What is Saas?

Endless benefits and reduced risk for doctors and dentists.

Software as a Service (SaaS), also known as “cloud computing," refers to computer applications delivered online via the Internet. SaaS solutions provide business applications to end users without the need for costly network infrastructure and hardware, requiring only a PC or Web-enabled device with a Web browser. The software and data are stored on secure remote servers which provide 24x7x365 access. The community of SaaS applications is rapidly expanding and includes popular solutions such as Google, Intacct, Zoho, Taleo, and QSI QSIDental™ Web and NextMD.

Secure Data, Protected Practice

The benefits of medical and dental practices using web-based practice management software are numerous. Time and money is saved as the need for creating an internal server is eliminated. The practice management company handles back-ups and data security, essentially shielding the practice from responsibility and cost if a breach were to occur. Consequently, SaaS systems such as QSI's NextMD and QSIDental Web solutions help doctors be HIPAA compliant and reduce liability fees.

Key Highlights:
  • On-demand accessibility
  • No up-front software fees
  • Secure - Increased HIPAA compliance

Typical transactions include:
  • Insurance claims (837)

  • Claim Attachments (275)
  • Eligibility Inquiry/Response (270/271)
Key Highlights:

Combined with Revenue Cycle Management, EDI is a key element of QSI's RCM unit.

What is HIPAA?

HIPAA (Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act) is a comprehensive set of Federal Regulations. Title II of HIPAA requires the establishment of national standards for electronic health care transactions and national identifiers for providers, health insurance plans, and employers. The Administrative Simplification provisions also address the security and privacy of health data. The standards are meant to improve the efficiency and effectiveness of the nation's health care system by encouraging the widespread use of electronic data interchange.
