Texas health system automates invoicing

The Baylor Health Care System, based in Dallas, has selected a vendor to manage the automated processing of nearly 300,000 invoices per year across its 12-hospital system.

The not-for-profit health system signed a deal with Brainware, Inc., an Ashburn, Va.-based provider of intelligent data capture and enterprise search solutions. BHCS will use the company's intelligent data capture solution to automatically extract and validate complex header and line-item data from invoices.

The data capture piece, called Brainware Distiller, will integrate with the Lawson Enterprise Resource Planning (ERP) system and Perceptive Software's ImageNow Enterprise Content Management (ECM) solution, both of which BHCS use.

"Healthcare organizations, like Baylor Health Care System, select Brainware Distiller to improve operational efficiencies within accounts payable," said Carl Mergele, chief executive officer at Brainware, in a statement. "By doing so, our hospital and healthcare clients can redirect money that would have otherwise been lost towards the latest in medical technology and healthcare delivery systems."

BHCS is a faith-based network of hospitals, primary care centers and practices, rehabilitation clinics, senior health centers and affiliated ambulatory surgery centers and includes the Baylor Research Institute.
