Tuesday, April 2, 2013

LOUISVILLE, Ky. – ZirMed has launched a web-based service that helps providers determine a patient’s financial responsibility prior to providing service or care, according to a press release. The solution, called ZirMed Patient Estimation, enables providers to get paid faster and more accurately, thereby improving cash flow, the company states in the release. The service leverages a national database of healthcare payment information, which allows it to form financial predictions. “Because of the size and depth of our data network, we are able to perform the patient estimation function without loading contracts or setting up communications with payers,” stated Tom Butts, CEO of ZirMed, in the release.
