Breg Expands Offering in Orthopedic Patient Workflow Management

New Updates Support Orthopedic Practices with Increasing Profitability CARLSBAD, CALIF. – June 16, 2014 – Breg, Inc, a premier provider of sports medicine products and services, has introduced two updates to its award-winning Vision™ Patient Management Solution: Vision 4.1 and Vision Cloud Connect PUSH. Designed specifically for the orthopedic practice, Vision is a software-as-a-service application that streamlines and automates patient workflow. The new updates are helping orthopedic practices improve profitability as much as 10-20 percent. “The new updates to our vision solution are significant because now we can pull and push patient data to and from other information systems, like Electronic Medical Records and billing systems, for truly seamless workflow integration,” said Brad Lee, president and CEO, Breg. “Our Vision customers are gaining, on average, 10-20 percent profit as a result of decreased staff time, improved charge capture and reduced office waste. We are delighted with the positive results this evolving technology has had on our customers and their practices.” Vision 4.1 is the latest version of Vision, a web and mobile application that manages patient DME workflow. It enables customers to scan product barcodes for immediate inventory reconciliation, enter patient and billing information, capture patient and physician signatures and add compliance documentation on mobile devices. Vision 4.1 also incorporates payer fee schedule tracking, improved reporting and new fields for Vision Cloud Connect. Vision Cloud Connect PUSH links directly with an orthopedic practice’s Electronic Medical Records (EMR), billing and/or Enterprise Resource Planning (ERP) systems. Customers can pull patient information directly into Vision, eliminating duplicate entries and errors. With the release of Vision Cloud Connect PUSH, customers can also push patient data and documentation back into these systems. Vision Cloud Connect PUSH helps customers meet “Meaningful Use” requirements as well. In 2010, Breg’s Vision technology received the “CIO 100” award, which […]

The patented T Scope Premier range of motion hinge provides quick-adjusting stops; it also features a "Quick Lock" to lock out brace positions with the push of a button and a unique waist compression lacing system that gives patients an easy "one-handed pull" for an intimate fit and additional back support. Extra padding throughout the brace provides comfort, and details like cushioned hand protection for people using crutches, are among the features that help ensure patient compliance. "Our patients really like the comfort of the new T Scope Hip brace, particularly the compression waist belt," said James Voos, MD, Orthopedic and Sports Medicine Clinic of Kansas City in Leawood, Kansas, and field trial site for the brace. "It's important for patients to actually wear a brace to aid in their rehabilitation, and if it is not comfortable, they will not wear it.
