OREM, UT, September 04, 2013 /24-7PressRelease/
-- An early look into enterprise patient access reveals that a select few innovative vendors are heeding the providers' call for a more holistic, workflow-driven approach. The KLAS report entitled Enterprise Patient Access 2013: Trying to Solve Patient Access Challenges
shows that Emdeon, Passport, RelayHealth and SCI Solutions are leading a charge for an enterprise solution to help facilities realize financial efficiency on the front end.
But with the absence of a proven enterprise strategy, most facilities continue to look to bolt-ons from multiple vendors to accomplish tasks such as financial clearance, financial advocacy and patient liability. Providers are seeking partnerships with those vendors who really understand their concerns and can bring solutions with integration, automation and estimation services.
"With decreasing reimbursements, providers need to find new ways to improve revenue," said Paul Pitcher, report author and research director at KLAS. "They are seeking an enterprise approach, but this report reveals that the majority of provider organizations are at best in the early stages of such an approach, or are not there at all. Yet KLAS sees a big opportunity for vendors to deliver."
Vendors mentioned in this study include Emdeon, Passport, RelayHealth and SCI Solutions. To learn more about the vendors in this study, check out the full report, Enterprise Patient Access 2013: Trying to Solve Patient Access Challenges
