Mass General Physicians Organization to go wireless with PatientKeeper
PatientKeeper has announced that the Massachusetts General Physicians Organization (MGPO), the largest multi-specialty group practice in New England, plans to install PatientKeeper's Charge Capture and Clinical Results for use by Massachusetts General Hospital (MGH) physicians.

MGH has integrated the PatientKeeper Platform with several different information systems, ranging from scheduling to active medication lists. In the next few months, PatientKeeper will be integrated with additional systems.

"MGPO processes approximately 1.7 million claims per year for 200 practices," said Rosemary R. Sheehan, director, group practice management of MGPO. "Previously, as many as 11 individuals would be required to touch a single billing card. We needed to move to a technology that would enable charges to be captured and verified on the doctors' handheld devices and sent directly to our billing system. And we needed to reduce the time it took to process a charge."
