Inaccuracies in the data payers have on providers affect patient decision making

06/16/16

It is true. If the data is inaccurate or inadequate it’s more than useless for the patient… It hurts the bottom line for all stake holders.

Patients need and are demanding quality transparent care. They need to know where to go, who to see, and expect no billing surprises.
Payers must provide accurate data at the point of care or they will feel the price of their inaction; either by fines or lack of customer retention.
Providers are feeling the pain from both payers and patients. Hospital and community health organization are suffering from siloed data and the inability to share and maintain basic information. The cost... under-utilized assets due to patient leakage.

Everyone wants a solution to efficiently resolve the core issues. Unfortunately many payers and providers are immobile due to the multiple levels of complexity. Solution providers that fix one aspect never effectively address the entire problem.

VIIAD has all the tools in one complete solution. Our single source, real time intelligence engine COMPASS can successfully cleanse, sync and optimize your data. Utilizing effective channeling of data updates and transparency of complex networks, COMPASS enables the user to manage, influence and communicate effectively.

National Association of Insurance Commissioners Updates Model Network Adequacy Law to Address Narrow Networks and Surprise Bills

12/28/15

Are you ready? Have a solution in place? Time is running out.

Many mandates and legislative bills have already been enacted or introduced in many states.

Many were just waiting for the National Association of Insurance Commissioners ("NAIC") to release their updates in order to model their own network adequacy standards.

Tick tock... the NAIC has approved an updated version of its Managed Care Plan Network Adequacy Model Act now known as the Health Benefit Plan Network Access and Adequacy Model Act ("Network Adequacy Model Act").

Controversy and concern over lack of accuracy, geographical data and participating providers in narrow networks resulting in surprise bills are just some of the issues driving mandates around transparency in networks.

At the next legislative sessions, our lawmakers will be confronting and putting laws in place addressing concerns widely discussed since the implementation of the Exchange marketplaces. These legislatures will likely finalize and introduce new network adequacy bills modeled on the NAIC and its recommendations.

We’ll get right to the point… VIIAD is the silver bullet.

One solution... One engine... to cleanse, sync and optimize information, making it actionable anywhere, anytime

We can quickly and easily have your networks in compliance. Our real-time intelligence engine, COMPASS, efficiently provides the most accurate data to end users.

Good information on physicians hard to find

10/27/15

As published in HealthcareITNews, a new report, The Consumer's Path to Finding a Healthcare Provider, finds "consistent and comprehensive" information on physicians sorely lacking.

The survey was derived from qualitative and quantitative research with more than 1,000 patients. Survey responses conclude that specific physician attributes matter most to consumers. Ninety percent of respondents said it important or very important to confirm their healthcare is covered by their insurance.

This is no surprise to VIIAD. Complete and accurate physician data is important to consumers, as well as to employers and providers. Patients want to make educated decisions before visiting a healthcare professional. Employers and providers want to make sure their consumers are getting to preferred healthcare professionals and services. But neither can make the right decision if the data is incomplete, or worse, inaccurate.

Before the surveys and recent compliance mandates, our customers and (more importantly) their patients have benefited from VIIAD's solutions. VIIAD's configurable solutions navigate the pathway to proactively drive better care management, resource allocation, and cost containment. We enable organizations to manage, influence and communicate information to empower end users.
