Claims with attachments continue to be one of the main contributors to lengthy processing delays and claim denials for institutional providers.
Payor requests for supporting documentation can delay the processing of eBills up to 45 days on average. FastAttach® efficiently and securely transmits electronic medical records to support your eBills. Hospitals, ambulatory care centers, surgery centers, home health agencies and long term care facilities experience significant improvements in their revenue cycles using FastAttach® for their healthcare claims attachment transmissions. It is estimated that hospitals spend $20 to $30 per document submission to respond to a payor's request for supporting attachments. When using FastAttach®, your facility will save thousands of dollars, and will reduce your processing time on eBills by 60%.
FastAttach® simplifies the task of electronic document management and improves processes by enabling institutions to transmit and store supporting documentation for eBills. Your eBills are matched to the attachment in the payor's claim adjudication software, which eliminates the wait time normally associated with additional documentation requests from payors.
FastAttach® is a secure and HIPAA compliant method of document transfer. FastAttach® requires minimal time and training to implement and through our channel partner relationships we are able to offer integrated services with some hospital information systems, document imaging systems, revenue cycle management systems and clearinghouses.
