Bellevue, WA (PRWEB) October 30, 2013
Edifecs, Inc., a healthcare solutions provider specializing in healthcare information management and compliance technology, has been named to the Washington Green 50 list by Seattle Business Magazine.
The magazine’s Green Washington Awards program recognizes 50 leading companies in Washington State that are demonstrating an extraordinary commitment to making their business sustainable. Edifecs was honored for the impact its technology products have on the healthcare system, including automating business processes, removing unnecessary and costly resources and cutting back on paper transactions; as well as for its Corporate Sustainability program, which champions multiple “green” business practices within the walls of Edifecs’ Bellevue-based facility. Examples include reducing landfill waste by more than 75 percent per year and saving more than 30,000 kilowatt hours per year by installing LED energy-efficient light bulbs.
“Every employee at Edifecs is passionate about reducing the company’s carbon footprint, as well as that of Washington State’s, and plays a critical role in our Corporate Sustainability program—conservation is a core element of who we are as a company,” said Sunny Singh, CEO of Edifecs. “Much of that commitment is embodied in our mission to help healthcare organizations realize the potential for immense cost savings by reducing their reliance on paper and making the switch to electronic transactions.”
The transition to Electronic Data Interchange (EDI) technology has accelerated over the past decade, and Edifecs technology solutions play a major role in uptake across the healthcare industry. Edifecs’ health insurance customers each cover an average of 2 million members in the U.S and each plan member generates about 10 claims per year on average, totaling approximately 200 million claims per year—each comprising at least one piece of paper. Edifecs estimates that its technology solutions have helped to eliminate 180 billion pages of paper claims every year.
The 50 companies on the list and their rankings were announced at the 2013 Green Washington Awards Gala last night at the Washington State Convention Center.
Edifecs has been honored with multiple awards this year for its revenue growth and corporate culture, including:
