Find more lost revenue faster

Our Charge Capture Controls give you unprecedented visibility into revenue management of your Cerner system so you can stop losing millions of dollars in missing charges.

Revenue Optimization with Charge Capture

The controls let you begin the task of revenue optimization by auditing charge capture in your clinical applications. Without visibility into your entire EMR transaction process, you have no way of knowing if charging errors are happening before they hit your billing system. Our Charge Controls instantly show you when charging is inconsistent and where the inconsistencies originate so you have real-time, detailed visibility into your charging process​.

Cerner-Specific Revenue Expertise

Our developers and analysts are specialists in Cerner’s unique multi-tier architecture. The Charge Capture Controls bring hospital revenue departments the system performance visibility that Panther has delivered to IT departments at Cerner hospitals since 2000.

Panther’s years of monitoring have revealed that even small charging errors can lead to significant losses. Using our Charge Integrity Control, one client found that missing a single lab charge over a four-month period cost more than $3 million in missed charges.

What Our Clients Say

Without Panther, we could have been billing incorrectly for a long time without identifying broken connections within Cerner. It was through the Panther process when we were reviewing the findings and what the system had identified that our pharmacy realized that something behind the scenes had been connected to the wrong orderable. Through Panther, they were able to identify where the connection was broken. Since they fixed it, they don’t get the errors anymore. Just having this window into the connections that are behind the scene was extremely educational.
Director
What was intriguing was Softek's focus, specifically on Cerner clients. We have found the ability to audit and trail things within the Cerner charge process to be problematic. Softek was incredibly generous to work with us and accommodate when our IT resources were available, to work around some of the bumps that we hit along the way. They were incredibly patient in helping us get to the point where we could actually get an agreement with them.”
Director
Softek has done an excellent job for us. They have a pharmacy tool that essentially identifies mispriced pharmaceuticals in our system. The vendor is quite inexpensive. We brought them on to do an analysis for us, and they found a significant amount of net revenue for us.
CFO
We have received our money’s worth. Especially when it comes to pharmacy items. Since pharmacy things are so complicated, especially when it comes to billing for waste, the tool was extremely helpful in making sure that we were capturing both the administered portion and the waste portion so that we could get paid from the payers on those.
Director
What was really a selling point for us was that Softek was willing to work with us while we were vetting their software until we could get the agreement signed. They were extremely helpful in that respect. There have been some enhancements that the vendor made for helping with daily charge reconciliation, so we are trying to negotiate what that might look like going forward.
