Infor Healthcare Applications to Unify Financials at the Institute for Transfusion Medicine

ITxM Experiences Enhanced Billing Efficiency With Infor Healthcare Revenue Management

NEW YORK, NY--(Marketwire - Oct 16, 2012) - Infor, a leading provider of business application software serving more than 70,000 customers, today announced the Institute for Transfusion Medicine (ITxM), one of the nation's foremost providers of transfusion medicine and related services, has upgraded to the latest version of Infor Healthcare Revenue Management to integrate its outpatient records and core receivalbes systems into a single, unified solution. With the functionality to manage both client and patient billing, the application will help reduce manual entry requirements and automate billing to help the company complete financial processes more efficiently. In addition, the upgrade will allow ITxM to benefit from the latest platform enhancements and facilitate enriched system support.

News Points

  • ITxM will migrate its patient billing from a third-party system to Infor Healthcare Revenue Management, helping to simplify billing processes by consolidating data and enabling the business to establish automated rule-based workflows for payments.
  • ITxM needed the flexibility to accommodate both large facility customers and individual patients without sacrificing functionality. The Infor healthcare solution allows ITxM to bill based on an individual product or service code, or bill for multiple products and services using a single code, depending on the specific need.
  • Infor Healthcare Revenue Management provides the ability to segregate functions within the system based on defined user roles. This facilitates easier system access monitoring and allows ITxM to delegate billing activities to users outside the finance department by limiting the information available for viewing, enabling more efficient, faster completion of billing processes.
  • Infor's application will also enable enhanced scalability and continuity in reporting so ITxM can easily comply with regulatory billing and electronic transaction rules.

ITxM Quote
"Prior to our Infor upgrade it was difficult to track and process payments because users had to access separate systems to obtain the necessary data," said Keir Josephson, director, IT Strategy & Delivery, ITxM. "Now our entire outpatient records system is integrated with our core receivable system, enabling us to manage our billing processes, whether patient or client, within a single, unified solution."
