MedCompanion Inc. is one of the few handheld players to lead with charge capture. Its platform-independent system allows physicians to capture diagnostic and procedural codes on a handheld device at the point of care. A built in rules engine guides doctors to the use of correct codes, reducing the risk of federal audits. MedCompanion's technology allows doctors to capture previously overlooked charges and will speed up the reimbursement process by enabling same-day submission of charges.
