A-Life Medical Announces Fusion3, the Most Advanced Practice Management System

SAN DIEGO, CA -- (MARKET WIRE) -- October 25, 2006 -- A-Life Medical, Inc., the leading provider of Natural Language Processing (NLP) for the healthcare industry, announced the release of Fusion3, the first practice management system that utilizes patented NLP technology for medical billing.

Fusion3 integrates documentation management, patented NLP coding, billing, collections, denial management, and auditing into a Windows®-based platform, providing the most advanced technology available today. A-Life Medical's Fusion3 was designed to effectively streamline the code to collection process.

Fusion3 streamlines coding and billing office operations and expedites reimbursement. A-Life Medical's advanced practice management system can code medical records, and submits charge data on the same date of service. The denial management module automatically tracks denials, sends appeal letters, and generates secondary filings without user involvement.

Fusion3 integrates a complete electronic document management system. Users have instant access to ABNs, transcriptions, insurance cards, EOBs, CMS-1500 forms, or any scanned document. The Fusion3 document management system improves the flow of information, reduces paperwork and inventory costs.

Fusion3 is a unique solution, providing coding and billing audit functionality. Fusion3 identifies a statistically representative sample of claims data and pulls electronic records from a centralized database. Detailed audit reports are automatically created to assist in the auditing process.

"Fusion3 is the first end-to-end practice management system of its kind. We've combined our patented NLP technology with billing to effectively streamline the code to collection process. In addition, Fusion3 allows our users to automatically perform random, statistical audits on coding, charge data, and payer information. Combining documentation management, patented NLP coding, billing and auditing into one system is unlike any other offering in the market today," stated David Byrd, A-Life Medical's Vice President of Sales and Marketing.
