Reduced Accounts Receivable Days Pays at New York Hospital

Eclipsys Corp. announced that St. Joseph's Hospital Health Center, (Syracuse, NY) has documented record cash collections, achieved near 100 percent registration accuracy and recovered more than $20 million in revenues over budget due to reduced Accounts Receivable days. According to Mike Shaffer, St. Joseph's chief financial officer, the results can be attributed to the Sunrise Access Manager/Patient Financial Manager, Eclipsys' revenue cycle management software solution.
The system provides a comprehensive enterprise master person index (EMPI), scheduling, registration and patient accounting solution that includes a combined business office. It leverages managed-care contracts for more effective reimbursement and accounts receivable processes and re-engineers administrative and financial processes to match contemporary healthcare workflows.
