dakota Unveils Claims Processing Solution for Mid-Sized Companies

February 23, 2004

dakota imaging announced the availability of Transform EZ, the company’s first data capture and transaction processing solution targeted specifically for mid-sized organizations.

Built on dakota’s Transform platform, Transform EZ reportedly enables mid-sized companies to cost-effectively improve their overall claims processing productivity by 400 percent with an affordable initial investment. In addition, dakota’s new solution allows companies to
scale their growing claims processing volume with the Transform platform.

Despite the industry’s shift to automating business processes, paper-based forms still reportedly account for a significant percentage of medical insurance claims. Currently many mid-sized organizations are faced with aging technology and partial automation of their claims process. As a result, these companies reportedly suffer from high labor costs, inefficient processing and inaccurate output and
are plagued with decreased productivity and deficient customer service.

dakota designed Transform EZ to give companies a fully integrated data capture solution that uses leading Intelligent Character Recognition (ICR) technology where it is most effective, without
high deployments costs. With Transform EZ, dakota customers can apply the latest technologies to their entire claims processing volume, resulting in record auto-adjudication rates and speedy claims turnaround time. On average, customers that implement Transform EZ to replace manual processing can reportedly decrease the claims turnaround time from one week to less than 18 hours.

Key features of Transform EZ include:

* Increased Usability and Simplicity – Transform EZ offers automated data capture and processing for the industry’s standard HCFA and UB-92 forms. This solution also provides reports on operations, productivity and system administration functions, giving customers insight into their business processes.

* Enhanced Scalability – Transform EZ offers rapid development and
deployment of new forms and document types in a fraction of the time and effort associated with traditional methods. dakota also offers its clients the ability to expand the use of Transform EZ for paper forms processing beyond claims and throughout their enterprise.

* Guaranteed Productivity – dakota guarantees its Transform EZ customers will be fully deployed within 60 days. In addition, dakota guarantees increased productivity for all its customers.

Transform EZ is scheduled to ship to new and existing customers beginning March 1, 2004.

Founded in 1989, the company is based in Columbia, Md., and has offices in Atlanta and Dallas.
