CONTRACTING AND NETWORK MANAGEMENT
You Only Need One System To Manage Provider Networks
Healthcare Organizations are taking a new approach to managing provider data. They are moving away from departmentalized software and seeking solutions that eliminate redundant data sources and optimize resources. New solutions must eliminate manual processes and redundant data entry as well as offer true electronic records and opportunities for integration that result in performance improvement for the plan, providers and members. Reduced costs for implementation, maintenance, system administration and process improvement has driven a movement towards vendor-implemented solutions.
