ORLANDO, Fla.--(BW HealthWire)--Apr. 5, 2002--Medical offices can easily and inexpensively manage practice billing and data from any location via the Internet with application software from XGear Technologies, Inc., a leading provider of Internet-based Practice Management Software for the healthcare industry.
XGear Technologies provides the healthcare industry with ClaimGear, an Internet-based Java™ application, which has the speed of a local PC application and the “use anywhere” flexibility of a Web browser application. Users install and run the ClaimGear application from any Internet-enabled PC in the medical office or home. All data that is entered in the application, such as a patient or insurance claim, is encrypted and transmitted through the Internet for safe storage and processing in the XGear Data Center. Requests for data from the user’s PC are sent to the XGear Data Center for processing and within seconds the requested data is returned to the user for viewing or modification. The XGear system utilizes proprietary data caching techniques to minimize the amount of data that is transferred across the Internet resulting in fast data transmissions.
“We wanted to create an application that would use the Internet as a link between our clients and us, but we didn’t want our application limited by the constraints and slow page loading of a Web browser,” said Douglas Kegler, founder and CEO of XGear Technologies. “The end-result was a fast application that resides on the user’s local PC and uses the Internet to link them with our data center. Because the transmissions over the Internet are fast, it appears to our users as if the data is stored on their local hard drive.”
Single and multi-location medical offices benefit by using ClaimGear because no expensive hardware or software is required. Medical offices only need a simple, Internet-enable PC in each office in order to access and share all of their data located in our data center. Previously, multi-location offices had to spend thousands of dollars on special software and hardware in order to share data. Courtney Barnette, Director of Operations, also stated “There is no cost for users to install ClaimGear on additional computers. Plus, doctors can install the software at home and create and print reports whenever they want.”
“Our clients can concentrate on running their office instead of worrying about data backup, claim submission, and printing and mailing patient statements,” said Douglas Kegler. “We handle all of their important, but tedious and time consuming tasks.”
