The solution was introduced at the Healthcare Financial Management Association’s 2013 Annual National Institute in Orlando, Fla.
“Provider organizations are under unrelenting pressure to manage their finances in an uncertain economic environment, with continuing Medicare reimbursement cuts, new value-based reimbursement models and many new financial relationships with managed care payers and physician practices,” said John Hansel, MedeAnalytics’ vice president, Healthcare Provider Solutions. “Our Financial Strategy Analytics solution empowers them to confidently and successfully meet these financial challenges.”
Financial Strategy Analytics provides hospitals and health systems with daily insight into finance, strategic planning and managed care performance metrics. “MedeAnalytics aggregates disparate patient accounting, cost, contract management and other sources of financial data into a web-based, collaborative analytics application to support strategic decision making,” said Hansel. “The solution empowers hospital chief financial officers, vice presidents of finance, directors of managed care, decision support analysts, and finance staff to monitor key performance indicators and understand the root causes of variances, trends and outliers.”
