PMDRX adds orthotic component
GLENDALE, Ariz. – PMDRX has launched a new orthotic bracing exam and documentation component for prescribing practitioners to help them determine patient medical necessity for off-the-shelf orthotic bracing. The tool does not “force” qualification—it assists prescribers in painting a clear picture of whether or not a patient has medical necessity for a brace, helping to eliminate documentation errors. “Previously, orthotic device providers were reporting a documentation error rate as high as 85%,” the company states in a press release. Upon completion of an evaluation, prescribers have the ability to auto-format the completed exam into a CMS-compliant comprehensive report. They can also electronically authenticate and sign the final documentation with their password-protected signature.
