The company charges 2.9 percent of monthly collected revenue for the service, which includes electronic health records, practice management and patient portal software, training, support and maintenance, and dashboards and other reporting tools. The vendor touts a first-pass acceptance rate of 98 percent, meaning more claims are quickly getting through the clearinghouse and forwarded to insurers.
