Halifax Health Drives Clean Claims With Automated Healthcare Claims Management

Integrated, exception-based reimbursement management and analytics solutions track claim status, providing visibility into revenue cycle performance.

“To stay right in step with the insurance companies, we have to be proactive. We create edits to make sure that the claims go out correctly according to the way the insurance wants to be billed the first time.”
