Through this partnership, DentalXChange is now supporting dental EDI services from claim submissions and real-time transactions, to the delivery of ERA’s electronically.

“By moving all of its EDI services to DentalXChange, NCDR has been able to improve its processes and reduce its operational costs, reaching an overall higher level of processing success,” explained Le Ann Eyres-Morris, Director of Channel Partners for DentalXChange.

We are very happy to have the opportunity to assist Kool Smiles and Resolution Dental in reaching their EDI and claim processing goals. Our relationships with our payer partners help drive the success of this unique implementation!”

After an analysis of their EDI and business processes, NCDR chose to migrate from a direct-connect model and move their claim and ERA transactions to DentalXChange, according to Eyres-Morris.

This change is indicative of a new direction in the industry, according to Scott Wellwood, President of DentalXChange.

“The industry is changing, and many companies are looking for strategic ways to reduce operational costs while continuing to provide exceptional service,” Wellwood noted.  “We are pleased that we have the opportunity to assist NCDR in improving its EDI delivery, and we anticipate that this partnership will continue for many years with great success.”

Damon Dunsmore, Manager of EDI and Integrations for NCDR, led the implementation, and noted “NCDR conducted an extensive selection process in order to identify the right partner, and DentalXChange emerged as the clear choice.  We implemented DentalXChange’s services in April and today, we couldn’t be happier with that decision,” Dunsmore explained.  “I have been working in EDI for over 10 years, and this has been the easiest implementation I’ve experienced.”

Dunsmore noted that the DentalXChange Account Management team was extremely efficient in driving the implementation which brought comfort in moving the remaining volume this July supporting a complete implementation in less than 120 days.

“The whole organization really seems to strive to ensure the customer is happy,” he said.  “I truly feel that we are business partners in the most literal sense of the word.”

According to Dunsmore, DentalXChange is a natural partner for NCDR, as the two companies’ visions are well-aligned.

“Both DentalXChange and NCDR are committed to using technology to provide high quality, affordable, health care reimbursement processes through secure, electronic transactions,” he said.

Through completion of the rigorous accreditation process, DentalXChange demonstrates to its constituents, adherence to strict standards and participation in the comprehensive, objective evaluation of its business.

“At a time of heightened regulatory concerns, it is responsible healthcare organizations such as DentalXChange that we applaud for taking the extra steps to ensure trust with all their stakeholders and customers that they’re adhering to the latest standards in privacy, security and confidentiality,” says Lee Barrett, executive director of EHNAC. “In order to earn EHNAC HNAP accreditation, organizations are required to demonstrate excellence and a commitment to ensuring the security and privacy of health data processing and transactions for their customers.”

DentalXChange has been supporting dental providers for more than two decades through its web-based EDI solutions, designed to streamline the connection between providers, payers and patients.
