 "Episode Alert reports are real time savers"

"Episode Alert reports are real time savers. The entire Episode Alert report suite reduces the FTE time spent researching, checking, following up as corrections are already identified in the reports. Especially important to my billing department is the that Episode Alert finds mistakes after the initial certification check but before first billing - errors that normally wouldn't be found until after initial billing."
