ZirMed and Stockell Healthcare Systems Announce Partnership to Provide End-to-End Revenue Cycle Solutions to Hospital Market

Automated, Integrated Solution Greatly Reduces the Need for Manual Claims Scrubbing

LOUISVILLE, KY--(Marketwire - Sep 8, 2011) - ZirMed, a nationally recognized provider of revenue management solutions for the healthcare industry, is pleased to announce a preferred business partnership with Stockell Healthcare Systems, provider of InsightCS®, an innovative Revenue Cycle Information System (RCIS) to Hospitals, Health Care Enterprises, and Integrated Healthcare Networks (IHNs).

Through this partnership, ZirMed's Revenue Cycle Management Solutions are seamlessly integrated with InsightCS® Revenue Cycle Information System (RCIS) allowing healthcare service providers to replace the traditional "bill in one system, correct claims in a different system" approach with an automated process.

"By implementing the integrated solutions, Stockell Healthcare Systems will provide their hospital, health care enterprise, and integrated health network (IHN) clients with a total revenue solution to follow patients from point-of-encounter through payment for rendered care, eliminating duplication of work efforts and allowing for focus on patient care -- providing benefits for the healthcare providers and their patients," said Sara Hines, Vice President of Partner Sales, ZirMed.

Through innovative features included in the automated process, any failed claims edits and rejections are routed back to the InsightCS® Billing solution, where they can be addressed and corrected just once without the same issues reoccurring for subsequent claims submissions.

Also, under the partnership, Stockell Healthcare Systems will offer InsightCS® clients a full EDI solution suite including eligibility, electronic remittance, virtual credit/debit card processing, patient invoice e-delivery, lockbox services, and on-line patient portal access for billing inquiries, online bill pay, and management of automated payment plans.

"This approach is truly groundbreaking when compared to other offerings in the healthcare marketplace today," stated Rick Stockell, President of Stockell Healthcare Systems, "We fully anticipate seeing a significant increase in productivity and a positive impact on what is currently being spent by the hospitals in regard to claims submission fees."

The first joint Stockell Healthcare Systems-ZirMed client to take advantage of this new offering is Emerus Emergency Hospitals based in The Woodlands, Texas. Emerus' five emergency hospitals serve patients in both Dallas and Houston, with their implementation of InsightCS® and the new ZirMed Claims Management automated solution integration being a significant part of a major data management initiative designed to benefit patients and payers while streamlining the organization's records and documentation processes.
