Shirley, NY – October 2, 2014 – Biodex Medical Systems, Inc. is featuring the Balance System SD with enhanced product software at the upcoming LeadingAge Conference. The balance device now offers Automated G-code Calculation and Impairment Level Reports, Enhanced Sensory Integration Balance Testing, new Normative Databases, and new Patient Data Collection capabilities.
Biodex is addressing the importance of Medicare reimbursement and continuity of care with the addition of automated G-code calculation and impairment level reports. The enhanced objective reporting includes impairment percent with associated modifier code, functional limitation G‐code categories, and patient status (current and discharge).
The automated reporting allows therapists to spend more time with patients, less time on paperwork and assures fewer reimbursement denials from Medicare. Therapists can use the reporting to manage patients efficiently and generate more detailed objective documentation of rehab effectiveness, providing justification of clinical decision making. This increases clinical efficiency, productivity, and helps reduce the rate of readmissions – making a facility an attractive partner to ACO’s.
Enhanced sensory integration balance testing capabilities allow facilities to be on the leading edge with Balance Assessment for Fall Risk Screening and Conditioning Programs, thus increasing services and the opportunity for referrals.
The availability of new normative databases allows for targeting of senior populations. The new patient data collection software utility permits archiving test records in patient folders. In addition, custom normative data can be created, using patient data which is easily exported as a .csv file to Excel for statistical analysis.
“Biodex understands that in order for facilities to grow and prosper they need to be on the cutting edge with the services they offer to patients,” states Don Gronachan, Vice President Physical Medicine Sales. “Our goal is to ensure that our customers have the most advanced rehabilitation devices and programs to meet these needs.”
Biodex Medical Systems, Inc. manufactures rehabilitation devices for all disciplines of physical medicine including Senior Rehabilitation, Sports Medicine/Orthopedic, Neurorehabilitation, Post-Acute Care and Wellness Conditioning.
The LeadingAge Conference takes place October 20 – 22, 2014, at Music City Center, Nashville, TN. Visit the Biodex Booth #2228, for a live demonstration of the new software on the Balance System SD.
