ITRANS - Electronic Dental Claims

ITRANS is a leading edge Internet messaging and transmission service that provides a safe and secure method for communicating confidential health information online.

Developed by Continovation Services Inc. (CSI), ITRANS helps dental and other health professionals take full advantage of the communication potential offered by the Internet.

With this service, you and your staff will experience increased efficiencies in electronic claims processing.

Dental offices using CDAnet™, Réseau ACDQ and other claims standards can use ITRANS to transmit those claims messages and also benefit from powerful new capabilities such as radiograph transmission, online consultation and e-commerce (credit and debit card transactions are available at a preferred merchant rate).

Key Benefits of the ITRANS Claim Service

1. Quick, secure claims transmission. Using an ITRANS Digital Certificate, the ITRANS Claim Service allows you to transmit your CDAnet claims more securely over the Internet than is possible with modem lines.

2. A single point of contact for all claims transactions. ITRANS enables you to send dental claims to the insurance companies you are currently sending CDAnet claims to (except for Alberta Blue Cross). View a complete list of networks and insurance carriers that support CDAnet online insurance claims submissions. In addition, ITRANS:

  • Checks each transaction for errors and returns a response immediately.
  • Stores and forwards all of your transactions even when the carrier is not available (i.e. the carrier’s network is busy or down).

3. Saves you time and money. By enabling you to track your current and pending claims on the Internet, you always know the status of a submitted claim. Also, if supported by your practice software, your office can send multiple messages (claims, credit/debit card transactions, x-rays) at the same time, whereas you currently can only send one message at a time per telephone line.

4. Secure Dentist-to-Provider transactions. The security and encryption technology used by ITRANS meets PIPEDA (Canadian privacy legislation) and HIPAA (American privacy legislation) to protect the privacy of patient information during transmission, something conventional email cannot match.
