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.

In the world of DevOps there are ‘known good practices’ – aka ‘patterns’ – and ‘known bad practices’ – aka ‘anti-patterns.' Many of these patterns and anti-patterns have been developed from real world experience, especially by the early adopters of DevOps theory; but many are more feasible in theory than in practice, especially for more recent entrants to the DevOps scene. In this power panel at @DevOpsSummit at 18th Cloud Expo, moderated by DevOps Conference Chair Andi Mann, panelists will dis...
The increasing popularity of the Internet of Things necessitates that our physical and cognitive relationship with wearable technology will change rapidly in the near future.

If there is anything we have learned by now, is that every business paves their own unique path for releasing software- every pipeline, implementation and practices are a bit different, and DevOps comes in all shapes and sizes. Software delivery practices are often comprised of set of several complementing (or even competing) methodologies – such as leveraging Agile, DevOps and even a mix of ITIL, to create the combination that’s most suitable for your organization and that maximize your busines...
Up until last year, enterprises that were looking into cloud services usually undertook a long-term pilot with one of the large cloud providers, running test and dev workloads in the cloud. With cloud’s transition to mainstream adoption in 2015, and with enterprises migrating more and more workloads into the cloud and in between public and private environments, the single-provider approach must be revisited. In his session at 18th Cloud Expo, Yoav Mor, multi-cloud solution evangelist at Cloudy...
