Industry Initiatives Enabled


Payers need to connect to new partners such as public and private exchanges. These partners exchange enrollment and payment data that consists of multiple transaction types such as additions, changes and full-file audit


Interoperability is fundamental for scaling population health initiatives. This creates requirements to integrate clinical data from multiple sources into a single comprehensive view of the patient


Measuring value requires exchanging clinical outcomes for comparison to previous year and industry norms. Value Based Reimbursement also requires the exchange of budget, member attribution data, etc., for successful administration


Reducing administrative costs requires automation and use of standards prescribed by HIPAA, CAQH CORE, etc.   Administrative simplification streamlines payer / provider processes by increasing automation rates
