Presently, the DME management program is for workers compensation and personal injury patients. Orthopedic, Pain, Podiatry, and Occupational Medicine are ideal candidates for this program.
Although some medical offices have a durable medical equipment (DME) program, many of the DME programs are unsuccessful. In-house DME programs have their own challenges regarding managing inventory, workflow, and insurance billing.
MedX Sales can help simplify the entire process for both staff and billing departments. MedX will manage product fulfillment eliminating the need to stock and manage inventory. Certain DME items can also be branded with your practice name to help you stand apart from the competition.
MedX can source most braces from a variety of sources, but if you’re happy with your current supplier, that’s fine too. MedX can simply your billing needs and help reduce product costs for the practice. MedX will send the practice a replacement device when used with the management program. Alternatively, keep your inventory small and have braces in the office for sizing and fitting purposes and let MedX ship to your patient.
