Everseat Expedites Medical Access and Provider Reimbursements with PokitDok

BALTIMORE–(BUSINESS WIRE)–#API–Everseat announced today that it will make instant insurance eligibility
verification a core component of its scheduling service. Now, healthcare
providers can dynamically fill open appointments with greater knowledge
of their patients before they walk in the door. Everseat improves access
to care through software development efforts that incorporate the PokitDok
Eligibility Application Programming Interface
. In an industry still
mired in spreadsheets, paperwork, and landline fax and telephones,
insurance eligibility verification is now performed digitally, within
seconds.

“PokitDok is the magic bullet behind Everseat’s latest strategy for
boosting patient access and getting their healthcare providers
reimbursed on time,” said Jeff
Peres
, CEO and co-founder of Everseat. “Two things modern healthcare
has to deliver every day are easy access for patients and increased
efficiency for their providers. Securing accurate and complete
reimbursement starts with unlocking data for a simple, instant insurance
eligibility check. Thanks to this integration with PokitDok, patients
using Everseat can request appointments with their fingertips and
healthcare providers get more confidence they’ll be paid on time.”

Everseat revolutionizes supply and demand for medical appointments. It
enables physicians to post open appointments, dynamically fill
cancellations even on short notice, and mitigate the financial impact of
no-shows. Using Everseat, patients and their families can book
spontaneously around their own schedule and rather than waiting months
for an appointment, elect to receive push notifications if an earlier
time opens up. Look for appointments on Everseat with providers
including LifeBridge Health, Joslin Diabetes Center, Maryland Oncology
Hematology, The Centers for Advanced Orthopedics, University of Maryland
Upper Chesapeake Medical Center and Connecticut Asthma and Allergy,
among others.

“As patients take more responsibility for their own care, understanding
insurance benefits becomes critical to both the consumer and provider,”
said Lisa
Maki
, co-founder and CEO, PokitDok. “Legacy systems make booking and
paying for appointments a slow and expensive process that leads to
surprise bills and cripples revenue cycle management. Everseat is a
great example of how developers can use our APIs to re-imagine new ways
for providers to run their business.”

With Trading Partner agreements with
more than 500 health insurers and payers
, PokitDok manages health
insurance carrier connectivity, file validation, encryption, and
transmission. Healthcare transactions that formerly required
implementing the complex, archaic ASC X12 transaction sets can now be
performed with the ease of modern data formats, like JSON. Earlier
this year
, PokitDok received a Phase III CAQH®
Committee on Operating Rules for Information Exchange (CORE®)
Certification Seal, signifying its commitment to streamlining electronic
healthcare administrative data exchange.
