The Box is a tool for automatic checking of SwissDRG invoices and Minimal Clinical Datasets (MCDs) in batch processing. It comprises a series of checks that draw on various sources of information: billing statistics, data from the fee-per-case catalog, grouping results, and information derived analytically from SwissDRG regulations. If the check identifies anomalies, the corresponding invoices are set aside and notes are placed in the expert systems to enable efficient manual processing.

Optimised service capture
The Sumex Suite automatically and optimally digitizes invoices. During digitization, the invoices submitted on paper are automatically supplemented with insured person data, case data and information on the ordering party, service provider and invoicing party from the data master of the connected partner systems. Thanks to comprehensive integration with the Sumex Suite, and other core or peripheral systems, with just a few entries any user can efficiently edit or supplement data that could not be digitized correctly or completely.
The Mobile Capturing modules enable high-quality capturing of invoices via a mobile device. This includes image recognition, precise cropping and intuitive user guidance to ensure quality.
In addition, the data is extracted from the image and is available as JSON or XML for seamless further processing.
Medical Invoice Translation
Today's medical bills are confusingly structured and full of incomprehensible jargon. Insurance companies have to explain the bill to their policyholders. But even then, it is still very difficult for the insured to understand what exactly was billed. With the Medical Invoice Translation module, the Sumex Suite offers the possibility to resolve the technical jargon issue and present an easily understandable medical invoice to patients.
Understandable medical bill
The service provides a simple interface for translating medical services into descriptions that can be understood by laypersons. The vocabulary was developed together with the Department of Applied Linguistics at the ZHAW. Continuous additions to the vocabulary ensure that the latest rate changes are also translated correctly.
The service processes various formats, such as the XML format of the Forum data exchange for the general invoice, thus allowing easy integration into existing systems. The result of the translation can be output as PDF, JSON or again in XML format.
