XIFIN’, Inc., announced its selection today by Sonora Quest Laboratories as its revenue cycle management solution. Six of the ten largest labs in the US are now XIFIN clients.
Sonora Quest Laboratories, a leader in the adoption of new technologies and business processes, recognizes the benefits from next generation, web-based systems and services like XIFIN.
XIFIN is the only revenue cycle management solution available to diagnostic testing and radiological services providers that leverages the broad capabilities of Software as a Service (SaaS) and Web Services to solve the complex problems of healthcare billing and accounts receivable management. Web Services drives Service Oriented Architecture (SOA) throughout the network enabling advanced business processes. Indeed, XIFIN extends the life and capabilities of interfaced legacy enterprise systems.
While SaaS has rapidly gained acceptance in many sectors of Corporate America, healthcare providers have been slow to abandon traditional software. Sonora Quest Laboratories’ decision strengthens its leadership position and creates competitive advantages by embracing a proven and innovative business platform.
"Given the complexity of healthcare billing, especially in the lab industry, SaaS will help us leverage external expertise without replicating resources in house," notes David Lutich, CFO of Sonora Quest Laboratories. "By utilizing the rules-based engines inherent in the XIFIN software, we will see efficiencies in our process, improvements in our reimbursement and revenue cycle, plus enhancements in our reporting capabilities. With these improvements, we expect to see an immediate return on our SaaS expenditures."
"XIFIN was designed to meet the needs of the largest labs with regards to volume and complexity," said Lâle White, Executive Chairman of XIFIN. "Sonora Quest’s deployment of Web 2.0 systems and services will shake up the competition by setting new standards for managing a major clinical lab."
