    Socket Introduces OrganizeIT Suite with Barcode Scanning for Organizing Music and Video Collections

    Web-Interactive Media Organization System Allows Users to Scan and Store Entire Music and Video Collections on a PC, Pocket PC or PalmOne Device

    Socket Communications, Inc. (Nasdaq:SCKT), the Mobile Connection(TM) Company, today announced the availability of the Socket OrganizeIT(TM) Suite, a software application bundled with a Socket SDIO In-Hand Scan Card that organizes private music and video collections based on UPC barcodes. The Socket OrganizeIT Suite is compatible with PC, Pocket PC and PalmOne devices, allowing information to be easily synchronized and updated between mobile devices and PCs for easy management. The suite also includes a barcode label printing program for labeling customized media.

    "Consumer media collections have become more and more complex with many individuals owning thousands of music and video titles on DVD, CD and video," said Peter Phillips, vice president of marketing at Socket Communications. "The Socket OrganizeIT Suite makes the ownership of music and movies both manageable and fun. Users can now scan, manage, view and print entire music and video collections in minutes."

    The Socket OrganizeIT Suite is the first product of its kind that offers a complete solution for consumers who want to manage their music and movie collection using a Socket SDIO barcode scanner with their handheld device. The Socket OrganizeIT Suite searches the web to provide detailed information based on barcode data. This information gives power to consumers who want their music and movie collection data readily at their fingertips.

    With the Socket OrganizeIT Suite, users are now able to track all music and movies by scanning hundreds of titles and store them for future purchases, rentals, or to rate items under consideration. Information can be available from the web or manually entered to complete a collection. The Socket OrganizeIT Suite also enables users to track music and movie items without barcodes because the Socket OrganizeIT Suite provides a barcode label maker for CDs, DVDs, VHS and other media that are custom designed by the users.

    The Socket OrganizeIT Suite enables users to manually enter personal ratings or other notes to further customize entries. Once titles have been scanned and entered into the Socket OrganizeIT Suite, users can easily sort the items or search for specific music or video titles based on any of the key information captured. For instance, when pricing information is included, users can perform an automatic valuation of their collections for insurance purposes. Additionally, the Socket OrganizeIT Suite allows consumers to scan items under consideration to create detailed wish lists for future purchases and rentals. Socket's OrganizeIT Suite is compatible with popular media playing and storing software programs such as Microsoft's Media Player and Real Networks' RealPlayer.


    Socket OrganizeIT Suite is an industry-first software application that works in conjunction with desktop or laptop PCs, Pocket PCs and PalmOne devices. The suite includes three versatile applications: music, video and bar code label printing. OrganizeIT is compatible with Windows 98/98SE, ME, NT, 2000 and XP as well as Windows Mobile and Palm Operating System for handheld devices. The Socket SDIO In-Hand Scan Card is very compact, weighing only 7.3 grams. Using low power supplied directly from the mobile device, the card decodes UPC bar codes as well as many other popular bar code symbologies. For complete specifications, visit: www.socketcom.com/product/sw1216-560.asp.

    Pricing and Availability

    The Socket OrganizeIT Suite including the Socket SDIO In-Hand Scan Card is available immediately through Socket's North American distribution channels with an MSRP of $299 or directly from the Socket website at www.socketcom.com. (Source: Press Release, Business Wire)

    OmniMD Delivers Integrated Billing Solutions for Healthcare Providers

    OmniMD introduces its medical billing services to combine with electronic medical record and charge capture software as a part of OmniMD's suite of products and services. OmniMD aims to work with clients to develop the best billing solution for their practice. OmniMD resolves the headaches of the medical billing process by providing quality medical billing services to clinics. Trained billing professionals at OmniMD provide these services and manage the complete billing operation.

    OmniMD replaces the outdated paper-based system with an easy-to-use solution that automates the entire billing process from point-of-care through reimbursement, and ultimately increases the efficiency of the medical billing process. Physicians can record charges at the point of care using OmniMD's charge capture software. After the doctors enter the charges on their PDAs or Desktop PCs, they're transmitted, directly into the practice's billing system. Once the claim information is updated in billing system, OmniMD's billing staff work on claims processing. And, as a result of direct integration, with all the required fields filled out properly, practice is getting claims out in less than a day, instead of the 2-3 days it used to take. The real benefit is that the group should be able to save major bucks on back-office staff, because they no longer have to input charges manually. Even if they used to outsource data entry job to billing service provider, they get discount in the agency's fee, since it no longer has to manually input charges submitted on paper. The OmniMD provides automated billing in the area of insurance claims processing via electronic submission and will be a means to provide one-stop solution for medical billing. This ensures greater accuracy, avoidance of missed charges and quicker initiation of the billing process.

    A number of factors make OmniMD the preferred, complete billing solution:

    Charge Capturing At the Point-of-Care
    With OmniMD Charge Capture physicians can quickly and easily select the proper procedures and diagnoses and create electronic super bills right at the point-of-care through their Tablet PC, Pocket PC or Desktop PC.

    Accurate Charge Capturing
    Commonly used CPT and ICD codes of each specialty are inbuilt into the system with easy retrieval facility. Physicians can store their own list of frequently used codes and the chief complaints list for easy access. The super bill templates are also customized as per specialty. While documenting the charge the software checks the eligibility of the CPT and ICD codes to ensure that wrong charges are not sent to the insurance company. The system comes with an E&M wizard for capturing accurate level of coding.

    Seamless Integration
    The charge capture system is integrated with the most leading practice management systems. By interfacing directly with the billing system, it would speed the submission of claims, resulting in quicker payment. Time to sending claims out will be dropped from 48-72 hours to less than a day.

    Electronic Claim Processing
    Bills are submitted electronically ensuring faster payment turn around time. Typically, 35% of paper claims are rejected due to errors, which is not the case with electronic claims. OmniMD Medical billing services can submit claims to all leading insurance
    services instantly.

    Lower Rejects, Faster Payments
    The claims go through an intense audit process to ensure that the claims submitted are accurate. This ensures that insurance providers provide payments fast and claim rejection is reduced.

    Rejected Claims Processing
    Claims returned by insurance service providers do not need to undergo delayed re-processing after a time gap. OmniMD Medical Billing Services immediately attend to the rejected claims, look into the reasons for rejection, rectify and reprocess it.(Source: Press Release)
