follow up & efficient administration

ALPHARETTA, Ga. -- June 17, 2014

Rising patient financial responsibility, declining reimbursements, sweeping
healthcare reform and new payment models continue to erode healthcare
providers’ margins and further complicate the challenge of accurate and timely
payment. To help alleviate this pressure and streamline claims management,
RelayHealth^® Financial has bolstered RelayAssurance™ Plus 5.0 with
analytics-driven intelligence that provides unprecedented transparency into
the lifecycle of claims.

“Smart claims management is the key to timely cash flow,” said Dave Mason,
senior vice president and general manager, RelayHealth Financial. “Traditional
claims management is unnecessarily labor-intensive and complex – relying on
schedule-based worklists. With this release, RelayHealth Financial introduces
enhanced exception-based workflow that allows billers to touch only the claims
that need attention. With a more targeted focus, users can positively
influence their productivity and help speed receipt of payment.”

Armed with ‘just-in-time’ claims intelligence based on RelayHealth’s analysis
of 2.3 billion financial transactions and connectivity with 1,900 payers,
hospitals can now gain actionable visibility into claims that require
attention – at precisely the right time. Timeframes for payer responses and
claim follow up are intelligently calculated and pushed to the user,
empowering staff to focus on claims that need attention. This real-time
transparency not only helps drive down administrative costs for providers, but
also for payers, who routinely supply information multiple times throughout
the claim cycle.

This enhanced claims functionality is available as part of RelayAssurance Plus
5.0. RelayAssurance helps manage all claims, including Medicare, Workers Comp
and Property & Casualty, in a single web-based system. With connections to
1,900 health plans, comprehensive and current edits, and user-friendly
workflow, users can efficiently manage the claims and remittance process to
help keep cash flowing. The intuitive navigation helps minimize training needs
and improves staff productivity while an Operational Dashboard and extensive
reporting provide actionable data to help further enhance financial
performance. RelayAnalytics Pulse™, RelayAnalytics™ Acuity and RelayAnalytics
Spectrum™ utilize RelayAssurance data for comparative analysis to peers on key
performance indicators, strategic decision making, and departmental and
employee performance monitoring on the go.

processing and further streamlining your revenue cycle management, contact a
