ATLANTA--()--McKesson Corporation today announced the launch of Lytec Mobile, a no-fee application for the iPad® and iPhone® that’s now available for download from the Apple App Store. Designed for use on the newly-released Lytec® 2013, Lytec Mobile offers a seamless integration of mobile computing technology and practice management systems, delivering the flexibility and accessibility today’s providers want.
“Like most small practices, our Lytec customers are facing the challenge of reduced Medicare reimbursements and need new ways to gain efficiencies and enhance revenue generation”
According to a Manhattan Research study, physician adoption of tablets for professional purposes doubled between 2011 and 2012, with half using them at the point-of-care. The rapid adoption of devices among providers is driving demand for applications that can help streamline patient encounters and enhance quality of care.
“The Lytec Mobile application has made me more accountable for what I am billing, and I don’t feel like I am missing patient visits or charges anymore,” said Alison Oswald, M.D., WingHaven Pediatrics, LLC.
The combined functionality of Lytec Mobile and Lytec 2013 allows providers to use their phones or tablets to view their schedules and to transmit charges, diagnosis codes and notes to the front desk or biller. The electronic capture of charges and diagnoses also eliminates the need for paper superbills, helping streamline documentation and reducing the chance for data-entry errors.
“Like most small practices, our Lytec customers are facing the challenge of reduced Medicare reimbursements and need new ways to gain efficiencies and enhance revenue generation,” said David Henriksen, senior vice president, McKesson Physician Practice Solutions. “By improving accessibility and optimizing data capture, Lytec Mobile can help them do just that. Our customers are excited about the potential of mobile in their practices, and we’re happy to be able to offer this solution to them.”
With Lytec Mobile, McKesson continues its commitment to enhancing the vitality of small, independent practices. For more than 20 years, McKesson has been creating solutions specifically designed to help physician practices reduce time spent on administrative tasks and meet the needs of running a modern practice.
