  Automated Business Solutions’ advanced paratransit software solutions can meet the needs of many types of organizations within the paratransit and medical transportation industry. Listed below are the ABS software solutions designed for the following organizations:

 

Medical Transportation Providers

 

Medical Transportation providers generally are for-profit companies heavily invested in providing Medicaid Non-Emergency Transportation services.  In some markets these providers can bill directly for there services to the state electronic claims clearing house for Medicaid services.  In other markets trip services are brokered to a provider and the brokers pays the provider directly for transportation services provided.

 

PtMS for Windows is the software solution for these transportation providers.  Our automated scheduling features and simple straightforward order taking system make it easy to handle scheduling for Medicaid transportation clients, private pay clients or other special services contracts such as nursing homes, hospitals or other health organizations.   PtMS Medicaid Electronic Billing and Client Eligibility Verification features allow providers to bill daily for services and confirm that clients being transported are eligible for service. 

 

If the provider is receiving his trip assignments from a regional broker in electronic form (such as download spreadsheet), these trips can be electronically imported directly into PtMS schedule, clients, and destination tables in minutes using a custom PtMS Import Trips module.  ABS has prepared many of these custom modules for providers in broker networks.

 

PtMS CAPS (Client Automated Phone Services) provides automated phone messaging services and client appointment reminder calls using a single PC workstation and an Internet connection for outgoing calls using Skype.  Appointment reminders can help reduce cancellation and no show rates, improve customer service and lower operating costs.

 

PtMS Mobile can be added to any transportation providers PtMS for Windows system to improve same day scheduling, streamline dispatch operations, enhance driver-dispatcher communications and reduce paper work resulting in more transportation services provided more efficiently at less cost.

 

Paratransit and Demand Response Transportation Providers

 

Paratransit transportation providers that are providing transportation services to a wide range of organizations including medical transportation, ADA complementary services, human service organizations, private pay clients, and general public transportation can be both for-profit and not-for-profit companies. 

 

These organizations need transportation software that is powerful enough to handle complex scheduling requirements yet affordable enough to fit inside their budgets. 

 

PtMS for Windows meets these requirements and more.

PtMS for Windows scheduling systems can handle diverse scheduling and number of trips from small (hundreds) to large (thousands).  With additional modules like PtMS CAPS for automated phone services and appointment reminders, to Medicaid Billing modules, the system is scalable and can grow with the needs of any transportation organization.

Deviated Fixed Route Systems

 

To meet the transportation needs in their areas, many small regional transit authorities or county programs providing transportation will often use a mix of deviated fixed route services and a fleet of specialized transportation vehicles.

 

PtMS for Windows is ideally suited as the software solution for these transportation organizations.  Deviated fixed route scheduling can be seamless handled by the PtMS automated Interactive Scheduler (for a demonstration video of this feature click here). Our automated scheduling features and simple straightforward order taking system make it easy to handle scheduling for both deviated fixed routes and paratransit vehicles providing transportation for both demand response and standing order trips.

Medical Transportation Brokerage

 

Medicaid transportation brokerage is one of the rapidly growing transportation management services in the country.  In an effort to control costs and insure that services are accessible, most county Medicaid transportation services are managed by county or regional Medicaid transportation brokers.  These brokers are responsible for enrolling clients for transportation services, checking client eligibility, taking trip requests from clients, assigning trips to providers in their service network, and monitoring to insure services are delivered.  Brokers generally pay providers for services rendered or manage the payment voucher process for providers.

 

PtMS for Windows in conjunction with PtMS Web can meet all of the transportation management needs of Medicaid transportation brokers.  PtMS for Windows can handle client enrollment, eligibility verification, trip requests, schedule assignment to providers (using both least cost and shared ride models), mapping and map based trip mileage calculations.  PtMS Web can distribute schedules daily to providers via a secure HIPAA compliant web site.  Providers are then able to verify the completion of each trip on the website allowing brokers to pay the providers for the services or authorize payment (e.g. NY State using a Prior Approval payment process that brokers can manage electronically with PtMS). PtMS Web also provides secure Web mail communication between broker and provider, and a means for distributing reports to providers.  PtMS Web also gives providers basic scheduling and dispatching features as well as a means to electronically export their schedule data.

 

PtMS Web can be expanded to include client enrollment, trip orders and more advanced scheduling features for providers allowing the broker to add agencies or providers to the website with the ability to enrollment clients and add requests for services directly into the PtMS database via PtMS Web.

 

Mobility Managers

 

Mobility Managers fulfill a combined roll in many county or multi-county transportation systems as transportation brokers, service coordinators and demand response transportation providers.  They are the single point of contact for citizens looking to use all forms of public transportation be it fixed route, deviated fixed route, Medicaid transportation, human service agency transportation, ADA complementary services transportation or other paratransit transportation services. 

 

Mobility Managers can use the complete array of PtMS products – PtMS for Windows, PtMS Web, PtMS CAPS and PtMS Mobile to provide efficient, well managed transportation services with solid customer service.
