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

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.
