MINNEAPOLIS, April 16, 2014 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- ABILITY Network Inc, a leading healthcare technology company, announced today that over 9,000 hospitals, skilled nursing facilities, home healthcare, and hospice providers across the United States are now using ABILITY | EASE to manage their Medicare reimbursement activities.
ABILITY | EASE is a ground-breaking workflow management service that simplifies time-consuming Medicare Direct Data Entry (DDE) processes and gives providers more control over their cash flow. Providers using ABILITY | EASE receive advance alerts for receivables at risk, have easy eligibility look-ups, and use a simple, automated process to correct complex and multi-step claims.
Wisteria Gardens, a skilled nursing facility in Mississippi, saw a dramatic improvement in their revenue management when they implemented ABILITY | EASE. For Billing Manager Andrew Allison, one of the most significant benefits has been the ability to now have access to revenue status information. "The automated reports are great. One report tells me what we can expect to be paid in the next two days. In the old DDE system, we had to log in all the time to check on each Medicare claim, if we wanted to stay on top of things." Allison now receives a complete picture of Wisteria's cash flow very quickly from the automated daily report he receives from ABILITY | EASE.
"I check my email every morning," Allison said. "The report from ABILITY tells me the amount of dollars coming in, the number of claims that went through, and here's a claim that I might have to watch. It keeps us in line."
Constant changes in the healthcare industry require that providers continue to streamline their revenue cycle process in order to remain competitive. ABILITY | EASE was designed to give providers more control over their revenue stream and increase their operational efficiency.
"Providers are always under pressure to reduce waste and maximize revenue," said Bud Meadows, Executive Vice President of ABILITY. "An intuitive workflow technology like ABILITY | EASE can help bring about improvements very quickly."
