ONTARIO, Canada --(Business Wire)--
Cloud Practice, Inc. has announced that ClinicAid, its web-based
medical billing software, is now available in Ontario. Medical
practices throughout the province will now be able to dramatically
streamline their billing to the Ontario Health Insurance Plan (OHIP),

ClinicAid is designed to save physicians time and money by eliminating
or reducing many of the complications associated with billing. It also
allows physicians and their staff to process more invoices in less time

Physicians in Alberta who have been using ClinicAid since it launched in
2012 say it has made a significant improvement in how theybill and
allows for much-needed flexibility.
"ClinicAid is fast and effective," says John Fernandes, MD, a general

transformed our billing process and saved our practice an enormous
amount of time. Adopting ClinicAid into our practice is one of the best
business decisions we've ever made. It's also quite easy to learn and
ClinicAid facilitates physician billing submissions to Medical
Claims Electronic Data Transfer (MCEDT), the Ontario Ministry of
Health's new web-based system, as well. The Ministry recently announced
that all physicians are mandated to transition from the current GONet
dialup modem system to MCEDT by December 18th, 2014.
Switching over to MCEDT with ClinicAid will allow for automated
submissions for Ontario's practices.
"Physicians and medical practice staff will find it easy to customize
the invoicing page with physician billing preferences, service codes,
and diagnostic codes and to quickly select patient names, health numbers
and other necessary information," says Jordan Visco, CEO of Cloud
Practice, Inc., the company that developed ClinicAid. "The reporting
tools allow users to easily check the status of invoices, identify
claims with potential errors, filter reports through many different
variables, and confirm what amounts the government has approved for
payment." Visco adds, "With regard to security, the protection of data
is one of our paramount concerns."
