CrossPoint: Managed File Transfer and Collaboration with Data Analysis-as-a-Service (white paper)

No comments

Exchanging healthcare files?  Now you can collaborate better, track data quality, and archive.

Collaboration among health payers, providers, MCOs, and other partners and vendors can be bumpy when it comes to sharing data and information.  Transferring data files with multiple content types and formats can be time consuming and error-prone.  You might have little insight about what healthcare content is being exchanged. Data quality is an issue, and file tracking and archival are managed by separate (often costly) applications.

CrossPoint is a single hub solution for file sharing and collaboration, with essential data quality and archiving tools included.  This white paper illustrates the common scenarios for CrossPoint, and why other file sharing and collaboration solutions fall short.

Become a Power Data Steward (DGIQ 2012 presentation)

No comments

At the 2012 Data Governance & Information Quality (DGIQ) Conference, Tina McCoppin presented “Become a Power Data Steward: Operate with Greater Power and Efficiency with  Your Own Data Steward Health Plan.”

Overview:

Data Stewards have it tough. Pulled in multiple directions, they often juggle too much and fall prey to scattered responsibilities without generating lasting, impactful results.  Similar to being on a yo-yo diet, Data Stewards often find themselves either going strong or losing steam.

To strike the right balance of effort for sustained results, we recommend a Data Steward Health Plan that blends both cardio and weight training for data stewards to go the distance in their role.  In other words, Data Stewards should blend a focus on standards and conformity, metadata, enterprise glossaries and data dictionaries (“cardio”) with strength training to develop the skeletal muscles of your organization in such areas as enterprise data integration (EDI), data quality (DQ), and master data management (MDM).

This pump-it-up session will pinpoint activities that really count for Data Stewards.

The SaaS [R]Evolution in Healthcare Recovery (business case)

No comments

A sea of change is happening in healthcare cost management.  Recovery specialists say many issues are hampering their programs—legacy systems based on antiquated technology, lack of integration among information sources, inflexible reporting, partially automated claims recovery processes, passive case management, lack of visibility.

At the forefront of new technologies rapidly changing healthcare recovery is Software-as-a-service (SaaS).  On-demand software for subrogation and overpayment is delivered instantly and less expensively to desktops via the internet “cloud” instead of running on internal systems. These SaaS solutions, available from Discovery Health Partners as an alternative to its Full Service Subrogation and COB, combine leading-edge technology advancements, modernized workflow, and powerful information analytics.
