Blood test for osteoporosis cleared by FDA

To be tested, women need to have their blood drawn in the physician's office or on-site at a laboratory. Results usually take 1 to 2 days. The new test is now available in laboratories for testing of postmenopausal women with osteoporosis.

MDeverywhere, which automates the reimbursement process for physician groups via its Total Solution product, announces the release of a Total Solution component called Dashboard, which provides immediate Web-based claim resolution. Practices are instantly made aware of and can correct missing claim information that previously resulted in reimbursement delays and denials.

Dashboard makes paper obsolete, says the company, by making all batches, including payments and correspondence, available electronically. With one log-in, practices already using Total Solution can access all of their data and immediately act on any pending items, giving them a higher level of control over practice finances.
