The Challenge

After 20 years of using the same health information system, Northeast Georgia Health System (NGHS) took a huge step forward with a new system installation in early 2014. Immediately, NGHS recognized its distinct need to work receivables down in the legacy system so as to maximize the efficiency of its staffing model and stay aligned with its revenue cycle goals. MediRevv’s responsive and responsible approach to A/R resolution proved to be the right solution. Handling the rundown of the old system, MediRevv has delivered expectation-exceeding collections results.

The Solution

Clear Commitment to Results

Our partnership with NGHS is founded on a clear commitment to results. From the outset, MediRevv has given NGHS total visibility into every aspect of our decisions, our work efforts and processes.

This openness and clarity in communication with NGHS’s leadership and insurance teams has kept us on track, surpassing our mutual goals of maximizing both payments and the volume of A/R resolved. Throughout the engagement, NGHS has trusted MediRevv for forward-thinking, high-quality customer service, delivered by educated, articulate insurance specialists.

Client TestimonialSuccess Factors

Elyse Gates

Executive Director, Hospital Revenue Cycle Operations
There are two factors driving the success of this particular revenue cycle project at NGHS with MediRevv: the customer piece has been very strong, and they’ve done an excellent job collecting for us. We’re just over a year into the engagement, and we’ve found MediRevv’s team members to be pleasant to work with, easy-going, knowledgeable and committed to our joint success. The relationship is so positive that I’ve reached out to MediRevv for additional help. We’re certainly not going to ask a company that we’re not happy with their results to help out the second time around.

MediRevv exceeded the expected collectibility & desired liquidation with the following results:
 

Liquidation
91.6% of total A/R has been resolved
Collection
$24.4 million of $26.6 million in placements
Efficiency
Total payments are currently $8.3 million over five placements, each aged differently.
