Frost & Sullivan Lauds Aprima’s Ambulatory Revenue Cycle Management Platform for Expanding Customers’ Margins through Superior Collection Efficiency

leave a comment »

-Aprima effectively caters to ambulatory practices that require error-free claims processing and timely alerts on key RCM issues
SANTA CLARA, Calif. /PRNewswire/ — Based on its recent analysis of the ambulatory revenue cycle management (RCM) market, Frost & Sullivan recognizes Aprima® Medical Software, Inc. with the 2017 United States Frost & Sullivan Award for Product Leadership. In response to the urgent need for a range of advanced IT solutions that can also generate more net patient revenue, Aprima rolled out a series of RCM solutions, such as patient access, clinical documentation, claims processing, denials management, and outcomes measurement, which cover the entire value chain. Aprima is the RCM vendor of choice for numerous independent and hospital-owned physician practices, serving 70 specialties and sub-specialties in the United States. It boasts an industry-leading client retention rate of 98% due to its dedication to providing best-in-class technologies and reliable customer support.

Frost & Sullivan recognizes Aprima® Medical Software, Inc. with the 2017 United States Product Leadership Award.
Frost & Sullivan recognizes Aprima® Medical Software, Inc. with the 2017 United States Product Leadership Award.
“Aprima’s flagship RCM platform combines sophisticated technology and proven billing expertise to help US ambulatory practices completely outsource their RCM departments,” said Frost & Sullivan Industry Analyst Koustav Chatterjee. “These practices rely on Aprima to optimize cost and collection through better eligibility checking, claims editing, and denial management.”

Aprima’s technology, coupled with advisory services, allows these practices to reduce average account receivable (A/R) durations, enhance corporate revenues, and optimize regulatory compliance with regard to:

ICD 10 transition
Integration of Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services’ (CMS’) rules
Prepayment audits
Adherence to physician quality reporting system (PQRS) reporting objectives
Aprima consolidates the pricing for most RCM components and enhances customers’ margins on collection because they are not required to invest in multiple external RCM vendors. This lowers the operational expenditure on RCM design and deployment.

Many medical practices lack the time and expertise to manage appeals and other billing issues that can result in thousands of dollars lost every month. Aprima RCM provides that focus and expertise, partnering with each practice to help increase reimbursements, speed up payment time, and reduce denials and underpayments. Furthermore, the company’s account management team helps practices identify coding omissions, and compares payments to payer contracted allowables, in order to help prevent underpayments. The team also assesses denials and offers regulatory support. On average, Aprima RCM customers are paid significantly faster than other RCM services and industry benchmarks.

Aprima’s claims engine has more than 20 million edits and a 98% clean claims rate. Its customers prefer doing business with Aprima due to its deep customer centricity and demonstrable results. On average, physician practices that leverage the Aprima RCM platform improve collection efficiency by 7% to 9% and increase revenue up to 29%.

“Aprima has emerged as the ideal RCM solution for ambulatory providers that are replacing their incumbent electronic health record vendors and or RCM vendors due to their inability to optimally enable value-based care principles,” noted Koustav. “Overall, its top-class RCM platform, customer acquisition strategy for new accounts, and evidence-based product enhancements for existing accounts will ensure its continued success through 2020.”

Each year, Frost & Sullivan presents this award to the company that has developed a product with innovative features and functionality, gaining rapid acceptance in the market. The award recognizes the quality of the solution and the customer value enhancements it enables.

Frost & Sullivan Lauds FourKites’ Customer-Focused Growth Strategy in the Supply Chain Tracking Market

leave a comment »

FourKites has built a cross-connected, scalable platform that aggregates siloed data and delivers unprecedented real-time freight visibility and orchestration

SANTA CLARA, California, May 2, 2017 /PRNewswire/ — Based on its recent analysis of the dynamic supply chain tracking solutions market, Frost & Sullivan recognizes FourKites with the 2017 North American Frost & Sullivan Award for Entrepreneurial Company of the Year. FourKites has built a unique solution that addresses the blue ocean of opportunities in shipper supply chain management (SCM). In the three years since its inception, FourKites has garnered a clientele of more than 30 of the leading shippers and third-party logistics providers (3PLs) in North America. It also received $16 million in funding from various venture capitalists, underlining the immense confidence of investors in its business model.

FourKites recognized that conventional freight tracking processes have massive blind spots that cost shippers heavily. In response, it started building software that would modernize information sharing in the $800 billion logistics industry and support high-quality, real-time data exchange among shippers, carriers, and 3PLs. Blue-chip shippers have been deploying FourKites’ solution to gain real-time visibility into and orchestration of their freight. In addition, eight of the top 30 3PLs rely on FourKites, thus unifying a host of systems to better control supply chain visibility.

“Instead of merely being a visibility platform, FourKites’ solutions offer real-time, actionable tracking data, and, more importantly, the orchestration tools to manage exceptions,” said Frost & Sullivan Industry Analyst, Silpa Paul. “The company has invested heavily in its capability to connect previously disparate systems for providing real-time visibility. The company has more than 15 bi-directional, working integrations with leading transportation management software providers, and connections to leading carrier and broker dispatch systems.”

Significantly, the company employs a people-powered, relationship-driven partnership model. The company collaborates with the customer to develop capabilities and solutions that deliver true value. It is not just a vendor application simply bolted onto a broader stack of technology, but an integral part of customers’ business.

FourKites’ value is further evident in its provision of a complimentary Visibility Assessment that applies anonymized customer data to a series of ROI categories, such as:

detention cost savings,
inventory reduction at distribution centers, and
efficiency gain/loss of inbound track and trace.
“FourKites is now a disruptive brand that enhances downstream production management and pushes both customers and partners to creatively apply modern technology,” noted Paul. “Meanwhile, its people-centric business model can remove supply chain and logistics inefficiencies to deliver a rich client experience.”

Each year, Frost & Sullivan presents this award to the company that has demonstrated excellence in devising a strong growth strategy and robustly implementing it. The recipient has shown strength in terms of innovation in products and technologies and leadership in customer value, as well as speed in response to market needs. In short, the award looks at the emerging market players in the industry and recognizes their best practices that are positioned for future growth excellence.

Frost & Sullivan Best Practices awards recognize companies in a variety of regional and global markets for demonstrating outstanding achievement and superior performance in areas such as leadership, technological innovation, customer service, and strategic product development. Industry analysts compare market participants and measure performance through in-depth interviews, analysis, and extensive secondary research to identify best practices in the industry.

There will be the development of three business groups in the future including Sattahip Commercial Port, a Specialized Medical Center, and defense technology. The meeting also agreed to have the State Railway of Thailand conduct the feasibility study on the development of high-speed train system linking Suvarnabhumi, Don Mueang & U-Tapao airports, to maximize the benefits of the “Aeropolis” to the country. The Policy Committee also endorsed the development plan for the Eastern Economic Corridor of Innovation (EECI) under the Ministry of Science and Technology in Wang Chan Valley and Rayong province and the Eastern Digital Innovation Park under the Ministry of Digital Economy and Society in Sri Racha, Chonburi.

In this occasion, Prime Minister Gen. Prayuth led a group of Thai and international media representatives to visit the new face of U-Tapao International Airport, which showcased the country’s capability to become the aviation hub of the region. Developed under the “One Airport, Two Missions” concept, U-Tapao International Airport was initially built for national security purpose but later expanded its capability to serve commercial aviation services. The group later visited the Maintenance, Repair and Overhaul Center located at the airport.

Other target industries are Next-Generation Automotive, Smart Electronics, Eco-friendly Petrochemicals and Bio-Chemicals, Automation and Robotics, Medical Hub, Affluent, Medical & Wellness Tourism, Food for the Future and Digital industries.

Prime Minister Gen. Prayuth said that, “The Thai government is keen to offer a full support to international investors in these target industries who strive to achieve sustainable development goals, bring a better quality of life to the local community and provide continuing opportunities for local SMEs. We have qualified workforce in the market, as well as utilized best efforts in mitigating investment obstacles and offering attractive privileges and incentives.

JETRO expressed that Japanese investors were confident on the clear direction of the EEC project and optimistic about the Thai government’s recent announcement of Investment Promotion Act 2017.

According to Senior Aerospace, to be a part of the new EEC program is a good opportunity to educate local people as well as learn from them, while strengthening the mutual relationship, as well as marks the beginning of business expansion into the future where they foresaw more and more new players in the aviation sector.

PTTGC, as a veteran investor in the areas, expressed readiness to embrace new business partners in value-added industry sectors.

The Board of Investment of Thailand (BOI) set new chapter of investment promotion – Investment 4.0 to align with the Thai government’s Thailand 4.0 policy, which takes into account the shifting to value-based, innovation-driven economy, the development of human capital, and the creation of high value service. BOI’s mission to promote investment in the EEC focuses on core technologies that Thailand has strong potential, including biotech, nanotech, advanced material and digital technology. This is in line with BOI’s.

According to the BOI, those investing in EEC area will enjoy special incentives that are highly competitive and considered ‘most enticing ever’ offered in Thailand. These include 50% deduction on corporate income tax (CIT) for five years in addition to a CIT exemption of 13 years and other incentives granted in line with the Competitive Enhancement Act, which includes a maximum corporate income tax exemption of 15 years, among others. The government will also provide other supports including eliminating barriers, rules and regulations in order to generate real, high-value investments as well as One Stop Service to facilitate investment in the area.

The EEC, consisting of three Eastern provinces Chachoengsao, Chonburi and Rayong, is expected to be a flagship investment and technology hub of Thailand and reshape the future of the country. The development of EEC will bring a great deal of benefits to other regions of Thailand as it directly connects to other Eastern provinces including Prachin Buri, Srakaew, Chantaburi and Trad, as well as serve as economic link between upper and lower Northeastern region, and the Gulf of Thailand.

SWIFT and banks in the Philippines join forces to achieve greater automation for Filipino corporates

leave a comment »

The launch of the Philippines guidelines for Account Reporting (MT940) will help Filipino corporates optimise their finance operations

MANILA, Philippines, May 2, 2017 /PRNewswire/ — SWIFT announces today the publication of the Philippines (PH) MT940 guidelines, marking a successful completion of the first phase of the Corporate-to-Bank (C2B) initiative. Announced in January 2016, the initiative aims at aligning the communications standards between corporates and banks in the domestic Filipino market. The guidelines were developed with the support of 25 global and local banks along with 10 corporates including Ayala Land, Globe, and Meralco.

Leveraging international best practices and keeping in mind the Filipino market specific requirements, the initiative will bring greater levels of automation and standardisation to multi-banked corporates, enabling improved straight through processing (STP) using MT940 for auto-reconciliation of bank statements and consolidated cash visibility, all on one single platform. By providing a forum to define enhanced standardisation in the Philippines financial community, SWIFT is playing an essential role as it brings the community together to identify and overcome current challenges.

The first phase of the C2B initiative is now completed with the launch of the Account reporting (MT940) guidelines for the Philippines. The initiative is carrying on with its mission to develop a standard language for Corporate-to-Bank message flow in accordance with global and domestic market practices. The next phases will see the C2B initiative defining common standards for payment instructions (Phase 2), foreign exchange confirmations, fixed deposits and fixed loans confirmation (Phase 3). The C2B initiative will bring greater alignment between corporates and banks on financial requirements. SWIFT is committed to enable the PH C2B guidelines and foresees strong adoption by the financial community of these newly developed standards in the coming months.

Lisa O’Connor, Head of Standards, Asia Pacific at SWIFT said: “It is great to see so many banks and corporates participating to SWIFT’s Corporate-To-Bank initiative. The launch of the PH MT940 guidelines is a display of the industry’s capability in collaborative innovation. We live in a world of speed and interconnectivity. When it comes to guidelines, focus on standardisation should be a priority with international regulations and making sure auto reconciliation goes smoothly. Our C2B initiative will drive improved communication between corporates and banks following global standards. This is a great project for SWIFT and the domestic Filipino community through the drive to improve existing message flow and combine it with well-defined international standards to support the strongly developing Filipino economy. As the community becomes more aware of the value of these guidelines, we expect an increase in adoption.”

Isabelita M. Papa, Philippines NMG Chairperson and SWIFT User Group Chairperson said: “This initiative is a further proof of the power of collaboration as the Philippines community and SWIFT came together to align the communication standards between corporates and banks. In the larger context of ASEAN integration, this is a critical step to drive efficiency in the Filipino economy as it aligns closely with AEC 2025 goals and global trends such as ISO 20022 adoption. The Corporates-to-Banks initiative is a fantastic example of the private sector responding to these evolving needs”.
