Kyruus Conflict of Interest Management solutions reduce the manual burden associated with COI management
Chicago, IL (PRWEB) July 10, 2012
The American Hospital Association (AHA) today announced it has exclusively endorsed the Conflict of Interest Management solutions from Kyruus, Inc. AHA Solutions, Inc., a subsidiary of the AHA, awards the AHA Endorsement to products and services that support member hospitals and health care organizations to achieve operational excellence. The Kyruus solution was selected for endorsement following an extensive due diligence process that identified it as a leader in helping care organizations and physicians manage the regulatory burden and reputational risks associated with physician-field interactions and payments.
Your Physicians, Their Payments: Proactively Managing Potential Conflicts
Rapid growth in the amount of publicly available data has enabled unprecedented access to physician information from the media, general public and regulatory bodies. Regulation, corporate integrity agreements and professional codes of conduct drive the need for greater collaboration between hospital administrators and physicians managing potential conflicts of interest (COI) related to physician payments.
“The increasing importance of COI management was initially raised at our Chief Compliance Officer Roundtable meeting, which is made up of compliance officers from leading health systems across the country,” said Anthony J. Burke, CEO of AHA Solutions, Inc. “We recognize the resource and operational challenges care organizations face attempting to manually collect, organize and evaluate physician data, in addition to the time and effort required by physicians. Kyruus Conflict of Interest Management solutions reduce the manual burden associated with COI management, improve policy compliance, provide improved transparency and decrease reputational risks.”
Using Big Data, the Kyruus solutions provide a centralized information platform that streamlines the full life cycle of relationship disclosure and COI assessment and management for a broad array of employed and affiliated medical staff members, researchers and others in the organization. Kyruus processes billions of public and proprietary data points to verify and improve the disclosure accuracy of existing significant financial interests. Pre-populated individualized profiles eliminate many redundant and manual steps, substantially reducing the effort involved in disclosure entry. With purpose-built solutions for engaging care providers and hospital administration, organizations can easily modify internal processes and adapt to meet new regulations with flexible workflows.
“Kyruus is honored that our Conflict of Interest Management solutions have earned the exclusive AHA Endorsement,” said Graham Gardner, CEO of Kyruus. “Health care transparency and the dynamic nature of new regulations require new solutions for leveraging data and using it to improve disclosure insight. We are deeply committed to helping physicians and hospitals optimize the ways in which they engage with the health care community and look forward to partnering with the AHA and its members.”
