The Orbograph Paper2Post (P2Post) solution reads and extracts important transaction data from scanned images of paper-based patient payment coupons or statements along with check information to generate an EDI 835 ERA for posting automation into the Practice Management System (PMS) of a group practice, patient billing system from a private practice or hospital information system (HIS).
Orbograph Paper2Post extracts the check number, check amount and date directly from the check. Additionally, the claim ID, account number and patient name can be lifted from the payment coupon or statement.
The information is archived on the HPAC system and fully searchable from within the HPAC Payment Portal by fields such as includes date, payer, check number and amount.
Patient payment automation can be an add-on service to EOB Conversion or stand alone. Additionally, when an existing lockbox is present at a service bureau or financial institution, service healthcare providers, it is possible to import these files and images into HPAC as well for archival.

"Patient payment processing will probably see a boost in the short term as the payment responsibility shifts to the patient. Deductibles at the point of service will require immediate payment."
