Expanded partnership to automate medical claims allowing practices to focus more on patient care and less on billing.

Jersey City, NJ – February 23, 2016 – ITelagen, an IT Support and Hosting service for healthcare providers and practices, announced today an expanded partnership with NextGen Healthcare to market NextGen® Electronic Data Interchange (EDI), an integrated solution offering that accelerates patient collections and claims processed right the first time. NextGen EDI offers a topline clearinghouse to help submit claims electronically and receive electronic remittance advices for payment processing. For providers and practices, this means saving time and money, utilizing an end to end solution and getting paid faster. Under the agreement, ITelagen will market the current IT and EHR Support and Hosting services packaged with NextGen EDI to new and prospective clients.

ITelagen will continue to provide integrated solutions, implementation, hosting, and support as part of the packages offered. “Packaging our support and services with NextGen EDI is going to only further our goal of ensuring physicians continue to provide the highest quality patient experience by focusing on the patient and leaving all other technology details to us,” said David Ulrich, EVP of ITelagen.

According to ITelagen, this provides medical practices with a full-spectrum platform that automates claim submission and is accurate, efficient, and streamlined for claims reimbursement. “We are excited to integrate the NextGen EDI solutions into our support and services package for medical practices. This marriage of offerings is only going to enhance our “one –stop shop package for EHR” and is a must have for any NextGen practice”, says John O’Keefe, Chief Executive Officer of ITelagen.

Additionally, ITelagen maintains a data center that is SSAE16/SOC Type II certified, an international auditing standard governed by information technology and process controls. ITelagen is a cloud-based technology support IT service that monitors and hosts infrastructures for the healthcare, financial, and small business industries. The service provides onsite and remote technical support, manages EHRs to organize medical records and bills, coordinates and submits medical claims and insurance collections, and allows medical staff to send scripts online.

The staff of ITelagen is composed of security engineers, computer technicians, certified network administrators, and more to support infrastructures at a fraction of the cost of an in-house IT team.
