MEDENT customers expect breakthrough innovation and solutions that continuously propel your operations forward. RevSpring shares those key values. That’s why your MEDENT Hub includes a monthly look at what we call “hot ideas” – information that empowers you to know more, manage better, and engage in more meaningful ways with your customers.
Are your patients feeling burdened with the time spent filling out paperwork?
Do you find many errors as a result of manual paperwork processes? You aren’t alone.
Healthcare information errors are a leading cause of insurance claim denials. A major study in 2022 found that missing or invalid claim data was second only to registration eligibility issues for causing claim denials. RevSpring customers that use OCR to streamline the forms completion process increase the accuracy of data captured at intake, eliminating costly errors that can lead to insurance claim denials.
OCR (or Optical Character Recognition) allows patients to quickly and accurately complete digital forms, reducing the administrative burden on staff during the preservice registration process, while increasing convenience for patients.
Here’s how it works:
It’s that easy.
Ready to let OCR do the work so you can focus on patient needs?
Paperwork doesn’t have to be painful.
Practices across the country are switching to digital forms to modernize their patient experience. With technology tools like OCR (Optical Character Recognition) you can use documents like insurance cards and driver’s license to quickly and easily collect patient information and save them time.
In addition, your staff will love the reduction in manual effort and the increase in data accuracy.
As modern consumers, patients are expecting ease-of-use during their healthcare experience. It’s one of the Top 10 Consumer takeaways featured in our recent eBook, aimed to help you create a patient experience that delights.
Fill the gaps in preservice coverage verification and estimation of the patient’s financial obligation with accuracy, clarity, workflows, and precisely tailored payment options everywhere.
Our estimation and eligibility tools solve common questions in registration and billing:
How can I maximize collection of the patient’s portion of the cost of the service?
Answer: Provide patients with an estimate of their cost. Be prepared to deliver Good Faith Estimates as defined by The Surprise Billing Regulation. Additionally, collect a card on file and have early financial conversations about payment options.
How can I maximize the productivity of my staff and do more in less time with fewer errors?
Answer: An intuitive staff view based on Work Queues allows the user to focus on those visits/accounts needing attention while not holding up patients for service once all steps have been taken.
Ready to take action?
Take a walk in your patient’s shoes to see how estimates are a critical point on the path to a successful patient experience.

Digital patient intake forms fit patient’s lifestyles when they can complete paperwork without the stress of being rushed in the waiting room. Plus, a patient can begin filling out forms at soccer practice, and finish them later on the couch at home without losing any progress.
With current technology, known information about the patient can be pre-filled, and conditional logic for sections and questions simplify the form completion process making it a fast, easy process for patients.
Digitizing these documents and intake processes can also relieve staff of much of the administrative burden, and allow them to focus on more complicated tasks.
In this month’s blog, we’re talking about taking the pain (and paper!) out of paperwork.
For years, our MEDENT users have enjoyed automated texting communications to remind patients of their appointments, provide instructions, and let them know when they’re due to schedule. Now texting is available to combine those automated messages with hands-on communication to respond to texts your patients may already be sending in.
Plus, conversation management tools make it possible for you to facilitate scheduling appointments, deliver intake forms, take payment and more. The benefits of this communication platform includes:
It’s all part of a patient engagement strategy that builds trust with your patients as they come to know, understand, and engage whenever and however suits their needs best. Learn more in our recent white paper: Building Trust with Patients.
Outreach Messaging can now be connected to MEDENT’s self-scheduling module to allow patients to easily schedule their visit after receiving a “you are due for an appointment” message. The schedule links can be organization, location, and/or provider specific.

Healthcare demands engaging patients how they prefer—and—driving results. Luckily, Digital Doorways powered by RevSpring let MEDENT users do both!
Digital communication, combined with targeted applications, automation and predictive analytics, is accelerating the advancement of patient-centric digital doorways that are key to better financial results for providers.
Digital doorways align perfectly with the needs of patients for communication and financial engagement that is convenient and flexible. Some are calling it a “digital front door,” which most typically refers to a marketing effort aimed at building a provider’s brand identity. At RevSpring, digital doorways for MEDENT users are more comprehensive. They encapsulate a holistic and connected approach to patient engagement, with tremendous benefits for patients and providers alike.
Most importantly, digital doorways can improve patient engagement no matter where a patient—or healthcare provider—happens to be today in their adoption of digital solutions.
Digital Doorways can include:
The true power of digital doorways lies in the strategy that connect them, ensuring that providers are able to generate best responses and highest rates of return.
The keys to unlocking such a strategy? Advanced analytics and smart automation that allow providers who use MEDENT to act on data and make changes to patient engagement in real time.

The federal government’s Price Transparency rule for hospitals is now a reality, but as many hospitals struggle to meet the requirements it’s a case of “reality bites.” Fortunately, there’s a cure and it’s painless to boot—especially for MEDENT customers.
RevSpring, integrated with the MEDENT HIS system, offers a streamlined method for complying with the Price Transparency rule through an easy-to-use online price shopping tool:
This is exactly what is happening at a small non-profit hospital that recently accessed our price transparency services. Patient Financial Services leaders at Coffeyville Regional Medical Center (CRMC) are so delighted with their new ability to easily discuss costs with patients prior to care, they now are implementing RevSpring’s price shopping tool for consumers and our estimation tool for its registrars.
CRMC—and other hospitals and health systems that meet, and even exceed, the price transparency rule—will be in a strong position to give patients more options, more choices, and more knowledge to prepare them for their financial responsibilities, which patients will reward with loyalty, more timely payments, and referrals.
