HealthMark Receives AAOE Peer Review Designation

The American Alliance of Orthopaedic Executives (AAOE) adds HealthMark’s MedRelease to the Peer Review Program™ for orthopedic and musculoskeletal vendors, connecting members with industry professionals.

The AAOE Peer Review designation is a respected and identifiable mark in the industry. Becoming Peer Reviewed consists of a thorough eleven-step high-level screening process by current customers, prospects, and expert panel members – and HealthMark is currently the only release of information partner of its kind with this designation.

The evaluation process focuses on identifying vendors whose values align with that of AAOE’s and who offer:

  • Enhanced productivity for the individual user and customer’s organization
  • Ease of installation and use
  • Accuracy and reliability
  • Good value for the price
  • Excellent technical support and customer service

In the survey conducted through the Peer Review process, 99% of survey respondents agree that MedRelease is easy to use, 93% of Clinic Administrators agree they would recommend MedRelease to colleagues, and 96% of survey respondents agree that MedRelease meets expectations.

MedRelease serves as a powerful record management system that securely and accurately handles release of information requests.
 Records are managed with full transparency and compliance through an accessible, configurable, and secure dashboard. With a 5-star customer service rating, innovative technology, and industry-leading turnaround times, MedRelease offloads demands from payers and attorneys, allowing clinics to become more efficient and cost-effective.

MedRelease allows clients to:

  • Request and download records with 85% of requests completed in 24 hours
  • Offload audit requests to ensure compliance and accuracy – HealthMark has completed over one million audits with no deadlines missed
  • Check the status of all requests, maintain Accounting of Disclosures, and manage reports
  • Maintain high levels of quality control with both human and machine-learning chart misfile detection
