Medical Business Applications, an Applications Service Provider of financial management systems for healthcare service providers, Thursday announced its name change in preparation for the commercial launch of its next generation billing and claims management system.
The new name, XIFIN, and corporate identity reflect the company’s focus on leading edge technology for managing complex financial transactions in healthcare.

The system is in Beta testing with American Medical Laboratories (AML) and will be commercially released during the second quarter of this year.
"XIFIN has brought a fresh and needed approach to billing and claims management. We believe this partnership will greatly enhance our service to our clients, while improving operational efficiency, and profitability," said Jack Bergstrom, executive vice president, AML. "Through this relationship I anticipate completely new capabilities from our billing system that will provide important competitive advantages through improved patient care and better information."
"We’re looking forward to working with AML to further validate our technology and value proposition," said Lale White, CEO of XIFIN. "Our new name and identity is more consistent with our e-health strategy and communicates our focus on financial management solutions using sophisticated database and Internet technology."
