Mediware Reimbursement Services Reduces DSO 14% in First Year for Apple Infusion

Mediware Reimbursement Services Provides Trusted Outsourced Billing and Collections Services for Infusion Pharmacy

Lenexa, KS, January 6, 2016- Mediware Information Systems, Inc., a leading supplier of software for healthcare and human service providers and payers, announces that Apple Infusion is successfully using Mediware Reimbursement Services to help manage its business. Since switching to Mediware for its outsourced billing and collections last year, Apple Infusion has realized a 14% reduction in days sales outstanding (DSO), which has improved Apple Infusion’s overall cash flow.

Apple Infusion was founded in 1993 and specializes in providing infusion and enteral therapy products and services to more than 130 patients each month, with a service area that includes parts of Maryland, Delaware, and Virginia.

“With the unique industry of home infusion, billing is particularly difficult to manage in-house. Choosing Mediware was a sure way for us to confidently hand over our collections to specialists who have worked in the industry for years and can successfully take our business into the future,” says Debbie Kukta, comptroller at Apple Infusion. “Every month I receive detailed reports that outline how we can improve our business financially, and that assures complete transparency in how our billing and collections are being managed,” added Kukta.

“We are pleased that Apple Infusion has seen measurable benefits of using our billing services,” says Jeanne Lugli, general manager of Mediware Reimbursement Services. “Providing complete outsourced billing and collections allows our customers to allocate their time on what they do best—providing optimal care for patients,” added Lugli.
