Revenue cycle management for health systems
Revenue cycle management overview
Secure full payment, faster
We help accelerate payment before the exam even begins. Patient eligibility is confirmed pre-visit through a curated database of tens of thousands of insurance packages. As we make more connections across the healthcare continuum, we ensure that more and more referred patients arrive with critical patient data, expediting scheduling, treatment, and payment. And the patient's obligation is clear and available at the point of service.
We combine the power of our network with work done at scale to help you get paid more, faster. Thanks to our unique billing rules engine, continuously updated based on the experiences of our network of 87,000 providers, our clients see a 94% first pass claim resolution rate. We establish and maintain connections to payers to expedite your payments.
