PRESS RELEASE: ORANGE COUNTY, Calif. (10/1/2013) – DentalXChange, an Irvine, CA, based technology company that specializes in providing online solutions to connect dentists, patients, and insurance companies, has announced a new partnership with NCDR, LLC (NCDR), a dental services organization serving Kool Smiles and Resolution Dental nationally.
Through this partnership, DentalXChange is now supporting dental EDI services from claim submissions and real-time transactions, to the delivery of ERA’s electronically.
“By moving all of its EDI services to DentalXChange, NCDR has been able to improve its processes and reduce its operational costs, reaching an overall higher level of processing success,” explained Le Ann Eyres-Morris, Director of Channel Partners for DentalXChange.
We are very happy to have the opportunity to assist Kool Smiles and Resolution Dental in reaching their EDI and claim processing goals. Our relationships with our payer partners help drive the success of this unique implementation!”
After an analysis of their EDI and business processes, NCDR chose to migrate from a direct-connect model and move their claim and ERA transactions to DentalXChange, according to Eyres-Morris.
This change is indicative of a new direction in the industry, according to Scott Wellwood, President of DentalXChange.
“The industry is changing, and many companies are looking for strategic ways to reduce operational costs while continuing to provide exceptional service,” Wellwood noted. “We are pleased that we have the opportunity to assist NCDR in improving its EDI delivery, and we anticipate that this partnership will continue for many years with great success.”
Damon Dunsmore, Manager of EDI and Integrations for NCDR, led the implementation, and noted “NCDR conducted an extensive selection process in order to identify the right partner, and DentalXChange emerged as the clear choice. We implemented DentalXChange’s services in April and today, we couldn’t be happier with that decision,” Dunsmore explained. “I have been working in EDI for over 10 years, and this has been the easiest implementation I’ve experienced.”
Dunsmore noted that the DentalXChange Account Management team was extremely efficient in driving the implementation which brought comfort in moving the remaining volume this July supporting a complete implementation in less than 120 days.
“The whole organization really seems to strive to ensure the customer is happy,” he said. “I truly feel that we are business partners in the most literal sense of the word.”
According to Dunsmore, DentalXChange is a natural partner for NCDR, as the two companies’ visions are well-aligned.
“Both DentalXChange and NCDR are committed to using technology to provide high quality, affordable, health care reimbursement processes through secure, electronic transactions,” he said.
Since 1989, DentalXChange has earned industry-wide acclaim and recognition for pioneering the web-based dental EDI solutions industry. Today, it has grown to support a current client base of over 12,000 dental healthcare offices. Headquartered in Irvine, CA, DentalXChange accounts for more than $4 billion in dental claims annually. Through its own clearinghouse and secure web portals, the company processes nearly 20 million EDI transactions, consisting of more than 15 million dental claims annually.
