ZirMed Launches Analytics

Product Provides Intelligent Key Performance Indicators and Reports to Manage the Healthcare Revenue Cycle

LOUISVILLE, Ky., Jan. 2, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- ZirMed, Inc., a leading provider of software-as-a-service based revenue cycle management solutions, announced today that ZirMed will offer clients who subscribe to their industry-acclaimed Claims Management and Electronic Remittance Advice solutions - a free 60 day trial of Analytics.  ZirMed's new Analytics is an intelligent business solution to help healthcare providers effectively and efficiently manage their revenue cycle.

ZirMed's Analytics provides healthcare decision makers with insightful, detailed performance data featuring push Key Performance Indicators (KPIs), visually dynamic graphs and detailed reports of their practice's revenue cycle.  ZirMed has over a 150,000 National Provider Identifications (NPIs) and processes over a half a billion healthcare transactions a year across the nation.  Analytics utilizes de-identified data to benchmark individual provider measures against others in the industry.

"ZirMed's goal is to link providers, patients and payers to improve the flow of healthcare data and then capture each transaction to be the source of actionable insights and predictor of future outcomes.  We want our clients to try Analytics so they clearly see their practice's measurements and can identify areas that need improvement.  Making one simple change can yield a significant impact to a business, Analytics can be that consultative partner to enhance any practice's performance," says Tom Butts, CEO of ZirMed.

The power of ZirMed's Analytics identifies KPIs that are performing below the database's national averages and alerts decision makers to dive into their reports a little deeper.  If trends or issues need further research, Analytics has the capability of drilling down into a line-by-line review of the organization's business to uncover problem areas that can be corrected so decision makers can focus on continuous improvement and day-to-day operations.

"Our product development team has extensively researched which KPIs are most important to a healthcare provider's business. Providers are very busy and are responsible for many different functions; we want to simplify the financial management of their business and allow them to focus on providing patient care. Clients that subscribe to Analytics now have actionable alerts and easy to understand dynamic visuals integrated directly into our software. We've even provided the most relevant KPIs to our users on their home page so their performance is always up-front and center every time they log-in.  We actually leaked a view to some clients a few weeks ago and the response was tremendously positive.  We are excited to see the immediate impact that Analytics will have on our clients' businesses!" says Ric Sinclair, Director of Product Management and Development at ZirMed.

ZirMed's Analytics highlights reports and KPIs that cover $0 paid and denied claims, adjustments by procedure, payer and category codes, at risk procedure codes, average A/R days, patient ineligibility and financial responsibility and many other data points.  ZirMed is confident that regardless if it is an individual physician practice to an integrated delivery network, Analytics will provide valuable actionable insights into their business.

Clients on a 2012 KLAS Report said, "I like the reports that I get from ZirMed.  I have a dashboard that helps me work my claims and get the information I need.  ZirMed has been a great partner for our organization.  They have helped us maximize our efforts with great results."

"In a recent KLAS survey our customers rated us the highest among our peers in ICD-10 confidence with the fewest 5010 problems, strong reported A/R days, along with easy-to-use and highly rated claims and editing tools.  We are very happy that our clients see the value and innovation ZirMed brings to their business and there is no better recognition than when they share successes with their peers.  Our new Analytics Suite should continue making our clients some of the most satisfied in the industry," says Ken Edwards, VP of Client Support at ZirMed.

ZirMed clients can sign up for their 60 day free-trial of Analytics beginning January 2nd, 2013 by simply going to www.ZirMed.com or their homepage and register for full access to the tool.

"IoT is going to be a huge industry with a lot of value for end users, for industries, for consumers, for manufacturers. How can we use cloud to effectively manage IoT applications," stated Ian Khan, Innovation & Marketing Manager at Solgeniakhela, in this SYS-CON.tv interview at @ThingsExpo, held November 3-5, 2015, at the Santa Clara Convention Center in Santa Clara, CA.
Today we can collect lots and lots of performance data. We build beautiful dashboards and even have fancy query languages to access and transform the data. Still performance data is a secret language only a couple of people understand. The more business becomes digital the more stakeholders are interested in this data including how it relates to business. Some of these people have never used a monitoring tool before. They have a question on their mind like “How is my application doing” but no id...

In IT, we sometimes coin terms for things before we know exactly what they are and how they’ll be used. The resulting terms may capture a common set of aspirations and goals – as “cloud” did broadly for on-demand, self-service, and flexible computing. But such a term can also lump together diverse and even competing practices, technologies, and priorities to the point where important distinctions are glossed over and lost.
Predictive analytics tools monitor, report, and troubleshoot in order to make proactive decisions about the health, performance, and utilization of storage. Most enterprises combine cloud and on-premise storage, resulting in blended environments of physical, virtual, cloud, and other platforms, which justifies more sophisticated storage analytics. In his session at 18th Cloud Expo, Peter McCallum, Vice President of Datacenter Solutions at FalconStor, discussed using predictive analytics to mon...
All clouds are not equal. To succeed in a DevOps context, organizations should plan to develop/deploy apps across a choice of on-premise and public clouds simultaneously depending on the business needs. This is where the concept of the Lean Cloud comes in - resting on the idea that you often need to relocate your app modules over their life cycles for both innovation and operational efficiency in the cloud. In his session at @DevOpsSummit at19th Cloud Expo, Valentin (Val) Bercovici, CTO of Soli...
Information technology is an industry that has always experienced change, and the dramatic change sweeping across the industry today could not be truthfully described as the first time we've seen such widespread change impacting customer investments. However, the rate of the change, and the potential outcomes from today's digital transformation has the distinct potential to separate the industry into two camps: Organizations that see the change coming, embrace it, and successful leverage it; and...
Without a clear strategy for cost control and an architecture designed with cloud services in mind, costs and operational performance can quickly get out of control. To avoid multiple architectural redesigns requires extensive thought and planning. Boundary (now part of BMC) launched a new public-facing multi-tenant high resolution monitoring service on Amazon AWS two years ago, facing challenges and learning best practices in the early days of the new service. In his session at 19th Cloud Exp...
The Internet of Things (IoT) promises to simplify and streamline our lives by automating routine tasks that distract us from our goals. This promise is based on the ubiquitous deployment of smart, connected devices that link everything from industrial control systems to automobiles to refrigerators. Unfortunately, comparatively few of the devices currently deployed have been developed with an eye toward security, and as the DDoS attacks of late October 2016 have demonstrated, this oversight can ...
Extracting business value from Internet of Things (IoT) data doesn’t happen overnight. There are several requirements that must be satisfied, including IoT device enablement, data analysis, real-time detection of complex events and automated orchestration of actions. Unfortunately, too many companies fall short in achieving their business goals by implementing incomplete solutions or not focusing on tangible use cases. In his general session at @ThingsExpo, Dave McCarthy, Director of Products...
Regulatory requirements exist to promote the controlled sharing of information, while protecting the privacy and/or security of the information. Regulations for each type of information have their own set of rules, policies, and guidelines. Cloud Service Providers (CSP) are faced with increasing demand for services at decreasing prices. Demonstrating and maintaining compliance with regulations is a nontrivial task and doing so against numerous sets of regulatory requirements can be daunting task...
Fact: storage performance problems have only gotten more complicated, as applications not only have become largely virtualized, but also have moved to cloud-based infrastructures. Storage performance in virtualized environments isn’t just about IOPS anymore. Instead, you need to guarantee performance for individual VMs, helping applications maintain performance as the number of VMs continues to go up in real time. In his session at Cloud Expo, Dhiraj Sehgal, Product and Marketing at Tintri, sha...

More and more brands have jumped on the IoT bandwagon. We have an excess of wearables – activity trackers, smartwatches, smart glasses and sneakers, and more that track seemingly endless datapoints. However, most consumers have no idea what “IoT” means. Creating more wearables that track data shouldn't be the aim of brands; delivering meaningful, tangible relevance to their users should be. We're in a period in which the IoT pendulum is still swinging. Initially, it swung toward "smart for smar...
