Amicas extends revenue cycle management offerings
Amicas, a provider of image and information management solutions, has launched Amicas Patient Services and AMICAS Payer Services--a suite of transactional services designed to reduce the time it takes for providers to convert receivables into cash.

The Boston-based company said its Amicas Payer Services provides insurance eligibility and claims and coding compliance management services. Amicas Patient Services automates patient collections with print and mail services for communicating with patients, online statement review, return mail automation and an online payment portal, powered by InstaMed, for use by patients and practices.

"Radiology billing is facing some incredible challenges: declining payor reimbursements, higher patient responsibility for payment and the complexity involved in complying with an increasing number of payor and coding regulations," said Paul Merrild, senior vice president of marketing and business development at Amicas.

Amicas will showcase its image and information management solutions at the RBMA annual summit in Orlando, Fla., from June 7 to 10.
