H.I.M. ON CALL answers hospitals' finance needs for stronger DNFB management with AVIANCEHealth™September 30, 2011 | Industry News Release
H.I.M. ON CALL, a technology and outsourcing services company for health information management (HIM), coding and revenue cycle, announced the availability of its latest AVIANCEHealth™ technology solution, AVIANCEDNFB Management today at the American Health Information Management Association (AHIMA) Convention and Exhibit at the Salt Palace Convention Center in Salt Lake City, Utah. The announcement was made by Joseph J. Gurrieri, RHIA, CHP, Vice President and COO.
According to customers already using the software, the ability to assemble all discharged-not-final-billed (DNFB) for all inpatient and outpatient accounts into a single repository, sort, trend, electronically track and assign accounts saves hours of work and prevents denials. "We can identify all our unbilled accounts for one insurance type with a click of the mouse," mentions Regina A. Blakeslee, MPA, RHIA, CTR, Healthcare Leadership Consultant. Furthermore, the system helps Blakeslee meet all billing deadlines and eliminates manually creating and manipulating reports.
"Hospital CFOs need the ability to understand what "is" and then apply predictive modeling to know what "will be" as payer rules change and revenue models transform in accountable care and value-based purchasing," mentions Gurrieri. The new software does this as well as creating a notes journal that alerts users to all account changes. Everyone involved in the coding and billing cycle stays connected, informed and aware of DNFB activity -- saving research time and eliminating telephone tag between departments.
