Congratulations to Hayes Knight client Konnect Net winners of the Innovative Hi-Tech Services Award for 2011, announced at the Hi Tech Awards in Wellington.

The first solution of its kind in the world, the company’s SureMed service lets doctors receive and respond to insurance medical-information requests electronically. Cutting out the paper shuffling, SureMed has reduced the application process from 20 days to just eight.

“It’s a welcome recognition of the gains we’ve made and how we’ve made a big difference in improving doctor and insurer business processes,” says Konnect Net co-founder Hamish McLachlan.

Over the last year SureMed service has been adopted by the great majority of New Zealand GP Practices to save valuable practice time and respond much more quickly and securely to insurance medical information requests.
