  RelayHealth Clears the Way for Revenue Cycle 2.0 at HFMA ANI 2014

New technologies leverage powerful analytics, help drive better financial


Business Wire

LAS VEGAS -- June 23, 2014

As the healthcare industry’s financial management executives and solution
providers gather in Las Vegas this week for the year’s seminal event, ANI: The
2014 HFMA National Institute, RelayHealth Financial initiates a new dialogue
about today’s complex healthcare reimbursement environment.

“We can’t keep doing the same things over and over again, and expect different
outcomes,” commented Dave Mason, senior vice president and general manager,
RelayHealth Financial. “The healthcare market is much different than it was
just a year ago – and presents new business challenges. Revenue Cycle 2.0 is
about using RelayHealth data assets in new and innovative ways. It’s about
advancing dialogues with patients and payers, enabling data-driven decisions,
boosting staff efficiency and – most importantly – forging initiatives that
help streamline and simplify reimbursement for years to come.”

At ANI this week, RelayHealth will showcase its expanded suite of end-to-end
revenue cycle management solutions, with a focus on how those tools help solve
some of the critical business issues faced by hospitals and health systems.

Product Updates Help Providers Capitalize on Data

Underscoring its commitment to driving intelligence into revenue cycle
management using analytics, RelayHealth is introducing critical enhancements
to its portfolio, including:

RelayAssurance™ 5.0 now leverages analysis of 2.3 billion financial
transactions and connectivity with 1,900 payers to provide enhanced lifecycle
visibility and predictive intelligence in the claims process. Early knowledge
of claims headed for trouble and just-in-time workflow help providers to focus
only on claims that need attention. These additions enable more efficient
claims follow-up, support integrated denial management and foster greater
provider-payer collaboration by saving time for all parties.

RelayClearance™ Authorization helps providers streamline authorization and
medical necessity workflows. The result: fewer downstream denials, less
rework, and greater staff productivity. It empowers healthcare providers to
readily identify whether an authorization is required and has been secured.
Manual touch-points, phone calls and faxes are significantly decreased, which
helps eliminate costly delays and increase patient satisfaction.

RelayClearance™ QA helps improve registration accuracy by alerting registrars
to errors in real time. Error reduction, in turn, helps reduce the probability
of denials, and benefits all processes following registration. As a result,
the quality and timeliness of claims can be improved, and cash flow and
average A/R days can be optimized.

RelayAnalytics™ Acuity 5.0, the company’s business intelligence solution, now
offers the first step in data integration across the revenue cycle. By merging
RelayAssurance and RelayClearance data, Acuity 5.0 helps advance the utility
of existing analytics, and unlocks siloed data that illustrates how front-end
process improvements can drive back-end results. Providers gain actionable
information to analyze revenue cycle trends, identify payment bottlenecks, and
visibility into patient access processes impacting the claim cycle and cash
