Payer & Government Initiatives
Aprima is your partner in navigating a changing regulatory landscape. Here are some examples of how Aprima is helping physicians address the latest updates from government and payers.
Aprima gives providers the EHR interoperability tools they need to connect with patient data in the way that works best for them, and, just as importantly, those with whom they need to connect. Whether that is with a point to point interface, integration with a Health Information Exchange (HIE), direct messaging, or with participation in our national network partners' programs such as Surescripts and CommonWell.
Healthcare organizations are working hard to move from paper-based, manual processes to streamlined digital workflows to handle faxes. Aprima users can centralize all fax workflows into a single solution, integrated into Aprima for optimal efficiency and interoperability. Inbound fax workflows can be routed, processed and filed to the patient chart. Outbound faxes are sent directly from Aprima.
Aprima makes interoperability simple for doctors by making patient data available quickly and in real time. Whether sending or receiving, Aprima has you covered. Learn more about Aprima Interoperability.
Revenue Cycle Management Support
Aprima Revenue Cycle Management (RCM) is an optional solution that combines smart technology with healthcare billing expertise to seamlessly manage your practice’s entire revenue process - from eligibility checking, to over 20 million claim edits achieving 98% clean claim rates, to appealing denied claims, to money in your bank account!
Every RCM customer has a U.S.-based team working on their behalf which includes an Account Manager and billing staff. Your billing team will use an in-depth knowledge of FQHC guidelines, sliding fee schedules, and UDS reporting to support your revenue cycle.
What Aprima Users Have to Say
“It’s all about timing. It all has to be quick. I can’t have bills set out for months. If we can get a clean claim out and get paid in 14 days, that’s very important. The providers have to finish their notes in a timely way so that we can get a claim out quickly. So we switched from NextGen to Aprima EHR [electronic health record] in November 2014. We had Synergy Billing. And in February, we switched to Aprima Billing. And that’s been very helpful for us; they know their own EHR; they’ve been able to streamline our process, to get the claims out the door and to lower our days in AR. You’re right, I don’t have excess cash sitting in the bank for a rainy-day fund. We have to pay our bills.”
