|ANAHEIM HILLS, Calif. -- CERECONS, a leading provider of health information management solutions, announced today that its flagship software solution was named a "Best in Class" award winner in the "Enabling Technologies" category by the Microsoft Healthcare Users Group (MS-HUG). The annual awards recognize breakthrough contributions made by healthcare organizations to drive efficiencies across the healthcare system, ultimately containing costs and improving the quality of patient care.
"We are honored to accept this award from Microsoft and MS-HUG," said Philip Paul, chief executive officer of Unlimited Innovations Inc." This award recognizes our ability to provide the most innovative yet easy-to-use technology solutions for the healthcare industry. By increasing the efficiency of healthcare delivery throughout the care chain, greater attention is devoted to patient care."
A single medical transaction -- from initial medical visit to referral to insurance payment for services -- involves multiple parties. Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA) regulations and payor-specific claim-approval provisions, which involve considerable paperwork, faxing and phone calls, also must be considered. The CERECONS solution enables patients, healthcare providers, medical groups and hospitals to perform seamlessly electronic healthcare transactions in a safe and secure environment. It also allows medical care providers to spend less time on administrative paperwork and more time on quality-of-care issues.
The CERECONS solution integrates with clients' existing information management systems to provide on-demand information and reporting via Internet Explorer and other readily available programs in Microsoft Office XP or Office 2003 such as MS Excel, while leveraging their initial investment.
"CERECONS clearly demonstrates value by facilitating community-wide healthcare coordination," said Hao Wang, senior director of information technology at Fallon Community Health Plan, chief information officer of SAFE Health, a regional health information organization, and a 2006 MS-HUG official judge. "The CERECONS platform, based on the latest Microsoft technologies, presents actionable information in a user-friendly interface that helps unclog the clutter of traditional healthcare information management protocols."
