Waltham, MA (PRWEB) March 28, 2013

Connance, Inc. (http://www.connance.com), a provider of innovative, predictive analytic-based programs that improve financial performance in healthcare enterprises, has joined the HFMA Healthcare Medical Debt Collections Task Force as a founding member. The goal of the Task Force is to identify a common set of medical debt collection practices that can be standardized for widespread industry adoption that will lead to improvement in the overall collection process, the patient experience, and financial performance resulting in a fair collection process for patients.

Connance was invited to join the task force in recognition of its proven track record of aiding providers and their revenue cycle vendors with self-pay revenue collection. The advisory group will be comprised of approximately 15 20 finance and revenue cycle senior leaders representative of community hospitals, safety net hospitals, academic hospitals, large physician clinics, large healthcare systems and other key stakeholders such as ACA International, credit bureaus and collection agencies, and groups representing patients. We want to thank Connance for their support of this remarkable endeavor, said Richard Gundling, HFMA Vice-President. Forging partnerships with strong leaders like Connance creates new opportunities and exciting new possibilities. We expect that Connance will continue to contribute innovative ideas to the industry and aid the Task Force immensely.

We are very proud to have been invited to be a founding member of the HFMA Healthcare Medical Debt Collections Task Force, said Steve Levin, CEO of Connance. We believe the leadership that HFMA is taking here will be welcomed and we look forward to engaging with other senior finance leaders to help to establish and advocate for medical debt best practices. Healthcare debt is a growing issue for consumers and the more the industry can do to lead and set standards the more we can expect consumers to understand fully their obligations and assume an appropriate level of engagement and responsibility.

The Task Force advisory group will compare current processes of medical debt collections by the various constituents, document workflows from initial bill to closure of account to identify inconsistencies in process and process gaps resulting in negative experience for the patient, as well as identify pros and cons of variations in process flows to support the groups conclusions. Based on these findings, the Task Force will develop a best practice medical debt collection process and ensure that the work flows it develops can be adopted by the majority of healthcare providers and medical debt partners with minimal increase in resource consumption. Then the Task Force will seek input on its research and recommendations from other key medical debt stakeholders representing providers, credit bureaus, collection agencies, and patients.

Salem, NH (PRWEB) April 10, 2014

Alicare Medical Management (AMM), a national leader in care management solutions that promotes cost savings and client satisfaction, is celebrating 20 years of meeting URACs quality-based standards.

URAC sets the industry standard for quality in the health care arena, so we are extremely proud to hold four URAC accreditations for our programs, says Claire Levitt, president of Alicare Medical Management. The fact we have met URACs quality standards for two decades reflects our undying commitment to providing top-tier services to our clients. AMM holds URAC-approved accreditation for its Utilization Management, Case Management, 24/7 Nurse Helpline and Independent Review services.

Receiving its first URAC accreditation in 1994 for the Health Utilization Management Accreditation Program, Alicare Medical Management has served as a resource and beta test site to URAC for several other URAC accreditation programs, including Case Management, Health Call Center, and Independent Review Standards.

By applying for and receiving URAC accreditation for 20 years, Alicare Medical Management has demonstrated a commitment to quality healthcare, says Kylanne Green, URAC president and CEO. Quality healthcare is crucial to our nations welfare and it is important to have organizations that are willing to measure themselves against national standards and undergo rigorous evaluation by an independent accrediting body.

URAC, an independent, nonprofit organization, is a well-known leader in promoting healthcare quality through its accreditation, education, and measurement programs. URAC offers a wide range of quality benchmarking programs and services that model the rapid changes in the healthcare system and provide a symbol of excellence for organizations to validate their commitment to quality and accountability.

Alicare Medical Management has helped URAC develop an array of quality standards over the years. According to Garry Carneal, JD, MA, former URAC president & CEO, Alicare Medical Management has been a leading innovator in the care management field for decades, so it was a natural fit to look to them to better understand emerging trends as URAC developed new accreditation programs. Among other contributions, Alicare Medical Management provided critical insights on how case management and 24/7 nurse triage programs should be run and operated when URAC was developing accreditation programs covering those activities.

URAC takes a collaborative, educational approach to accreditation. During the application process, customer service and support is available to provide assistance to applicants. New applicants are encouraged to attend a standards workshop where they can learn more about the standards and the process first hand. URAC accreditation requires applicants to submit policies, procedures and other organizational information to URAC followed by an onsite review. Once an application is received by URAC, a primary reviewer is assigned and coordinates all aspects of the review until completion.

One of the essential security services needed to safeguard online transactions is flaxen exchange. In e-Medical transaction protocols two parties can exchange their signatures in a fair manner, so that either each party gain the other’s signature or no one obtain anything useful. This Thesis examines security solutions for achieving e-Medical transactions among Patient/Doctor/PMHIP/Bank. It proposes new security protocols based on the “Rebalanced Multi-Prime Jordan-Totient–RSA Cryptosystem and Signature Scheme “. This thesis concentrates on security solutions for achieving Threshold e-Medical transactions in e-Medical Health Insurance System applications, Threshold contract signing and Threshold certified delivery of valuable data. A Threshold reasonable contract signing protocol allows two potentially mistrusted parities to exchange their commitments (i.e., digital signatures) to an agreed contract over the Internet in a fair way, so that either each of them obtains the other’s signature, or neither party does.
