New Version 5010 Graphic User Interface from APP Design Offers Users Added Benefits and with Easy Navigation

Itasca, IL, July 28, 2011 APP Design  announced today that it has completed its new Version 5010 HIPAA-compliant Graphic User Interface (GUI). The upgraded interface is now available for users of HealtheNet, Western New York’s administrative information exchange.

The new GUI offers a more intuitive approach, with a cleaner and more streamlined look, Auto-fill, enhanced provider search capabilities, and comprehensive diagnosis description and diagnosis code lookups, require the user to spend less time on each request. Other benefits include enhanced business rule validation and comprehensive error messages allowing the user to easily correct any missing or incorrect information.

“The main benefit of this new GUI is its compliance with Version 5010 guidelines, but it also offers users more simple navigation,” remarked Robert Quinn, Partner of APP Design. “As HealtheNet continues to add registered users, pieces like this are integral to its success.”

HealtheNet runs on APP Design’s RHIOnet software, a secure, Web-based, healthcare information exchange system designed to deliver accurate and timely healthcare data to caregivers distributed across wide geographical areas. RHIOnet allows HealtheNet to provide secure access to administrative information from the health plans to assist the healthcare provider community in day-to-day business operations.

HealtheNet was created and funded through a collaborative partnership among the Western New York region’s hospitals and health plans. Today there are more than 45,000 registered users, and more than 300 million transactions have been processed since the system went live in June 2001. With HealtheNet, health care providers and office staff are able to verify the status of their patients’ insurance eligibility, benefits and claims. Users are also able to initiate a referral and inquire if one is in place. HealtheNet capabilities also allow for system integration with practice management and hospital information systems.
