The Woodlands, Texas (PRWEB) June 10, 2015
Cardon Outreach, one of the largest providers of eligibility and revenue cycle services, will unveil an enhanced version of its proprietary MPOWER technology at the HFMA National Institute (ANI) this month. The three day conference, set for June 22 in Orlando, features hundreds of businesses focused on the needs of hospitals and their bottom lines.
Cardon Outreach’s MPOWER software system has created revenue cycle success for clients with its robust scanning processes for multiple service lines and one centralized location for detailed patient information. Software updates are made at regular intervals to provide enhanced opportunities for hospitals and healthcare providers to recoup even more revenue. MPOWER supports Cardon Outreach’s service lines for Eligibility, Disability, Accounts Receivable Services and Early Out. The result is a streamlined approach to contacting patients, collecting data and quickly scanning hundreds of county, state, federal and other special programs using the most effective data combinations in the industry. These efficiencies result in increased revenue and reduced bad debt for the clients of Cardon Outreach.
“Our combination of people and technology sets us apart from competitors,” said Cardon Outreach President Doug Barry. “We employ our proprietary technology and hospital-based staff to increase hospital profitability and create an experience that provides patients with ongoing access to healthcare and increased satisfaction.”
Under Cardon Outreach’s proprietary services, self-pay patients are interviewed at their hospital bedside whenever possible to determine if they are eligible for any type of program. Often times, patients do not know about the programs available to them, or aren’t sure about how to apply for them. Cardon Outreach works closely with each patient to gather the information necessary for a successful application submission and continues to work with the patient until a decision has been made.
For Cardon Outreach’s Disability service line, MPOWER utilizes a proprietary algorithm that quickly determines which patients are most likely to qualify for Social Security Disability based on a combination of patient interview information and demographic data. This quick search also allows for moving patients who will most likely not be eligible for disability to another possible option for coverage.
“It’s clear that the patient experience is simplified when a single platform is used to gather information,” said Michael Gleason, Senior Vice President and CFO for UF Health Jacksonville, a client of Cardon Outreach for five years. “The hospital benefits from having real time visibility to the metrics that matter most to us,” said Gleason.
While Cardon Outreach has an industry-leading success rate for finding program coverage, every patient ultimately is not matched with an appropriate program. In these cases, Cardon Outreach’s Early Out services offer the most efficient and patient-friendly way to communicate and track the results of those communications. The methods utilized by Cardon Outreach for Early Out patients are often utilized under the hospital brand to ensure that patients have a satisfactory experience that reflects positively on the location where they received their care.
