CHICAGO, Oct. 6 /PRNewswire/ -- Experiencing speed and efficiency in the healthcare process remains a rarity. Now two companies are adding those essential variables to ensure healthy, accurate outcomes. Rising Medical Solutions, a medical cost containment company, and Align Networks, a physical medicine provider network, have built an electronic integration that picks up the pace of healthcare.

The new Partner Connection combines Rising's medical claims management expertise with Align's front-end physical medicine management to provide patients with the best rehabilitation care and get them back to work in a timely manner. Simultaneously, the Partner Connection puts payers in a financially favorable position. Through an existing integration with Rising's medical bill review platform, payers can now:

  • Activate the Align Connection within three (3) days
  • Eliminate implementation costs
  • Reduce bill processing time through system automation
  • Utilize up-to-date contractual rates
  • Obtain accurate provider reimbursement recommendations
  • Achieve significant provider discounts on physical medical treatment
  • Load completed Align bills directly into their own claims system

In the healthcare industry, time translates directly to the bottom-dollar. That's why the Rising-Align Connection, with real-time data exchange components, is so advantageous. "We recognize the importance of expediency and accuracy in all our product decisions, which is why we build our partner and client integrations to support real-time messaging. The Align Connection takes advantage of these core features," said Jason Beans, CEO of Rising.

"The complexities in our industry demand flexible technology and multipurpose integrations," said Butch Hofstetter, President of Align. "Allowing payers to connect to Align through Rising's platform is just one of the many ways that we try to make payer interactions easier, faster and more profitable."

As America's healthcare system continues to change, the Rising-Align Connection is reacting quickly. In Q4 the companies will roll-out a service that takes savings one step further through the automatic capture of bills from unscheduled treatment. This move allows Rising's payer clients to realize retroactive contractual discounts.
