WHAT WE DO
For over 17 years Biz Technology Solutions, Inc has been developing custom software solutions for the healthcare industry.
Our solutions lower cost of operations, risks, enhance patient care and profits for our clients. We have proven experience in the healthcare domain. We use software development best practices to deliver solutions for clinics, medical practices, hospitals, TPAs and billing clearing houses.
In the healthcare world of today, the volume of clinical and financial data is not only overwhelming, it is poorly structure and not easily accessible for analysis. Intelli-Health is business intelligence (BI) technology built to address such issues. The ability to analyze large amounts of data, whether clinical or financial, can yield to better evidence-based decision-making for your organization. Intelli-Health technology can evolve your information into visualized data to support evidence-based decisions for your healthcare system.
Intelli-Health develops a unified enterprise view of compartmentalized and fragmented data systems. Not only does BI support external departmental data sharing, it puts a myriad of real-time reports at your fingertips:
Biz Technology Solutions, Inc. provides a number of electronic medical claim processing solutions based on the HIPAA EDI X12 industry standards that allow healthcare institutions to significantly lower cost of business, enhance customer care, and increase revenue. We offer a full suite of products and services to automate key business functions such as claim capture and processing, direct payer connectivity, medical billing, Electronic Data Interchange (EDI) and Document Workflow Management.
Our company is dedicated to making the job of the healthcare worker “less stressful” and “more productive.” Our philosophy is based on real life experience with the efforts and challenges of claim processing and workflow management. As a result, we have created high performance, sophisticated, and reliable user friendly technology. This philosophy has served as the common factor in the development of our product line.
We provide turn-key solutions from software systems to hardware options, to full-service training, support, and consulting. We are committed to exceed our customer’s expectations – providing you with everything you need. Expertise in healthcare billing, claim processing and document workflow management. We continue to bring leading-edge cost effective products to our customers developed using the latest J2EE and .NET technologies.
Our Insurance Claim Processor suite of products (ICP) is a unique blend of advance web-based software modules that have the ability to capture claims from medical practices, scrub them (Web Portal), and submit them to various payers while tracking an array of financial and accounting information (Consolidation Server). ICP eliminates expensive paper-based processes by capturing claims data directly from medical practice Practice Management Software ( Billing software). ICP claim handling results in faster reimbursement due to clean electronic medical claims submission and significant reduction in manual, error prone and paper-based processes for both the claim submitter and the claim receiver.
Palm Indentify is an easy to use biometric solution to accurately ID healthcare patients. The patients’ palm is digitally scanned which creates a unique digital signature that is attached to the digital medical record. Upon each visit the patient’s hand is scanned linking that person to the correct chart.
Is 100 times more accurate than the average fingerprint.
What is Palm Identify?
Palm Indentify is an easy to use biometric solution to accurately ID healthcare patients. The patient’s palm is digitally scanned which creates a unique digital signature that is attached to the digital medical record. Upon each return visit, the patient’s hand is scanned linking their identity to the correct chart.
How does it work?
Once thought to be science fiction, now today’s technology!
The pattern of blood veins is unique to every person including identical twins. This one of a kind
biometric signature is captured by taking a scan of a patient’s palm which only takes a few seconds.
During the scan an invisible infrared light is directed on the patient’s palm. This light is very similar to
the light used in a TV remote control. Some of the light is then absorbed by the veins while other
light is reflected. When red blood cells release oxygen the light does not reflect back to the scanner.
This results in a dark line pattern of the patient’s veins. These vein patterns are now converted by
an algorithm into digital points that are unique to that patient. These digital points can now be
compared to existing data in a database to match the patient to their record.

Like many decisions we make in life there are often trade-offs associated with our choices; some are positive others are negative. Unfortunately, there is rarely a perfect choice. Our job is to help you select the most effective solution for your business.
The Health Information Technology for Economic and Clinical Health Act (HITECH Act) is part of the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act of 2009 (ARRA). ARRA contains incentives related to health care information technology in general and contains specific incentives designed to accelerate the adoption of electronic health record (EHR) systems among healthcare providers. For eligible providers, the Medicare incentive is $44,000 per provider over 5 years and Medicaid is $63,750 per provider over 6 years. If you haven’t received your incentive payments or need help selecting the proper EHR for your practice Biz Technology Can help provide you comprehensive services to accelerate the process.
For medical practices, the path to ICD-10 conversion is a considerable challenge. If not done well it will be costly and will affect all government financial incentives programs such as meaningful use, PQRS, and e-prescribing. While CMS is providing incentives for practices to make the move quickly, there are also penalties for not meeting conversion milestones. Regardless of your practice objectives, this is a government-mandated program that is unavoidable. However you feel about converting to ICD-10, the deadline is looming and you need to make some decisions.
At Biz Technology Solutions, we have a track record of delivering HIPAA 5010 and ICD-10 Assessments, and ICD-10 implementation plans on time and on budget with excellent results. We can provide some the following services:
Best practices for ICD-10 transition
Business road map development

When patients are able to complete their forms electronically, the overhead cost and risk associated with traditional paperwork is greatly reduced. When patients complete their forms online prior to appointments, your front desk staff can focus on other aspects of the registration process and physicians can see more patients, thereby improving and accelerating patient flow. Electronic forms work great for practices with EHR software. Scanning is eliminated when documents are initially in electronic format. Patient form data is then easily loaded into any EHR with just a few clicks.
