ABILITY(R) Network Platform Technology Exceeds 40,000 Healthcare Users


MINNEAPOLIS, March 13, 2014 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- More than 40,000 individuals in hospitals, skilled nursing facilities, home healthcare, and hospice agencies across the United States are taking advantage of expanded features in the myABILITYTM portal from ABILITY Network. The portal, a Software-as-a-Service (SaaS) platform, provides on-demand access to Medicare connectivity, revenue cycle management and eligibility services.

ABILITY, a leading healthcare technology company, announced that with recent updates the myABILITY platform "has been transformed into a productivity engine," according to Bud Meadows, Executive Vice President at ABILITY.

The latest advances to the platform feature a user-friendly interface with a single sign-on login and ID. With only one screen to access, the myABILITY portal delivers a significant time-savings for financial, patient access, scheduling and administrative healthcare staff.

"Single sign-on is great – before, there were three screens I had to deal with. That's a big improvement right there!" said Jennifer Holland, Billing Specialist, of Taylor Rural Health in Kentucky. She added that the myABILITY workspace "is all very straightforward and much easier to use than my previous communications program."

Another productivity feature in the new myABILITY is customizable user-management, which allows the healthcare facility to set up different profiles and permission levels among staff who need to access information. With this update, the various tasks in the revenue cycle management process can be specifically assigned to the people who will carry them out, helping with prioritization and avoiding overlap.

"The goal is to increase flexibility and control," said Meadows. "Admissions and billing are two of the biggest, most complicated and important business tasks facing organizations. The new myABILITY platform streamlines, simplifies, and gives more control to the people who need it. If busy staff can work more efficiently, it reduces waste and increases revenue."
