Experian Health launches Coverage Discovery on demand
Experian Health, a healthcare industry leader for automating, integrating and innovating the revenue cycle, announced that its Coverage Discovery on demand tool is now integrated into Epic’s EMR environment. Coverage Discovery enables Experian Health clients to proactively reclassify uncompensated care by alerting them of patient coverage across both government and commercial payers using advanced analytics, and our proprietary coverage-optimization engine. Coverage Discovery on demand provides Epic clients with additional opportunities to find coverage early in the revenue cycle, avoiding the downstream complications and costs associated with missed insurance coverage.
“We are seeing an increasing number of providers pushing their discovery process closer to the encounter to reduce accounts receivable days, ensuring that additional processes such as authorization can be completed in a timely manner,” said Scott Bagwell, president of Experian Health. “By adding the on demand option, Experian Health clients can now run Coverage Discovery within their Epic workflow, which will help to reduce errors, save time and ultimately improve their revenue cycle. Every dollar found in our proactive, automated Coverage Discovery solution is a dollar that our clients are not spending chasing patients for payments, paying for expensive collection agencies or writing off as bad debt.”
