Overview

Proactive Financial Management

The Centricity* EDI Services solution offers advanced revenue cycle management tools that bridge together GE’s all-payer claim EDI gateway, GE’s EDI Services, and Centricity‘s financial management suite. Proactive monitoring services with automated and customized Task Management work lists are designed to help customers manage the claims that either failed to pass the up-front edits or that were denied for payment by the payers. This combined solution eliminates paper, phone, and fax steps to improve productivity and increase cash flow – saving time and money.
