Innovative new SaaS offering is the healthcare industry's only solution that aligns item master, chargemaster and operating room (OR) data to help improve and sustain revenue integrity
ATLANTA, Feb. 28, 2019 /PRNewswire/ -- Craneware (AIM:CRW.L), the healthcare market leader in automated value cycle solutions, today announced the general availability of the newest product on its Trisus platform, Trisus Supply.
A recent case study on the operating room supply chain found that foundational data used in preference cards is often inaccurate, charges for supplies are manually maintained and error-prone, and billing is difficult due to vague charge descriptions, missing item numbers and inaccurate pricing.1 To improve these underlying issues in the supply chain, especially with high-dollar OR devices and supplies, healthcare organizations must have a way to bridge the gaps between data silos and improve the accuracy of the master data contained in the item master, chargemaster, and OR files.
Trisus Supply provides the only consolidated cloud-based view of data to help supply chain and revenue integrity leaders understand the impact of these three data silos. With this insight in hand, they can leverage the solution to:
- provide visibility into variances between item master, chargemaster, and OR data – a view that other chargemaster solutions cannot provide;
- maximize supply chain automation by using this data to identify and target operational improvements;
- ensure cost-to-charge accuracy so issues can be discovered and corrected before billing is completed; and
- enhance compliance and improve claim accuracy by automatically identifying and recommending the accurate HCPCS code for codeable supply items.
"Our primary objective of being able to keep multiple systems in sync and the immediate benefit of Trisus Supply is the visibility it offers our decision makers. It not only identifies discrepancies between our materials management system, surgical system and chargemaster, it has created an awareness and understanding of current workflows – allowing for critical improvements to enhance efficiency and accuracy within our processes," said Kerry Topper, RHIA, manager of revenue integrity for Beebe Healthcare. "That kind of visibility not only supports cross-departmental collaboration but strengthens several Beebe core values of 'doing it right the first time – every time' and 'achieve amazing accomplishments through exceptional teamwork'."
"The addition of Trisus Supply further demonstrates a commitment to enhancing our innovative Trisus platform and providing the critical data insights needed for healthcare organizations to thrive in a changing healthcare financial industry," said Chief Technology Officer for Craneware, Marty Smith.
