Emdeon Does it Again: Three Emdeon Revenue Cycle Management Solutions Achieve HFMA Peer Reviewed Designation

Emdeon recently announced three of its revenue cycle management solutions have earned the Peer Peer Reviewed designation of the Healthcare Financial Management Association (HFMA). The HFMA Peer Reviewed designation places these Emdeon solutions on a short list of prestigious products and services that have been proven effective by industry expert volunteers, product customers and independent HFMA staff.

Emdeon® Assistant, an automated patient eligibility and benefits verification tool, was awarded the designation for the fourth year in a row. And for the second straight year, both Emdeon Claim Master®, a web-based claims management solution, and Emdeon Payment Integrity Services, which provides accounts receivable audit and recovery services for healthcare providers, were selected for Peer Reviewed status. All products presented for the certification must meet predetermined standards as established by HFMA in areas such as product effectiveness, quality, overall value and customer support to earn the "Peer Reviewed by HFMA" designation.

"By helping providers better manage the complexities of the revenue and payment cycle, Emdeon's solutions allow our customers to be more efficient from the initial patient encounter through third-party reimbursement and final payment," said George Lazenby, chief executive officer for Emdeon. "We are pleased to receive corroboration from our customers and peers that Emdeon's solutions are effectively addressing healthcare market needs."

Emdeon Assistant simplifies patient registration through real-time automation of patient eligibility and information verification tasks and interfaces with most existing registration systems. Emdeon Assistant accesses a wide range of information from available government and commercial payers including insurance eligibility, referrals, pre-authorizations and claim status. Emdeon Assistant also has the ability to perform address verification, payment prediction, charity screening and discount assessment.

Emdeon Claim Master's innovative and easy-to-use web-based interface allows hospitals, health systems and provider practices to manage their entire billing process across all facilities. Emdeon Claim Master utilizes unique tools to aid decision support, provide dashboard snapshots of claims inventory, manage workflow and prioritize resources. In addition, Emdeon Claim Master provides trending analytics at the patient level while illustrating the claim lifecycle, enabling the user to monitor the end-to-end experience of individual claims in the claims management process.

"Emdeon Claim Master is one of the most important revenue cycle tools we have installed at Martha Jefferson Hospital," said Albert Payne, revenue cycle manager at Martha Jefferson Hospital in Charlottesville, Va. "This claim management solution automates the import of bills from our patient accounting system and sends clean claims to Emdeon without any staff intervention."

Emdeon Payment Integrity Services consists of professional services and technology solutions that enable healthcare providers to transform previously written-off government managed care and commercial payer underpayments into realized revenue. Coupling industry expertise with sophisticated tools to work with providers, Emdeon Payment Integrity Services focuses on key areas of the revenue cycle where providers traditionally lack the in-house resources to address payer underpayments including accuracy of payments and collection issues.
