Medinol Medical Billing & Claims Software is a system developed to help dieticians in private practice manage their revenue generation and secure payment for their services, either by the patient or their medical aid.

Scrutiny of our macro environment shows evidence of many threats and pitfalls, any one of which can lead to the private practice's surprise demise. Medinol minimises the financial risk by ensuring that your practice complies with all statutory and billing requirements, without missing a beat!




You want a software tool that won’t take weeks to implement and won’t frustrate your staff. Medinol is easy to install, easy to learn and dead simple to run. Written in plain simple SA health care language it is easily understood by most staff working in a modern-day dietitian practice.

Medinol ships electronically, and we do the heavy-lifting for you. Installation and commissioning can be performed via remote access.

Our screens are character based (DOS) – some may say old-fashioned – but it does mean that data capturing is fast and free from Click-o-rhea.

Medinol takes care of your Patient enrolment, Invoicing, EDI Submissions, and Payments, all of which are intuitive and super-easy to accomplish.

Plus, should you need it, help from a live human being is never more than a call, WhatsApp or email away.


Busy dietitians and their practice managers don’t need complicated systems that make it difficult for them to track the practice’s financial health.

Medinol provides easy access to important details like Electronic claims, Daily Record of Treatment, Payment reports, Financial Summary, Treatment Statistics from straightforward pull-down menus that simplifies tasks for the dietitian and admin staff.

Data management is provided for Patient/Members, Medical Aids, Treatment Items, Tariff Codes, Diagnostic ICD10 Codes together with meaningful displays that makes information on the system very easy to interpret when dealing with queries.


In terms of the provisions of the Medical Schemes Act, 1998 and the regulations promulgated under the Act, accounts rendered by a dietitian must contain the following particulars:

· The name and practice code number of the referring practitioner (where applicable).

· The name of the member.

· The name of the patient.

· The name of the medical scheme.

· The membership number of the member.

· The practice code number and name of practitioner.

· The nature and cost of the treatment.

· The date on which the service was rendered.

· The relevant diagnostic codes and NHRPL item code numbers relating to the health service rendered.


We all know what a consultation costs these days. And in terms of the income looked after by Medinol Practice Management software in a typical dietitian practice, the investment is very, very affordable.

a) Initial outlay: R7500 reduced to R4 500,

b) Annual license fee: currently R1940 payable after first year only,

c) EDI fee: R5.75 per claim – agreement dependent on EDI company.

For a new practice starting out, we do offer 3 month payment terms so that Medinol virtually pays for itself!
