Chicago — May 29, 2013 – The Healthcare Financial Management Association (HFMA) recently reviewed TruBridge using the Peer Review process. After undergoing the rigorous review, TruBridge's Accounts Receivable Management Service has been awarded the "Peer Reviewed by HFMA®" designation.

TruBridge is a provider of business, consulting, and managed IT services to the rural community hospital market. Its Accounts Receivable Management Services encompass the full revenue cycle, helping clients to ensure that patient account processes flow smoothly from the beginning of each encounter through to the final payment. TruBridge gives clients an experienced management team that provides daily monitoring of critical indicators including accounts receivable cash flow, accounts receivable days, information management, medical records coding statistics, unbilled insurance claims, billed but unpaid claims, rejected claims and the management of private pay receivables and collections.

TruBridge hosts weekly conference calls to identify issues and promote best practices within client facilities and generates reports for clients to help them monitor the revenue cycle process, performance, and trending.

"The HFMA Peer Review program is an incredible asset for healthcare enterprises seeking proven, high-quality receivables services," said Chris Fowler, President of TruBridge. "We look forward to participation in the program and its unbiased assessment of the value, quality, and effectiveness of TruBridge’s Accounts Receivable Management Service. It is our expectation that the HFMA vetting process will positively affirm what our customers have known for quite some time—that TruBridge has the knowledge, experience, and customer support infrastructure necessary to help community hospitals succeed in meeting their business goals."

HFMA's Peer Review process provides healthcare financial managers with an objective third party evaluation of products and services used in the healthcare workplace. The rigorous, eleven-step process includes a Peer Review panel review made up of current customers, prospects who have not made a purchase, and industry experts. Peer Review status of the product or service and its performance claims are based on effectiveness, quality and usability, price, value, and customer and technical support.

"HFMA’s Peer Review process provides our membership with the assurance that those who have earned the designation have met a rigorous screening process," says HFMA President and CEO Joseph J. Fifer, FHFMA, CPA. "The Peer Reviewed designation helps members and others identify and evaluate products and services that their organization may need. It can also create brand awareness and recognition in the healthcare finance marketplace for Peer Reviewed products and services."
