Chicago – April 22, 2014 – The Healthcare Financial Management Association (HFMA) today announced that, following rigorous review, Healthcare Payment Specialists (HPS) has once again achieved the "Peer Reviewed by HFMA®" standard for its Stingray™ service including: Medicare Bad Debt, Disproportionate Share, Transfer DRG, and Shadow Billing.
Stingray™ is a software platform that automates the review and processing of Medicare and Medicaid reimbursement reviews for Bad Debt, Disproportionate Share, Transfer DRG, and Shadow Billing. Some of the features of Stingray™ include its ability to process multiple lines of review from a single data set and be implemented within a healthcare provider as a software as a service (SaaS) application for use by a healthcare provider’s internal reimbursement team.
“We are excited to receive the HFMA Peer Review designation,” said Todd Doze, President and CEO of HPS. “HPS developed Stingray™ to provide hospitals and health systems with a way to optimize their reimbursement more effectively and efficiently. This prestigious designation validates that Stingray™ has achieved this objective.”
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.
"We’re pleased to have Healthcare Payment Specialists renew their HFMA Peer Reviewed designation," says HFMA President and CEO Joseph J. Fifer, FHFMA, CPA. "The HFMA Peer Review process assures our members, through a rigorous evaluation, that the reviewed product or service meets an objective third-party assessment of overall effectiveness, quality, and value."
