Our solution will output data as an XML file that can be quickly and easily utilized by HERAE to integrate with existing client systems.
El Paso, TX (PRWEB) July 28, 2009
HERAE, one of the nation's largest healthcare payment services providers, has awarded DATAMARK, Inc., a leading provider of business process outsourcing services, a contract to provide data entry services for HERAE's Direct Deposit for Healthcare® electronic payment system, more specifically HERAE's paper conversion process.
HERAE (pronounced "hurray") offers a HIPAA-compliant payment process that leverages DATAMARK's onshore, near-shore and far-shore outsourcing centers located in El Paso, Texas, Juarez Mexico and Chennai India, to electronically process payments from insurers to healthcare providers' accounts. Scanned images of HIPAA 835 transactions (also referred to as "Explanation of Benefits" or "EOBs") are transmitted to DATAMARK, where claim and transaction data are keyed over a secure connection. Browser-based keying allows data to be entered from multiple locations, improving overall processing time and providing multiple cost options based on the client's preference for where the data entry services are performed.
"The solution we developed for HERAE had to be extremely versatile to not only accommodate a wide variety of non-standard EOB formats, but also to universally integrate with the company's existing databases," said Nina Brown, DATAMARK Project Manager. "Our solution will output data as an XML file that can be quickly and easily utilized by HERAE to integrate with existing client systems."
"Manually processing claim payments and following up on exceptions is time consuming and costly for healthcare providers. It is now the single largest administrative expense for the typical provider," said HERAE Paper Conversion Manager Ron Yeshulas. "HERAE's paperless payment processing system completes the payment to deposit cycle within 24-48 hours - reducing costs by up to two-thirds. DATAMARK, one of the top BPO service providers in the industry, provides data entry and validation processes for HERAE's paper conversion process so HERAE can complete claim payment transactions electronically, ensuring speed and accuracy of service for our provider customers."
