Zing Health simplifies claims and authorizations with availability
EDI Solution Supports Zing Healthcare Provider Network
Zing Health has already reduced its pre-authorization requirements and shortened its payment terms to increase its value for healthcare providers. Availity Essentials leverages Zing Health’s vendor support initiatives, enabling secure and efficient transactions to drive collaboration, cost savings, workflow efficiencies, and better patient care.
“The availability allows physicians to quickly verify benefits and claims,” said Dr. Eric E. Whitaker, founder and CEO of Zing Health. “Availability also provides critical information about care coordination and gaps in care, such as missing vaccinations or health checks. EMR integration enables greater collaboration between providers to improve patient care.
With Availity Essentials and Availity Gateway, the exclusive network for Availity health plan customers, Zing Health’s Medicare Advantage HMO plans can work more efficiently with providers. Zing Health can connect to Medicare payers and transmit data securely.
“We are excited to include Zing Health in our extensive network of payers on Availity Essentials, bringing our proven data management and network connections to more providers,” said Rus Thomas, CEO of Availity. “We look forward to working with Zing Health as they continue to expand their reach and grow their supplier network.”
Access to data improves complaints management
Zing Health and other payers sponsor Availity Essentials, which enables direct data entry to establish eligibility, secure authorizations, file claims, check claim status, and send funds. Millions of providers use Availity Essentials to electronically exchange financial and administrative data with hundreds of health plans.
“Availity Essentials is a real-time, multi-payer engagement platform that makes it easier for providers to collaborate with Zing Health,” said Vrajesh Shah, chief information officer of Zing Health. “This will provide a consistent workflow and improve their services, so a doctor can check eligibility and benefits very quickly.”
Advanced data solutions enable Zing Health providers to streamline workflows and focus on member results. The secure, HIPAA-compliant EDI solution is an entry point for suppliers to submit administrative transactions. Its simplified access saves time and unnecessary phone calls.
“The foundation of a cost-effective, patient-centric healthcare ecosystem is the ability to standardize and adopt electronic data exchange between health plans, providers and patients,” Thomas said. “Efficiencies and innovations in today’s healthcare industry will come from making data more accessible, more actionable, and more contextual.”
