XIFIN®, Inc., announces an agreement with SunAlliance Healthcare Services of Escondido, Calif. to install and deliver its comprehensive infrastructure management system and services for their laboratory billing operations.
Like most health care providers, laboratory billing departments have been losing ground in their efforts to effectively and efficiently manage their accounts receivable. The costs have been enormous, not only in bad debt and burgeoning administrative costs, but also in compliance liabilities as well as management time. The challenge has been caused by inadequate systems and infrastructure to manage and support the process. HIPAA, and now the Sarbanes-Oxley Act significantly add to their already overwhelming burden.
Web-based technologies have created completely new options that provide much more than software. Besides delivering continuously managed expert applications that transform the processing and management of the entire billing process, XIFIN contracts, tightly integrates, and manages the complete set of transaction related services and resources necessary to manage a claim from order entry through payment posting.
"XIFIN was the obvious choice," remarked Jenny Clarke, president of SunAlliance Healthcare Services. "We initially sought-out XIFIN assistance because of their preeminent knowledge of large laboratory AR management. What we found was a unique offering that delivers real-time expertise to our billing staff’s desktops and continuously managed systems and services. Existing software solutions cannot begin to match what XIFIN delivers with their standard offering."
"SunAlliance Healthcare Services decision to embrace XIFIN’s approach for managing financial resources is yet another example of a well-run health care provider recognizing the inherent inadequacy of existing billing software solutions," noted Lale White, CEO of XIFIN. "Software is limited by the state of technology and the experience set of its developer. Our use of expert services embedded throughout the workflow fills these gaps, creating a richer, more complete solution."
