Billing, Claims and Contract Management

Billing, Claims & Contract Management

As reimbursement changes become a reality, your organization needs a strong financial foundation in order to succeed.

Our integrated billing, claims and contract management solutions enable your organization to verify expected reimbursements and manage any variances and denials right within your workflow.

A single platform designed to enable cleaner claims, improve communication and speed up reimbursement

Power of integration

We’ve built our clinical and financial solutions on a single platform, which reduces the need for foreign interfaces and enables a single point of accountability.

  • Integrate communication between billing and clinical teams to help improve process efficiencies (users can see patient financial data and, with appropriate security, link directly to the chart for any necessary reviews)
  • Leverage functionality like work queues to help manage collections
  • Manage denials, variances and appeals in a single workflow (enhanced functions available when integrated with our contract management solution)
  • Track financial performance across your entire system
