PocketMed® Revolutionizes Mobile Billing Industry

Launches PocketBilling(C) 4.0 at AAFP Scientific Assembly

CHARLOTTESVILLE, VA--(Marketwire - October 4, 2007) - PocketMed®, a leader in mobile charge capture at the point of care, presents PocketBilling© 4.0 at the American Academy of Family Physicians Scientific Assembly in Chicago.

PocketBilling© 4.0 enables practitioners to increase charge capture rates, and accelerate the accounts receivable cycle, while providing a simple interface for physicians to track their patient encounters. Physicians capture billing data on their handheld computer, smart phone or tablet PC, and can submit directly to their office staff or billing company, replacing the need for paper-based superbills.

Dr. Scott Strayer, Founder and CEO of PocketMed®, explains, "We listened to our users and delivered what they asked for. PocketBilling© 4.0 is an intuitive, robust solution that allows a physician to capture charges at the point of care and do it easily and efficiently. The average American physician loses up to $100,000 annually due to lost or incorrect coding of charges. We're changing that."

One of PocketBilling's users is Dr. Kenneth Diamond, M.D., of Gastroenterology Consultants of North Broward. Dr. Diamond says, "The PocketBilling solution has made everyone more efficient. We no longer print anything out. Instead, we just email our patient visit lists directly to our billing service. PocketBilling has drastically decreased lost charges, eliminated handwriting errors and improved payment receipt."

PocketMed® spent two years enhancing PocketBilling© 4.0 and practitioners will be pleased with the results. According to Amit Phull, PocketMed® CTO, "Our interface is now even more intuitive and innovative. The screen flow emulates rounds or office visits, there are pop-up navigation buttons and charge entry is made natural and easy. Doctors can get customized reporting output, and we developed a Coding Wizard for fast and accurate coding. We also included the 2007 ICD-9 changes. We can even customize interfaces with practice management systems."

PocketBilling© 4.0 is available for immediate download at The software retails for $189.00.
