Branford, CT (PRWEB) September 20, 2017
Clariti Health has launched a new platform to help ASCs, specialty hospitals and surgeons address trends in reimbursement and quality management. Clariti Founder and CEO Scott Palmer, and his team, have developed a cloud based offering that will engage patients regarding their financial responsibility for upcoming cases, and combine that with quality measurement tools to help facilities thrive in the new healthcare environment.
"We recognize that we are in the midst of a very important shift towards fee for value that will continue to put added pressures on providers and patients. High deductible and self-funded plans have effectively made patients and employers payors. Also, patient financial transparency is not only required in some states but a good business practice for ASCs seeking to add case volume," said Palmer. "We have worked with leading ASC consultants, management companies and service providers to understand their challenges and have come up with a fantastic solution that is affordable and easy to implement."
Clariti helps ASCs and specialty hospitals by using the payor contracts, real-time eligibility and payment history to create a credible and easy to understand estimate, from which patients can engage with the facility to make payment arrangements. Clariti’s estimator supports facility and professional fees, implants, and bundled arrangements. Business office staff and financial counselors appreciate spending their time supporting patients who have received an electronic estimate – versus having the difficult tasks of calculating or estimating the patient’s co-insurance and coverage, tracking down current deductibles, co-pays, and out of pocket maximums, and then trying to reach the patient. Clariti takes these burdens off facility staff with a simple, monthly subscription that includes managing the facility's payor contracts and manages all aspects of payor estimation.
In addition, Clariti can assist facilities and surgeons with Clariti Quote, allowing facilities and surgeons to provide very accurate quotes to patients who may be comparing prices. High deductible and self-funded plans, as well as companies that are seeking to make healthcare pricing more transparent, are driving patients to compare pricing. Clariti Quote allows facilities and surgeons to provide patients and employers with accurate estimates of out of pocket costs.
Beyond the financial tools, Clariti is deploying patient reported outcomes and experience surveying. "Facilities and providers seeking to be recognized as leading providers in their markets need information to back that up,” noted Palmer. "We are excited about the possibility of offering patient reported outcomes to follow through with patients regarding their progress and outcomes, better allowing clinicians to direct care." Clariti Outcomes follows up with patients using industry standard or customized survey templates to provide information back to providers, while Clariti Experience combines the outcomes information with the overall patient experience feedback into a single repository.
