Burgess Demonstrates New Web-Based Claims Pricing Software

–New Approach Simplifies Installation and Maintenance–

ALEXANDRIA, Va., June 14, 2011 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- Health care reimbursement solutions provider Burgess will unveil a web-delivered version of its Medicare-based claims pricing tool, the Burgess Reimbursement System (BRS®), at the America's Health Insurance Plans (AHIP) Institute 2011 conference beginning June 15 in San Francisco.

By leveraging the software as a service model, Burgess will offer pricing software that is simple to set up and maintain, and significantly faster to implement.  

The new platform will allow health plans, providers and medical technology companies to access BRS® features by logging on to a web portal.  Users can begin pricing and auditing claims immediately.

"As part of our client commitment, we continually work to innovate both the delivery and functional aspects of our solutions," said Greg Burgess, president and founder of Burgess.

By eliminating the client's internal update process, the web-based system provides a seamless experience for the end-user to ensure that significant Medicare rate and policy changes made throughout the year are delivered in a more timely manner.  

"BRS® web-based delivery allows health plans and providers to effortlessly integrate accurate Medicare data into their operations," Burgess said.  "Our clients rely on that data to price and validate claims correctly with the most up-to-date information, saving time and money."

Clients use BRS® to price claims using Medicare rates, groupers and payment policies. BRS® automates complex product configuration with tools to create and manage Medicare-inspired fee schedules and contract–specific payment metrics. Other versions of the software are housed on the user's computer desktop or run via a direct connection to the client's claim system.  Users will have the option to house the new web-based BRS® software on their own servers or on Burgess' secure network.

Burgess employees will demonstrate the new version of BRS® and the web delivery system at AHIP's Institute 2011.  Burgess is a Presidential Sponsor of the event for health insurance plan leaders and professionals.  To register for a BRS® demonstration during the conference, please email [email protected] or visit Booth #419.
