CHICAGO, June 13, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- The Healthcare Financial Management Association (HFMA) today announced that, following rigorous review, The SSI Group has once again achieved the "Peer Reviewed by HFMA®" standard for its SSI Billing.
Streamlined claims processing is an essential component to successful revenue cycle management. SSI Billing enables providers to adopt an automated approach to the billing process through the electronic editing, validation and submission of institutional and professional claims. The solution's edits, coupled with extensive payer connections via the SSI clearinghouse, enable organizations to optimize revenue and react appropriately to changes in reimbursement criteria.
"We're honored to be recognized for the HFMA Peer Review Designation for the sixth consecutive year," said Jimmy Lyons, President and CEO of SSI. "Continuing to meet HFMA's rigorous requirements shows our commitment to our clients and the consistent quality of our solutions."
HFMA's Peer Review process provides healthcare financial managers with an objective third party evaluation of products and services used in the healthcare workplace. The rigorous, eleven-step process includes a Peer Review panel review comprised of current clients, prospects who have not made a purchase, and industry experts. Peer Review status of the product or service and its performance claims are based on effectiveness, quality and usability, price, value, and customer and technical support.
"We're pleased to have SSI renew their HFMA Peer Reviewed designation," says HFMA President and CEO Joseph J. Fifer, FHFMA, CPA. "The HFMA Peer Review process assures our members, through a rigorous evaluation, that the reviewed product or service meets an objective third-party assessment of overall effectiveness, quality, and value."
