New Enclarity Solution Dramatically Reduces Time Spent Searching for Healthcare Provider Information

ProviderLookup Enables Health Plan to Increase Claims Research Productivity by 66 Percent

ALISO VIEJO, CA--(Marketwire - January 28, 2008) - Enclarity Inc., a leading healthcare information solutions company, has introduced ProviderLookup™, a Web-based offering that enables healthcare payers and others to access the industry's most correct, current and comprehensive source of provider information in real-time. ProviderLookup solves a healthcare industrywide problem for people who spend unnecessary time searching multiple databases for critical information about individual healthcare providers.

"There is a huge industry need for a powerful, easy-to-use solution that offers all types of healthcare professionals real-time access to detailed information on healthcare providers from a trusted source," said Sean Downs, president and chief executive officer, Enclarity. "ProviderLookup is a single solution that delivers the provider information healthcare professionals need, whenever they need it. With ProviderLookup and their Web browser, our clients can significantly improve productivity and reduce operating costs."

ProviderLookup revolutionizes a process that once took multiple searches in different databases into a fast, easy-to-use search through a single trusted source of accurate and complete provider information. Its powerful search engine allows payers to query Enclarity's Master Provider Referential Database of more than 140 million records for a variety of important needs. Clients can streamline claims verification and updating, internal provider records maintenance, credentialing research and returned mail research. ProviderLookup also lets users access detailed information for all provider types, including doctors, chiropractors, physical therapists and more.

A major health plan is using ProviderLookup to successfully battle a growing influx of out-of-state claims. On average, the solution has reduced the research time needed to verify provider information on these fall-out claims by 66 percent. As a result, the client was able to reduce research time on out-of-state providers on average from 32 minutes per provider to just 11 minutes per provider.

Featuring a user-friendly, Web-based interface, ProviderLookup is a one-stop, subscription-based research solution for all types of provider information, including demographic data, multiple provider locations, verification of key identifiers (UPIN, DEA, TIN, NPI, etc.), as well as hospital affiliations and credentials (medical school, sanctions, specialty/taxonomy, etc.). Enclarity's Master Provider Referential Database is continuously updated, eliminating the need to search multiple sources and significantly reducing the operating costs associated with the research needed to find and verify a provider.

Enclarity will demonstrate ProviderLookup at the American Association of Preferred Provider Organizations (AAPPO) Annual Forum, Jan. 28 and 29 in Marco Island, Fla.
