Atlanta, GA (PRWEB) February 23, 2010
Clearwave Corporation announces Healthcare’s Authentication Network and Kiosk (HANK). HANK allows healthcare organizations of all sizes to authenticate patient eligibility and verify patient identity in a matter of seconds allowing for a more efficient and consistent eligibility and access management processes.
Clearwave is EHR, PMS, EMR, HIS and HIE technology agnostic. The largest hospital as well as a single practitioner can now benefit from the connectivity and access management that an open network exchange provides. Much like the ATM network, HANK provides healthcare organizations with the portability and ease-of-use realized in the banking industry
With a connection to more than 95% of all health insurance payers in any market, Clearwave provides a single solution for organizations to authenticate eligibility for insured patients while giving the uninsured and self-pay patients the ability to provide basic household and personal information before services are rendered.
“HANK is the only solution that truly authenticates patient eligibility and streamlines the registration process while providing a compelling financial return on investment to physicians and hospitals,” said Gerard White, CEO for Clearwave. “The future of healthcare is moving toward sharing patient data across HIEs. The future of data sharing will be dependent on patients authenticating themselves at a device like HANK.”
Clearwave is exhibiting at HIMSS10 in Atlanta, Georgia on March 1-3, 2010 and performing live demonstrations of HANK throughout the tradeshow in booth #4233. Clearwave executives will also host a special HIMSS10 presentation, “Why Self-Service Must Be at the Center of Your Patient Access Process” on March 1, 2010 at 1:30 p.m. in booth #959.
Clearwave allows medical facilities of all sizes to authenticate insurance eligibility while improving front-end processing by identifying patients as active or inactive plan members or self-pay patients. By authenticating eligibility, Clearwave enables medical facilities to have the most accurate and up-to-date benefit information at the point of service, resulting in more precise billing.
Clearwave’s universal kiosk allows a patient to check-in through a self-directed process, which simultaneously verifies the patient’s insurance and displays their financial information to the office staff, all before the patient sits down in the waiting room.
Clearwave is the only solution on the market that can be installed in three weeks and has a real-time connection to 95% of all patient insurance companies. For more information visit http://www.clearwaveinc.com
