there is no cost to implement.
we get you started with a serial implementation in order to minimize any disruption to your core business. doing it one step at a time allows you to spread out the time required of your staff and makes for a seamless transition.
a simple set of forms might take 3-5 days; a complex workflow may take 1-2 weeks. the size of your company is a good indicator of where it may fall in this spectrum.
1. send us samples of your forms
phase i: your first form (e.g. credentialing) allow 3-5 days
we would need the following time from your it contact, in a web meeting environment:
2. data mapping and network topology <4 hours
3. link insertion <4 hours
we are very sensitive to your staff resource allocation. the rest of the process requires none of your staff’s time because our technology staff handles: implementation, testing, and release.
phase ii: remaining document workflows allow 1 to 2 weeks
for example, authorizations, assessments, billing, claims, sales orders, change orders, etc.
phase ii is made easier because we’re already familiar with your network. your it contact will need time in web meetings with us to answer additional questions:
4. data mapping and network topology <4 hours
5. link insertion <4 hours
as above, the following requires none of your staff’s time because our technology staff handles: implementation, testing, and release
