SSI Group has entered into a value-added reseller agreement with Siemens Healthcare, Malvern, PA. The agreement enables Siemens Healthcare to sell SSI's ClickON LinX technology, which provides patient claims editing and transmission for healthcare providers.
SSI’s ClickON LinX can benefit Siemens customers using any revenue cycle management system, but includes a post back feature specifically designed to update patient claims information on the Invision and Unity platforms. Interfaces are also possible to any other Siemens revenue cycle product line.
Research and design teams at SSI and Siemens Healthcare worked collaboratively to achieve successful Health Information System (HIS) post backs in several areas, benefiting healthcare providers because claims changes made within the claims processing system are accurately reflected in the revenue cycle management system, meaning state data files, reports and other information queries are consistent between the two applications.
Doug Bilbrey, executive vice president of sales and marketing at SSI, said: “We felt that having Siemens Healthcare resell SSI’s solutions was the logical next step in our relationship. SSI payer rules are embedded in Soarian. So, deploying SSI is a good option for hospitals currently on the Invision and Unity platforms, but who are planning to move to Soarian. Giving Siemens Healthcare the option to sell SSI’s products will make the transition for hospitals that much easier.”
Ajit Sett, vice president of revenue cycle solutions product management at Siemens Healthcare, said: “By leveraging SSI’s claims management solutions, Siemens can provide customers with an industry-leading solution that has proven to lower claims denial rates and allows hospitals to access up-to-date claims data within their HIS.”
