P&R Dental Strategies Presents Sophisticated New Website to Showcase Its Many Products and Services

NEW YORK, NY--(Marketwire - June 24, 2009) - P&R Dental Strategies (P&R), a pioneer in the dental benefit cost containment marketplace, introduces their new website, www.pandrdental.com. P&R, a market leader for more than 20 years, offers both products and services to dental benefit payers that maximize cost containment and facilitates the dental claim review process. Their new website is attractive, easy to navigate and communicates clearly what P&R has to offer to the market.

Highlighted on their homepage is a list of P&R's five signature products and services that form their core business. Next to each offering on the list is an associated logo that aids with the intuitive navigation of the site, thereby adding to the website's overall visual impact. P&R's five main products and services are: the Professional Claim Review Services, DentSource, the Claim Review Management System, the Rapid Review Imaging System and Professional Services and Consulting.

The foundation of P&R's offerings is the Professional Claim Review Services. P&R has more than 40 accredited Dental Consultants on staff, all licensed dentists, available for professional claim review. Some clients report that P&R's Dental Consultants help them save as much as $25 for every dollar spent, a tangible measure of how P&R keeps cost containment its main priority.

Effective dental cost containment requires actionable solutions from sound analytics. DentSource is a web-based profiling application designed to provide payers a comprehensive view of individual dentist practice patterns. The profiles in DentSource are derived from both utilization data as well as claim review data for a comprehensive view of provider practice patterns. A key feature is the ability to make comparisons to a national database of dental utilization and claim review data. P&R clients frequently leverage DentSource to identify potentially fraudulent or abusive behavior.

P&R's Claim Review Management System (CRMS), used by P&R Dental Consultants to facilitate the claim review process, is now available for use by payers. This adaptable system gives Dental Consultants the tools necessary to complete a claim review including access to images, dental policy information, compliance with state laws and patient histories. Clients report a marked increase in productivity and a significant drop in errors with their consultants using the CRMS.

The Rapid Review Imaging System (RRIS) is tailor-made for dental claim reviewers and produces high quality digital x-rays for utilization reviews. If a payer has not yet converted their x-rays to digital, the RRIS will convert any x-ray to a high-resolution enhanced digital image reducing the number of pended claims due to poor quality x-rays. Crucial to the design of the imaging system is ease of use. An operator places an x-ray on the light bed for image capturing. Instantly, with one click of the mouse this sophisticated imaging system analyzes x-rays and determines the best lens and camera settings to produce a superior enhanced digital image. This industry-specific design of the RRIS, not available elsewhere in the market, produces optimal images at a speed that meets the demands of high volume claims processing.

P&R's Professional Services and Consulting Division offers consultative services in the following specific areas: utilization review, utilization management, dental provider profiling, dental fraud and abuse, dental network development, dental benefit design and dental edit system development.
