A billing platform for rural health services

  • synapps screen capture

Synapse Medical Services logoSynapse Medical Services has been building administration solutions for Australia’s health system for the last decade. We are focussed on making the lives of medical practitioners and health professionals easier with platforms for medical billing, clinical coding and transcription. Earlier this year, we visited Hobart, Tasmania for the 15th National Rural Health Conference to showcase how our solutions could be used in the most remote of locations. Read more about this here.

The aim was to spread the word about Synapse’s medical administration services, such as our mobile Medicare billing system. The Rural Health Conference was the perfect forum to showcase how practitioners in the most remote corners of Australia can bulk bill with an app, even without an internet connection.

We received useful feedback from the rural health care community at the Conference and, since then, have been busy building new relationships.

Medical billing for remote health professionals
The Synapps MBS medical billing system is medical billing on the go made simple, removing the endless or delayed paper cycle. Once you’re back in internet range, your claims will go straight through for payment with one click. This is very suitable for those health professionals treating patients in the most remote corners of Australia. It cuts out a lengthy paper process. Instant submission and straight through processing ensures those complex claims no longer wait weeks to be billed. The system has live app updates so you can watch your claims pass through to payment. The complex telehealth rules for the rural health community have been built in.

Our ethos is to improve efficiency without compromising on security or Medicare compliance. We are working on some rural partnerships so if you are interested contact [email protected]      

Medical billing online, low cost education
We’ve found there are still plenty of medical billing myths in circulation about how to bill correctly and how Medicare works, particularly in remote areas.

AIMAC logoIn July 2019, we launched our own accredited Registered Training Organisation, AIMAC, that offers health care administration courses that can be taken in your own time and at your own pace on subjects where there is a dearth of information available. We already offer Medicare billing essentials courses and will soon be offering specific rural health courses, including Telehealth billing and Rural and remote general practice billing.

These online, flexible, learning modules are suitable for rural health workers to develop their staff or increase their own knowledge of how to bill correctly under Medicare.

To register your interest in receiving a special rural community offer as soon as these courses are launched email [email protected] using “Rural Health” as the subject header and giving your name, organisation, email address and contact number.
Synapse Medical Services  was an exhibitor at the 15th National Rural Health Conference, Hobart 24-27 March 2019.
