Automated “bill-only” charge reconciliation application to streamline implant supply chain management

Sept. 30, 2020

ReadySet Surgical announced the launch of RS Capture, enhancing the company’s cloud-based, end-to-end platform to optimize hospital surgical supply chain management.

RS Capture helps hospital supply chain leaders prevent off-contract implant utilization, resulting in more cost-efficient surgeries for the hospital and patient. By documenting and validating all vendor submitted implant charges against the contract Item Master prior to submission, RS Capture accelerates the revenue cycle by processing surgical invoices up to four times faster with 100 percent accuracy. It is estimated that billions of dollars in “bill-only” implant charges contain errors, so health systems are forced to expend significant resources to resolve inaccurate billing data which ties back the patient’s medical record.

“Managing the surge in procedural demand that many hospitals are experiencing underscores the need for a well performing surgical supply chain,” says ReadySet Surgical’s Founder and CEO Keerthi V. Kanubaddi. “There simply is no room for inefficiencies, particularly as hospital financial losses are projected to deepen by year end.”

“RS Capture shifts the burden of correcting invoice errors from hospital staff to manufacturers’ reps,” says Kanubaddi. “Hospitals dedicate countless hours per month to investigating and correcting inaccurate implant charge data which can negatively impact the patient’s final bill. RS Capture solves that, delivering process and efficiency that hospitals need now.”

RS Capture builds on ReadySet Surgical’s existing solutions, RS Track, which documents and tracks loaner and consignment surgical inventory, and RS Coordinate, which is integrated into the surgical scheduling platform (EMR) and provides real-time alerts related to upcoming patient procedures.

“With our end-to-end platform, we can provide guaranteed savings opportunities for our customers,” says Kanubaddi. “Hospitals no longer need a team of people to do a three-way match process for each invoice to ensure that the equipment was used, the item was contracted, and the invoice displayed the correct price. This type of efficiency is critical for the industry.”

ReadySet Surgical has the release.
