Health Plan Webinar: Automated Provider Contracting - Reduce Contract Cycle Times by 50%


Healthcare reform has brought the industry to a crossroads. For health plans and insurers, the time has come to make definitive efforts to reduce costs, which includes streamlining Provider Contract Management (PCM) processes.

Philadelphia (I-Newswire) November 9, 2010 - Healthcare reform has brought the industry to a crossroads. For health plans and insurers, the time has come to make definitive efforts to reduce costs, which includes streamlining Provider Contract Management (PCM) processes. Yet, when forced to manage the provider contracting process in a highly manual and paper-based fashion, cost reduction initiatives are impeded and provider relations are often strained.

Join Portico Systems, the leader in Integrated Provider Management (IPM) solutions for a pragmatic review of a case study showing that by deploying an automated provider contract management solution, designed specifically for payers, health plans can arm themselves with the ability to reduce their contract cycles times by as much as 50 percent and improve provider relations. An automated approach to provider contracting represents a paradigm shift in the way contract management is addressed and sets the stage for operational improvements in an evolving market.
