This software has provided end-to-end encounter lifecycle management across lines of business for over 750 million encounter submissions annually with first pass rates of over 99%. These outstanding results are a testament to our team. We’re honored to be named as a finalist in the Fierce Innovation Awards and proud of our team for their commitment to this platform.”
