Constellation Healthcare Technologies is a healthcare services organisation providing outsourced revenue cycle management ("RCM"), practice management ("PM") and group purchasing services to the physician market in the United States.

The Group benefits from a large market opportunity in physician billing, which is estimated by the Directors to be approximately a $37 billion market across current specialties. The Directors believe that there has been an increasing trend towards physicians outsourcing billing operations, although they also believe that approximately 55 per cent. of physicians still retain their RCM operations in-house. This represents a significant market opportunity for large scale RCM service providers such as Constellation Healthcare Technologies.

Industry Challenges :

The Healthcare Industry faces many new challenges that are coming together to reduce physician earnings by increasing practice costs and complexity. Multiple health plans, intricate reimbursement methodologies, complex regulatory issues, increased patient responsibility for payments, and growth of the uninsured consumer, are the major drivers of the changes; however mandated use of technology (EMR), and increased dependence on mobile applications by consumers are also contributing factors. These change drivers are responsible for significant downward pressure on the bottom lines of many healthcare organizations.

Unlike many other industries; the medical industry has not adopted and embraced process improvement and automation technology resulting in an industry ripe for optimization. Improving financial performance requires specific knowledge of medical practice processes and business acumen. This knowledge must be focused on optimizing the inadequate revenue cycle processes in order to maximize profitability. It also requires investments in new technologies such as voice recognition, automated coding, claims, and payment processing, EHR, and business process workflows. Constellation Healthcare Technologies is uniquely positioned to assist the medical profession on this journey of change, transformation, and optimization.

Compliance

The challenge is here. Implementing healthcare reform measures will impact every aspect of your operations. HIPAA-compliant electronic transactions are only one of many readiness considerations.

A key enabling element underlying these programs is technology. And not just the technology introduced by a provider or health plan into their organizations, but the ubiquity of it now within the general population with the explosion of smart phones and tablets. To help your organization to live and thrive in such a demanding and chaotic environment, Constellation Healthcare Technologies has teams of experienced healthcare and technology delivery experts available to help your organization navigate the many challenges and opportunities of complying and driving value through those efforts.

 

ELECTRONIC HEALTH RECORDS

Currently there are many electronic health record (EHR) systems on the market. While they all offer varying levels of functionality all of them provide a digital version of a patient's paper chart. EHRs are real-time, patient-centered records that make information available instantly and securely to authorized users. Many of the more sophisticated EHR systems are built to go beyond standard clinical data collected in a provider's office and provide a broader view of a patient's care. Constellation Healthcare Technologies helps you get the most from your existing EHR system because we have developed a proprietary integration tools, which can integrate data such as:

A patient's medical history, diagnoses, medications, treatment plans, immunization dates, allergies, radiology images, and laboratory and test results

Evidence-based tools that providers can use to make decisions about a patient's care

Patient demographics and billing information

Our integration tools along with our expert IT consultants help practices automate and streamline data to eliminate redundant data entry and provide workflows that expedite claims processing and ensure rapid payments on claims. Our clients have found that using our integration of your EHR system and your internal or third party billing system you can achieve success on first claim submission in over 98% of your claims.
