Beaverton, OR (PRWEB) April 28, 2011
Provider Advantage NW, Inc., a Beaverton, OR based company, is a national provider of automated, integrated real-time healthcare information software, announced today that Appalachian Regional Healthcare System (ARHS) has implemented its integrated Revenue360 solution.
The Revenue360 solution works seamlessly with Appalachian Regional Healthcare System’s registration system providing automated, immediate access to patient insurance eligibility and benefit information. Additionally, ARHS uses the Revenue360 Pricing Estimator to quickly calculate the patient’s total out-of-pocket portion of medical charges prior to services being rendered. This helps Appalachian Regional Healthcare System meet their commitment for better patient communications while properly setting payment expectations before they perform treatment.
Revenue360 enables healthcare providers to transparently bring together multiple revenue cycle processes without disrupting the registration flow. Revenue360 guides and supports patient facing staff through complex revenue cycle functions to improve financial performance, increase staff morale and enhance overall patient satisfaction.
Appalachian Regional Healthcare System expects this investment in technology to help their customer, the patient, to better understand and be prepared to pay for their portion of their healthcare payment. This will improve cash flow, reduce exposure to uncompensated care, and facilitate collection from patients at the time of service.
"Revenue360 Eligibility Verification and integrated Pricing Estimator allows us to be proactive in assisting our patients and their families to better understand their insurance reimbursement and payment options," says Rayanna Moore, System Director of Revenue Cycle at Appalachian Regional Healthcare System. "We are using Revenue360 in our pre-admission process to increase overall efficiencies during the registration process.”
“Appalachian Regional Healthcare System has been a leading customer of Provider Advantage. We are pleased to see them upgrade to Revenue360 and demonstrate their confidence by adding new services like Pricing Estimator,” said Edward L (Ted) Tomkins, President of Provider Advantage. “The challenge in today’s healthcare environment is to cost-effectively obtain complete and accurate patient insurance information and use this data to calculate the patient’s out-of-pocket responsibility at the point-of-service. Revenue360 solves this issue thereby minimizing rejected claims, improving cash flow, reducing A/R days and increasing patient satisfaction.”
