RelayHealth Financial Drives Just-in-Time Claims Intelligence to Streamline Processes and Accelerate Payment

  RelayHealth Financial Drives Just-in-Time Claims Intelligence to Streamline   Processes and Accelerate Payment  RelayAssurance taps vast data pool with analytics to enable targeted, timely follow up & efficient administration  Business Wire  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.
