The greatest disadvantage of electronic claims is that they are near impossible to understand in raw form. Storing an image associated with a claim makes a lot of sense for the most HIPAA Claim Master's users. If you have an investment in a claim imaging system, you can now create images from EDI files and treat them in your imaging system just like scanned images from paper claims. If your staff can understand a claim on a UB04 in a second, why not make it available in this form? Having an image file makes it possible for case workers to call up an image of the claim in seconds.
The HIPAA Claim Master can also be used to create image files and PDFs of the EDI claims. Image file creation is a component that can be licensed separately.
The HIPAA Claim Master displays the EDI document in a page that makes it easy to read the 837 transactions. The following formats are supported:
Certain parameters of the formats are adjustable.
This is the same information that is in the image index files. This small subset of the claim data plus the image path and filename serves most image libraries well.
Image filename is also exported to the claim export. Here, we can also associate an image filename with the more complete claim data.
You can create image files containing the data that you see in Screen mode. You can create image files manually or automatically using the command line arguments and Windows Scheduler. Read more in:
