MGMA’s Project SwipeIT: Standardization of health insurance cards

The Medical Group Management Association (MGMA) is taking on waste…IT style.

It’s a great initiative, and I recommend that we consider getting on board.  The goal is to prevent up to 2.2 billion in waste that occurs each year through the use of non-standardized insurance cards.  By using machine-readable cards, patients, private practice clinics, and insurers can all save.  Click below to learn more about this great initiative.
