Impression With Innovative Healthcare Company
Press Release Body = SHAWNEE, KANSAS — Perceptive Software, Inc., today announced
that Health Management Systems, Inc. is expanding the company's deployment of
ImageNow® document imaging and workflow software to meet growing business needs.
HMS, a national leader in revenue recovery and cost containment for government
healthcare programs, has virtually eliminated paper processes in its Provider
Relations Call Center with the help of ImageNow software. Currently, HMS is
implementing the software in a second paper-intensive area: the case management of
revenue recoveries from casualty sources.
"Our goal is to streamline work processes in growth areas so that we can allocate
staff and resources more efficiently," said William Lucia, president of HMS, a
wholly owned subsidiary of HMS Holdings Corp. (NASDAQ: HMSY). "We see ImageNow as a
strategic partner as we grow."
The spiraling costs of Medicaid and other government healthcare programs have
created an urgent demand for HMS's services, which identify and recover expenditures
from other liable parties, such as private insurance. HMS has recovered more than $2
billion from third parties on behalf of its clients, and today has active contracts
in more than 20 states.
Known for applying advanced technology in its revenue recovery operations, HMS
required an equally advanced document imaging solution. In ImageNow, HMS found a
cost-effective, flexible and scalable solution that easily integrates into any
application, providing a quick return on investment.
"HMS uses everything from mainframe to Web-based applications, so the ability to
integrate is crucial. I have never seen a product that is as easy to integrate as
ImageNow," said Lucia.
Lucia brought a unique perspective to HMS's choice of ImageNow. In addition to
leading healthcare reimbursement organizations, he has spoken and published widely
on document imaging and its applications in the insurance industry. With exposure to
many of the major vendors in the marketplace, Lucia quickly realized the advantages
of the ImageNow solution.
"Clearly, ImageNow has proven that it is far ahead of the other systems we
considered," said Lucia.
ImageNow's patented integration technology (LearnMode™) makes it possible for HMS to
implement the benefits of document imaging and workflow automation anywhere the
solution is needed. As a result, HMS can keep pace with the demand by removing
cumbersome, paper-related obstacles throughout the enterprise.
"With ImageNow, HMS is better able to accommodate — and prepare for — business
growth," said Lucia. "Our plan is to leverage ImageNow as a key operations tool."
Health Management Systems, Inc. is a national leader in revenue recovery and cost
containment for government healthcare programs. HMS has recovered more than $2
billion from third parties and other funding sources on behalf of its clients, and
today has active contracts in more than 20 states. HMS's solutions are
non-duplicative and require no up-front funding or additional agency resources. HMS,
a wholly owned subsidiary of HMS Holdings Corp. (listed on NASDAQ under the symbol
HMSY), is headquartered in New York and operates offices nationwide.
