This is the second consecutive year that IntelliSource has achieved this ranking.
"We are honored to be a part of KLAS' 2013 rankings, especially knowing that our customers submitted valuable feedback to solidify the category leader position again this year," said Scott MacKenzie, CEO at Passport. "We believe that these designations are a testament to our dedication in providing quality products and services that drive efficiency for our clients.

An integrated, rules-based workflow system, IntelliSource is the platform that supports Passport's entire patient access suite of products and services.

Passport's next-generation Software-as-a-Service–based product, eCare NEXT®, is built from the IntelliSource platform. eCare NEXT offers a work queue–driven, fully integrated platform that uses Touchless Processing™ to intelligently automate revenue cycle workflows and financially clear patients.

The resulting benefit is significant in that it optimizes payment certainty across all patients while giving healthcare providers the ability to manage all orders, scheduling, registration and financial clearance through a single business partner. eCare NEXT also supports population health management initiatives by streamlining workflow, identifying and managing specialty members at the point of service, and reducing readmissions.
