Retrospective medical bill negotiating is a delicate balance.
Overly aggressive tactics can create a negative relationship with the physician. Using historical data to create an automated rate application creates results that aren’t guaranteed. Focusing too heavily on turn-around time doesn’t allow for maximizing savings opportunities.
At the end of the day, all parties need to experience value in a negotiated transaction. This is only accomplished with a quality negotiation staff, clinical auditing, readily available funds for payment, an efficient workflow, and collaborative relationships with physicians.
S1 Medical is an advocate to making negotiations a more meaningful solution within an organization’s cost containment program. Today, on average, 95% of medical is ran through a traditional PPO network. We challenge our customers to compare their multi-state average PPO Network metrics to the S1 Medical Negotiations metrics. Based on our result capability, plus our essentially non-existent provider pushback, we’re challenging the market to move more of their medical spend to negotiations.
