Chicago – January 28, 2014 – The Healthcare Financial Management Association (HFMA) recently reviewed Recondo Technology's EligibilityPlus™ product using the Peer Review process. After undergoing the rigorous review, EligibilityPlus has been awarded the “Peer Reviewed by HFMA®” designation.

EligibilityPlus offers providers a complete view of patient insurance benefits by combining standard eligibility Electronic Data Interchange (EDI) transactions with benefits available only on payer web portals. With a complete understanding of patient insurance benefits, providers can identify specific coverage, simplify patient registration workflows, reduce claim rework, and assess patient liability.

“The Recondo team is pleased and proud to have our EligibilityPlus software recognized by the HFMA Peer Review program,” said Lori Prestesater, Recondo Chief Growth Officer. “This represents a premier recognition of the value and quality we provide to our customers, supporting their ability to get paid promptly and properly for the services they provide. During the Peer Review process, HFMA interviewed many EligibilityPlus customers and the results are both rewarding and gratifying. We look forward to working closely with HFMA to maximize the value of this important milestone in Recondo history.”

“EligibilityPlus makes it easy for healthcare providers to validate the correct payer source and determine the exact coverage for a particular patient encounter. That’s good for both patients and providers,” said Mike Mulcahy, Senior Vice President, Payer Relations. “EligibilityPlus gives hospitals the most complete view of patient insurance benefits available today, encompassing both commercial and government insurance plans. The HFMA Peer Review designation validates the breadth and depth of the software’s capabilities and value.”

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 comprised 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 undergone a rigorous screening process,” says HFMA President and CEO Joseph J. Fifer, FHFMA, CPA. “The Peer Reviewed designation helps both members and non-members identify superior products and services. It can also create brand awareness and recognition in the healthcare finance marketplace for Peer Reviewed products and services."
