NaviNet Intros SaaS EMR, Practice Management

The multi-payer web portal will integrate administrative, clinical, and financial applications in a Software-as-a-Service-based electronic medical record for small medical practices.

NaviNet has announced that it will introduce by the end of the year an integrated electronic medical record and practice management solution for small medical practices to help them better manage patient information and office processes from a single website.

The company said on Monday that it will expand its multi-payer web portal by integrating administrative, clinical, and financial applications. The product will be offered in a Software-as-a-Service model.

NaviNet executives said its software currently offers real-time administrative, financial, and clinical transactions between healthcare professionals and leading health insurance companies like Cigna, Aetna, UnitedHealthcare, and Medicaid.

The integration of additional mission-critical, patient-centric information and capabilities with NaviNet's web portal will create a central, secure access point, the company said. The system will enable thousands of physicians and clinicians in the NaviNet network to capture health information at the point of care, perform billing and accounts receivable tasks, better communicate with health plans, and provide clinical decision support functions more efficiently and cost effectively.

"The intriguing part of NaviNet entering this space is that they are very aware of what is required to help with reimbursements from the payers," said Thomas Handler, research director covering clinical applications at Gartner Research. "If they are able to combine that with an EMR and practice management solution, the product could streamline the process and make it easier for small physician practices."

Handler said NaviNet is getting into a market where EMR systems have been integrated with practice management tools, but those systems have not been particularly well suited or knowledgeable about the claims process at health insurance companies.
