Pega Healthcare Software in Action: Automating Claims Processing
Claims processing automation is a good example of Pega healthcare software systems in action. For healthcare claims processing, Pega offers two solution frameworks:
- The Pega Claims Repair Solution checks and corrects errors in claims in order to boost first-pass rates and decrease the number of claims requiring manual examination. This healthcare software solution applies HIPAA-based best practices and easily integrates with your existing claims adjudication system.
- For claims that require manual intervention, Pega Claims Workstation automates claims routing and queueing and provides a complete view of each claim, integrating all relevant data from back-end systems. This Pega healthcare management system increases processor productivity and shortens cycle times. The system can easily be customized by claims managers to encapsulate organization-specific rules, policies, and objectives.
Progressive healthcare organizations have used these Pega healthcare software solutions to achieve measurable improvements in service delivery, performance, efficiency, and agility. For example:
- A regional BCBS used Pega to increase its claims first-pass rate by 4.5 points and gain a more than 300% ROI in the first year of deployment.
- A multi-state Medicaid plan boosted their first-pass rate by 3.4 points during the first year of Pega implementation despite sharp growth in their business and their claims volume.
- A small BCBS was able to implement 45 health reform-related changes in their Pega-based claims automation system in just a week.
Pega healthcare management technology such as our claims automation solutions are available for on-premise deployment or as SaaS solutions in the Pega Cloud.
