Freedom Imaging Systems Announces FreeScanNet

Ann Arbor, Michigan - December 17, 2010 - Freedom Imaging Systems is pleased to announce a new module - FreeScanNet - for its popular electronic content management software, RICAR (Record Image Capture And Retrieval).

FreeScanNet allows Freedom's customers the option of scanning directly to their billing centers from their clients location without setting up cumbersome and often finicky VPN connections. Using secure FTP connections, clients can scan at their locations and transfer the scanned images to their billing centers across town or across the country in a matter of minutes. The billing centers using Freedom's RICAR Workflow module FreeWf, can begin processing the documents within minutes of the image transfer.

The benefits of FreeScanNet far outweigh the modest cost of the module. Not only does it eliminate shipping costs and potential document loss, it has the attractive added benefit (and the ultimate goal of all billing centers) of improving revenue cycle management and decreasing days sales outstanding.

FreeScanNet is the newest of Freedom's methods for capturing data for billing and processing. Other methods include:

  • Simple drag and drop. Clients can drag and drop documents in any format (pdf, tiff, word, excel.) to an import folder shortcut on their workstation.
  • Direct HL7 Input. Working with the customer, Freedom can tailor its HL7 importer to the exact requirements of the HL7 file, automate indexing and merge the data with associated Requisitions.
  • Direct ERA/835 processing. Again, working with the customer, Freedom can tailor its FreeX12 processor for direct input of 835 files to parse them into patient centric fully indexed images complete with glossary of denial and reason codes. FreeX12 also produces a fully searchable 835 batch image.
  • Direct Demographic files. Customers can send demographic files from LIS and other systems directly to Freedom's RICAR software for automatic indexing, routing and processing.
