, a leading medical claims clearinghouse, today announced the company added 316 new medical practices to its client base during the second quarter of 2013. This helped contribute to the company’s 27 percent growth in revenue over the same period in 2012. The growth is driven by physician practices’ need for an online revenue cycle management system to better monitor the entire reimbursement process - from submission to rejection and appeal.
Navicure is an innovative leader in the growing healthcare IT industry. The organization was recently named to HCI 100 list as the 85 largest healthcare IT company in the United States. Navicure’s continued growth in revenue and client base combined with the consistent need for cutting-edge technology throughout the healthcare sector positions the company for sustained corporate growth in the coming years.
Navicure’s revenue cycle management solutions help practices increase profitability through improved claims reimbursement and staff productivity. Some of the new clients added in the second quarter include:
“As our practice prepares for ICD-10, we wanted to make sure our clearinghouse was also prepared for the transition,” said Karen Clark, chief information officer at OrthoTennessee. “Navicure has already shown they are ready for the transition, particularly on the technology, support and education fronts. They also have the tools we’ll need to effectively manage and appeal our denials pre and post transition.”
“Being able to track claims at all times is critical for us,” said Sandy Washburn, chief operating officer at Compass Health Systems. “We have to know if there are issues with the claim before they reach the payer and when the claim was received by the payer so we can accurately predict revenue and cash flow.”
“As the healthcare industry continues to grow, Navicure remains focused on providing award-winning client service and creating IT solutions that enable our clients to collect more of what they’ve earned,” said Jim Denny, founder, president and CEO of Navicure. “We are extremely optimistic about our future growth and continue to hire the best and brightest employees to ensure that we continue to exceed our clients’ service and technology expectations.”
