Lexmark International Launches Kofax Claims Agility
Jul 22 15
Lexmark International Inc. launched Kofax Claims Agility™, an ICD-10 compliant software solution that automatically processes institutional and professional medical claims and supporting documents. It captures, extracts and validates all patient, provider and service line data, identifies invalid medical codes and enables knowledge workers to quickly review or correct errors and to accept, escalate or deny claims as appropriate. Kofax Claims Agility replaces manual, paper-based processes with a complete digital solution, improves operational efficiency, and speeds identification of problematic claims and resolution with providers. It also enables validation workers to make a more informed decision about the next appropriate action, expedites the transition of ‘clean claims’ and corrected claims into the downstream adjudication process, and reduces the cost of claims processing. This new solution solves the overwhelming paper challenges insurers face due to the influx of more than 15 million people brought into the healthcare system through the Affordable Care Act, which has resulted in an estimated 190 million new claims, with an estimated 15 million of those being paper-based. Kofax Claims Agility accelerates claims automation projects for health insurance carriers, property and casualty insurance companies processing injury claims, large healthcare providers and third-party administrators. Designed to process medical claims quickly and efficiently, Claims Agility is built on the TotalAgility smart process application platform that enables organizations to quickly integrate with back-end systems, create new processes that fit their environment, and monitor, analyze and improve system and user performance through operational analytics. Customers can also take advantage of additional functionality contained in the TotalAgility platform, including customer communications management, information integration, mobile, and e-signature, and leverage these capabilities at any point in the process to minimize workflow gaps and maximize provider and subscriber satisfaction.
