PORTLAND, Ore., Feb. 21 Kryptiq, the leading provider ofnext generation healthcare connectivity solutions, today announced thatHillsboro Advanced Surgical Care (HASC) is utilizing Kryptiq's Connect IQ(TM)to securely share patient health information from eClinicalWorks(TM).

"Connect IQ Secure Messaging gave us a noticeable return on investmentwithin one week," said Linda Anderson, Office Manager of Hillsboro AdvancedSurgical Care. "eClinicalWorks is a fantastic platform for managing ourclinical information and Kryptiq has allowed us to extend this value beyondthe walls of our practice."

For example, HASC has utilized Connect IQ Secure Messaging to send patientand billing information to Uptown Medical Billing, a medical billing outsourceorganization. Prior to implementing Connect IQ Secure Messaging, HASC printedpackets of fee slips, insurance information and clinical data fromeClinicalWorks and sent this information via a courier to Uptown MedicalBilling. Connect IQ Secure Messaging now enables HASC to send thisinformation electronically, allowing HASC to reduce its revenue cycle bynearly one week.

Electronic connectivity has also created benefits for Uptown MedicalBilling. "The old paper processes for receiving billing information andrelated documentation used to create huge inconsistencies in our workloadbecause all the information would show up midweek," said Allison Drake, CEO ofUptown Medical Billing. "Now that the information can be sent electronically,we have seen our workload level out across the week, improving ourorganizational efficiency. We would suggest this product to anyone who needsto share medical information securely."

"The lack of data mobility is at the heart of the cost and quality issuesin American healthcare," said Luis Machuca, president and CEO of KryptiqCorporation. "Organizations around the country have recognized this and aretransforming their practices with Connect IQ."
