Chiropractic providers benefit from comprehensive, integrated all-payer Revenue Cycle Management application
MINNEAPOLIS, March 27, 2018 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — ABILITY® Network, a leading healthcare information technology company, and EZBIS, Inc., the nation’s foremost provider of comprehensive chiropractic software, today announced a partnership to help providers simplify the complexities of managing their revenue cycle.
EZBIS, Inc will integrate ABILITY’s EASE® All-Payer Revenue Cycle Management (RCM) application (EASE All-Payer) into its EZBIS Office platform, the company’s complete practice management solution. EZBIS Office combines billing, collections, scheduling, electronic health record and a patient self-check-in module in one platform. Adding EASE All-Payer to this platform will give chiropractic providers using EZBIS Office seamless access to ABILITY’s comprehensive cloud-based, SaaS application to manage their revenue cycle.
EASE All-Payer helps providers by automating time-consuming, manual tasks, such as eligibility verification, and saves staff time and prevents delivering unreimbursed services. EASE All-Payer also helps ensure adherence to payer rules and edits. By making sure that claims submitted to payers are clean the first time, providers save money and staff time by reducing manual follow-up after the claim has been sent.
“Working with chiropractic clinics for nearly 40 years means that we understand the unique challenges chiropractic providers face related to managing their revenue cycle,” said Tonio Cutrera, marketing director, EZBIS. “To improve revenue cycle performance, chiropractic practices need an application that can streamline critical RCM processes. We are thrilled to partner with ABILITY, to help our chiropractic clients improve their business performance.”
“Managing claims and reimbursement can be complex, cumbersome and time consuming,” said Bud Meadows, executive vice president and chief revenue officer of ABILITY. “In partnering with EZBIS we create an incredibly powerful combination of specialized software to help chiropractic providers simplify revenue cycle complexity.”

Plus, you will get an introduction to the features in the brand new EZBIS Office Version 11.0. Special emphasis will be given to the fantastic new enhancements that we have made to the Electronic Health Records module in EZBIS.
EZBIS 11.0 adds dozens of new capabilities to make treating your patients faster and more efficient. Just a sampling of new features:
New “Body Charts” view in EHR
The EZBIS Electronic Health Records now features a Body Charts view that displays human body figures, allowing you to select a body part, including specific vertebrae, bones, muscles or more general areas for patients’ subjective complaints.
Custom Panels in Electronic Health Records
One of the most common enhancement requests that we have received for the EZBIS Electronic Health Records is to be able to customize the screens to show the information about a patient that is most helpful when treating that patient. Version 11.0 allows you to customize the EHR Panels to quickly view a patient’s information all in one screen. Reveal what you want to see and conceal what you don’t. You can use one or two panels and position them on either side of the screen.
Alerts for re-exams, schedule changes and more
The Scheduling panel in the EHR alerts the doctor when re-exams are due to be performed, when the treatment schedule is due to be changed, or for other special scheduling. Once a doctor creates a care plan for a patient, the scheduling panels are an easy way for the doctor to determine when to make changes to the appointment schedule, schedule exams or to arrange for other special encounters.
