TKG Healthcare Technologies announces it has signed an agreement with Adventist Health System (AHS) to provide RQi registration access software and services to 33 hospitals in nine states.

"Unlike competitors, RQi is the only web-based service that offers a combination of real-time and batch information processing," said Tim Reiner, Senior Revenue Officer for AHS. "Additionally, we feel the user interface is intuitive, simple, and something our end users can become adept with rapidly."

AHS also required a company with the experience to service a multi-hospital system. "The others did not have the framework in place to handle our 33 installations," said Reiner.

"By bringing correction to the front end of the revenue cycle, AHS can eliminate manual editing and the 'rework' usually required for claims to be submitted properly for reimbursement," said Chuck Kramer, president and CEO of TKG Healthcare Technologies. "AHS also gains an excellent training tool to improve accountability and empower staff."

RQi is a healthcare registration solution that detects and flags registration errors for correction upon admission and prior to discharge and billing. The software is based on Six Sigma process improvement methods and operates with a patent-pending rules engine and customized set of business rules. RQi provides 100 percent data accuracy, improved employee accountability, instinctive workflow, and immediate feedback to the user. Each system is customized on site to ensure maximum performance and customer satisfaction.

"Florida Hospital is extremely excited about RQi's real-time 100 percent registration error detection solution. We firmly believe this partnership with TKG will bring tremendous value to our organization and especially our front-end users," said Jeff Hurst, Vice President of Revenue Management.
