FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
PLEXIS Healthcare Systems (PLEXIS) announces the expansion of its electronic data interchange (EDI) services with the formal launch of Ignite EDI, an all-in-one intelligent EDI Hub that simplifies electronic data management to reduce data entry needs and maximize strategic, scalable, sustainable communication with trading partners.
“Modern healthcare payer organizations require much more than the traditional back office database to meet new standards for data liquidity,” said Pete Escobar, PLEXIS’ Vice President of Product Development. “PLEXIS is bringing a new industry standard to market with Ignite EDI, a disruptive shift to a fully connected environment that recycles transaction data to maximize the entire electronic data lifecycle.
The Technological Foundation of Ignite EDI
The Ignite EDI hub is powered by four smart, foundational building blocks: the EDI gateway, portal technologies, the Atlas engine, and EDI exploration services.
The Ignite EDI gateway connects healthcare payers and providers to improve communication, improve data quality, and empower efficient management of EDI transactions. This ensures the shortest cycle-time from claim submission to payment so that health plans get data more quickly, and providers get paid faster. The Ignite EDI gateway ensures HIPAA compliance through standard X12 formatting that is consistently applied to inbound and outbound transactions.
Ignite EDI portal technologies empower providers, members, and partners to visualize their data intuitively in order to reduce call volume and support a higher level of self-service capability. Clients utilize a branded portal to reduce unnecessary calls to customer support, improve customer service, and increase staff productivity. Ignite EDI portals enable real-time eligibility inquiry, claim status, payment transaction visibility, and other features using an intuitive interface available 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. Clients utilize the built-in visibility and management of state and federal encounter data submissions, to easily correct pended claims in order to ensure the data is accepted for utilization reporting and risk scoring.
Ignite EDI’s Atlas engine forms the bridge between clients’ claims processing platform and their X12 files. The Atlas engine provides data mapping, conversion, and load utilities to import and convert proprietary “low-tech” file formats into standard X12 HIPAA compliant transactions or other proprietary formats.
The final component of the Ignite EDI foundation is EDI exploration services which is PLEXIS’ team approach to the management of customers’ EDI efforts.
