MIMEDX is an industry leader in utilizing amniotic tissue as a platform for regenerative medicine, developing and distributing placental tissue allografts with patent-protected, proprietary processes for multiple sectors of healthcare. MIMEDX's flagship Advanced Wound Care product, EPIFIX®, is covered by 100% of national commercial payors for the treatment of diabetic foot ulcers.

Net Health Wound Care, formerly WoundExpert®, is the company's proprietary web-based electronic health record (EHR) platform for wound care management. It is the most widely deployed wound care EHR in the country, used by more than 20,000 clinicians at hospitals and outpatient wound clinics.

Utilizing the Connections Module to submit insurance verification forms for MIMEDX products brings important benefits and value to both companies' customers. Busy clinicians can spend less time on administrative tasks and more time on patient care. Plus, insurance approval time can be reduced significantly.

"The insurance verification process can be tedious, time consuming and prone to errors," said Jessica Duryea, Director of National Connections & Data at Net Health. "Through the use of the Connections Module, Net Health Wound Care users can submit patient information electronically, which minimizes time spent and errors, and ensures a faster turnaround from insurance companies."

Electronically submitting insurance verification forms for MIMEDX products is included for Net Health Wound Care customers at no cost and will be available nationally starting in October. By using the Connections Module, clinicians will be able to:

  • Submit Insurance Verification Requests for MIMEDX products
  • Efficiently provide required supporting documentation materials
  • Avoid paper forms and manual data entry, which means less room for errors
  • Maintain history and submit verification requests from within patient records

"Through this partnership with Net Health, we can further streamline the access patients have to our EPIFIX® and EPICORD® portfolio for their chronic wounds and enable clinicians to devote more time to patient care," said Rohit Kashyap, Ph.D., MIMEDX Chief Commercial Officer. "We are committed to increasing the access patients have to our proprietary PURION® processed tissue technologies, and continue to strengthen our market leading services in reimbursement and insurance verification to provide options that help address the needs of our customers."
