s attachment software offers highly functional image tools including high-quality image resolution, and the ability to rotate, zoom, and change image brightness and contrast to better examine attachments.

  • Fully Customizable Platform

The attachment service can be customized and integrated into Practice Management Systems, giving providers the flexibility to personalize the software to their needs.

  • Secure Archive

Payers and providers can view submitted claims and attachments in a secure online archive at any time.

  • Low Cost, Contract-Free Structure

DentalXChange’s attachment service does not require a contract. Payers and providers have the flexibility to sign up for the service on a monthly basis. While many attachment services charge users upwards of $450 annually, DentalXChange offers its attachment service at a price of $25 per month ($300 annual).

All of our innovative products and services have been designed to help dentists run their practice in a more efficient and cost effective manner. Our services are so renowned that the California Dental Association has endorsed us for 6 straight years!

 

Our booth will be located at #703. Visitors can find out how much time and money they can save by switching from paper to EDI. Plus, when you sign up for one of our paid services at the convention, we’ll give you a 19” Disney character plush toy. The perfect souvenir from Anaheim, California!

 

Snapper Chomp

We will feature some other cool giveaways like Snapper plush dolls, Snapper Chomps, DentalXChange note pads and DentalXChange pens.

 

 

If you are a current client, come by, meet our staff and get a Snapper pin to show how much you love our services. So if you are coming to CDA Presents Anaheim, download the CDA app, find our booths, stop by and say hi!

DentalXChange Selected To Provide All Payer Portal For Humana

DentalXChange has announced a partnership with Humana Inc. (NYSE: HUM) to launch a co-branded online portal supporting electronic data interchange (EDI) for the dental community.

Better Solutions for your Practice!

DentalXChange has designed and will operate the insurance company’s All Payer Dental Portal, allowing Humana’s dental providers to securely file insurance claims and conduct insurance-related transactions.

Scott Wellwood

“Our goal in supporting Humana’s All Payer Portal is to improve utilization management and increase administratice efficiencies” Scott Wellwood 

“Our goal in supporting Humana’s All Payer Portal is to improve utilization management and increase administrative efficiencies for providers,” explained Scott Wellwood, President of DentalXChange. “By increasing the speed at which providers of dental care can gather and utilize insurance information, we will be helping to improve the overall healthcare experience for patients, while accelerating revenue cycles for each of Humana’s dental providers.”

Through the portal, providers will have the opportunity to interact more directly with Humana, completing all dental EDI transactions at reduced or no cost. Features include the submission of claims and predeterminations, checking patient eligibility and benefits, obtaining the status of claims and receiving remittance information to balance claim payments. Transactions can be conducted directly on ClaimConnect or through integration with popular dental software programs.

“Humana is one of the nation’s leading health and well-being companies,” Wellwood said. “We look forward to working with Humana to further streamline the company’s EDI processes and reduce costs for their providers.”

“DentalXChange’s EDI tools will help empower Humana’s dental providers with the ability to eliminate paper and manage their entire revenue cycle, from eligibility verification before a patient’s visit, through the receipt of the electronic remittance advice and payment,” he added.

USPS to Raise Postage, AGAIN! Or, Why DentalXChange Lowered the Price of E-Delivered Statements.

It’s happening again.

As of May 31st, the USPS is increasing the price of postage. Every year the price goes up and this year is no exception. Unfortunately, due to this rise in cost, the delivery of our paper statements will increase from .75¢ to .76¢ per statement.

But we’re not taking this increase sitting down!

To help offset the post office price gouging and to encourage the switch from paper to EDI, DentalXChange will be lowering the cost of our e-delivery statement service from $0.49 to $0.37 per statement!

 That’s .39¢ less than a mailed statement!

To put that in context:

Switching_EPat[1]Let’s say you average 8 patients a day, 5 days a week. At the end of the month you are sending out 160 patient statements. That comes out to $121.60 in postage alone. Now, throw in the cost of printing and paper. Oh, and you have to pay an employee to stuff envelops. Doesn’t anyone remember how George Costanza’s fiancé died?!

E-Patient Statements electronic delivery is safe, fast, easy and now more affordable than ever. Those 160 statements can be e-mailed to your patients, saving you the cost of postage, printing, employee time and those dreaded envelops. Couple E-Patient Statements with PayConnect and you’ll be able to collect payment online!

This helps you get paid FASTER!

So to re-cap, we are lowering the price on our E-delivery service, making it easier for patients to pay you for services rendered and hopefully saving lives from toxic adhesive. This is a perfect opportunity to take advantage of this cost-savings option and not get squeezed by the USPS.

Take THAT post office!

To learn more about E-Patient Statements, PayConnect and how much money you can save, call us at (800) 576-6412 ext. 455 or visit www.dentalxchange.com
