Nivano Physicians Selects PCG’s Flagship Software to Monitor and Enhance the Internal Claims Process
Integration between Virtual Examiner® and existing QuickCAP™ solution from MedVision will allow for cost containment and streamlined processes
LAS VEGAS, Nov. 06, 2018 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- PCG Software (PCG), a leading provider of software solutions designed to slow the escalating costs of healthcare, today announced Nivano Physicians has selected PCG’s flagship claims auditing software, Virtual Examiner® (VE), to help the California-based independent physician association (IPA) enhance their current claims adjudication system. Virtual Examiner® seamlessly integrates with QuickCAP™ 7.0, Nivano’s existing health benefits solution created by software developer MedVision.
“Our team at Nivano Physicians has wholeheartedly embraced the Virtual Examiner system. We are finding VE’s ease of integration to our core platform and ability to swiftly apply millions of edit rules in adjudication, identifying issues prior to check-runs truly has helped minimize and practically eliminate problems of overpayment today,” said Sarath Artham, CEO and Chief Technological Officer, Nivano Physicians.
“The healthcare industry continues to experience the loss of billions of premium dollars to fraudulent, abusive and wasteful billing practices. Virtual Examiner® helps healthcare organizations like Nivano enhance their claims adjudication system by targeting providers who exhibit improper or erroneous coding patterns to contain, recover and conserve premium dollars,” said Michael Lubao, CEO of PCG Software. “By implementing, integrating and automating these cost containment solutions, PCG and MedVision are able to work together to contain cost and streamline the internal claims process for customers like Nivano.”
Virtual Examiner’s® integration with MedVision’s QuickCAP™ solution enhances the relationships between Nivano and its provider network by educating individual providers on proper billing practices and improving physician office staff’s understanding of coding and claims payment guidelines. Each time an inconsistency is detected in a claim, Virtual Examiner® prepares a remittance report, explaining why the claim is reduced or denied. In the process, providers often become aware of state and federal rules governing claims submissions for the first time.
“With the continued change in reimbursement options and the complexity of rules across all lines of business, it behooves any payer organization to include PCG’s process and expertise. We see this as a significant value-add to QuickCAP ’s overall administrative abilities in streamlining and improvement of claims payment environments,” said Albert Sosa, CEO, MedVision.
The ease of implementation between Virtual Examiner® and existing QuickCAP™ also allows for Nivano to quickly integrate from legacy systems, a crucial component as organizations navigate and industry that continues to embrace quickly evolving technologies.
