RelayAnalytics Acuity Puts Revenue Cycle Data to Work

  RelayAnalytics Acuity Puts Revenue Cycle Data to Work  Robust analytics platform merges eligibility, claim and remittance data to provide visibility across the revenue cycle  Business Wire  ALPHARETTA, Ga. -- June 19, 2014  The flood of data generated by hospitals and healthcare systems as a result of compliance, quality, payer and interoperability initiatives presents a fundamental question: how to make the data usable. Today, RelayHealth^® Financial is answering that question with RelayAnalytics™ Acuity 5.0, which helps healthcare providers quickly and easily access strategic data to analyze financial performance and operational results across the entire revenue cycle.  Many hospitals use disparate internal technologies, making data difficult to access and analyze. By providing quick access to historical data and trends within and across facilities, RelayAnalytics Acuity helps enable smarter, faster business decisions without burdening IT resources.  “What good is all this data if you can’t use it to help with confident decision making that drives performance improvement?” said Dave Mason, senior vice president and general manager, RelayHealth Financial. “Hospitals and health systems today need fast, easy visibility into the revenue cycle in order to make timely, fact-based strategic decisions. RelayAnalytics Acuity is designed to help hospitals capitalize on the data they have to improve their business.”  RelayAnalytics Acuity presents deep insight across the revenue cycle by enabling analysis of patient access, billing efficiencies, denials, reimbursements, payer relations, ICD-10 impact, charge processes and clinical services. Dozens of pre-packaged reports align specifically to business processes impacting the revenue cycle and can be easily customized to satisfy any organization’s needs.  RelayAnalytics Acuity 5.0 provides:    *Strategic, actionable revenue cycle insight –  Acuity leverages a large     volume of eligibility, registration, claims and remittance data to provide     holistic revenue cycle insight that can help hospitals make strategic     decisions to drive business process improvement.   *Visibility into departmental performance interdependencies – Acuity     provides a holistic view of the revenue cycle and how disparate     departments impact one another and impact velocity and accuracy of payment     (such as patient access impact on back-end cash flow).   *Powerful, user-friendly custom reporting to quickly and easily gain     insight within/across facilities – Pre-packaged reports can be easily     customized to provide unique insights. Access to historical data within     and across facilities with drill-down capability from macro to micro     levels provides almost limitless views into the data to meet unique     reporting needs.   *Additional strategic value for RelayAssurance™ and RelayClearance™ –     Acuity builds on the strength of patient access and claims management     solutions by providing access to historical and trend data to help drive     business process improvement across the entire revenue cycle.   *Visibility into meaningful information and performance alerts upon login –     A customizable homepage allows users to see the information most important     to their roles. Performance alerts are customizable to highlight when     performance thresholds are crossed. Default thresholds and key performance     indicators are based on data analysis and benchmarks.   *Near real-time access to key revenue cycle data – Helps users reduce     reliance on IT resources to pull reports. Multiple updates of your data     are done daily so information is constantly current and easily accessible.   *Helps empower compliance initiatives by drilling into data to identify     areas of risk in order to adjust systems or processes before deadlines to     avoid penalties or rework.
