ZOZ SYSTEM has issued the first settlement invoice for NFZ on the basis of the Uniform Patient Groups system

ZOZ SYSTEM Kielce migrates to Medicus On-Line (until April, 2008 known as Argus). It is one of the first healthcare institutions to provide customer (hospitals and health centers) settlements using the Uniform Patient Groups system.

“We were extremely afraid of introducing the new NFZ settlement element, just like everyone else, but we decided not to postpone the introduction of Uniform Patient Groups. Today, we have a settlement invoice ready for NFZ, and that’s a fact,” says Jarosław Rabajczyk, ZOZ SYSTEM Kielce representative. The company uses the Medicus On-Line system to provide National Health Fund (NFZ) settlement services for dozen or so healthcare units in the Świętokrzyskie province.

A new national healthcare benefit provider settlement system has been introduced on July 1, 2008. This system uses the so-called Uniform Patient Groups. The Medicus On-Line system has therefore been updated with Uniform Patient Group assignments. Impulsy customers currently benefit from simple NFZ settlements, selecting ICD10 coding, ICD9 procedures and the most profitable Uniform Patient Group.

At the beginning of 2Q2008, Impulsy signed a business deal with Textus Virtualis, becoming the sole distributor of their software. As a result of this deal, the Argus application has been used as a foundation for a new healthcare system called Medicus On-Line. The system will be developed jointly, whereas Impulsy will be its sole owner. Medicus On-Line is an IT system for managing the so-called “white zone” of hospitals and health centers, both public and private. Apart from Medicus On-Line there are very few such systems in Poland that are Web-based. This enables seamless connections between distributed units, and allows the system to be accessed not only from desktops, but also tablets, palmtops or even mobile phones (if equipped with a Web browser). Impulsy works closely with NFZ, and updates the software in accordance with current requirements, such as the Uniform Patient Groups.
