SASA Congress: Healthbridge launches next-generation AI solution

Bryanston, GT, 11 March 2019

Healthbridge, a leading health technology solutions company, announced the launch of its fully integrated AI solution – iHealth powered by MxNode; at the South African Society of Anaesthesiologists SASA Congress 2019 that took place in Port Elizabeth from 6 – 10 March.

The Anaesthetist solution intelligently combines Heathbridge’s leading cloud-based billing and revenue cycle management platform iHealth with the advanced clinical data capturing capabilities of MxNode, an Anaesthetist-focused cloud-based app. The integration offers Anaesthetists and Bureau services holistic support across their business, revenue and patient management processes.

iHealth powered by MxNode uses machine learning and Natural Language Processing to allow Anaesthetists to capture clinical codes and data at the patient bedside as part of their typical workflow. The solution then analyses the data to instantly generate patient quotes and billing instructions for instant invoicing.

On commenting on the launch of the integrated solution at the SASA Congress, Healthbridge’s Executive Head of Product, Neelesh Sitlu, said: “We are very pleased to partner with MxNode to offer our customers an expanded solution that genuinely alleviates the administration burden on clinicians by using AI and automation. MxNode is a leader in true clinician-led design and our integration with them solves the often conflicting priorities of caring for patients and completing the admin associated with billing and revenue.”

Sitlu went onto explain the direct impact of the integrated solution on practice revenue. “A case study by Healthbridge shows us that practices using the new iHealth solution have increased their turnover revenue by 22%. This is a direct result of integrating a leading clinician-led solution with our unmatched local capabilities to give practices the tools to better control and optimise their revenue.”

MD of MxNode and practicing anaesthetist, Dr Daniel Muller said, “We chose to partner with Healthbridge because we share a common vision for the future to improve the healthcare industry in South Africa. Our vision for MxNode is to employ the latest technology in automation to free physicians from administrative burden, thereby allowing them to focus on what’s most important, patient care.”
