Connance Renews HFMA Peer Review Designation

The Healthcare Financial Management Association (HFMA) today announced that, following rigorous review, Connance has once again achieved the “Peer Reviewed by HFMA® ” designation for its Patient Pay Optimization suite.

The Connance Patient Pay Optimization solution suite optimizes hospitals’ patient-pay process from bill drop through bad debt. Connance predictive analytics supports the management, measurement, and integration of all activities of internal operations and outsourced vendors. The comprehensive suite addresses cash collection, third-party insurance discovery, and financial assistance efforts. Analytically driven workflows, sustained by performance management, increase net income and enhance the patient experience.

“In an era of rising patient responsibility, it is imperative that hospital organizations have a patient-centric strategy to improve financial results,” said Connance CEO Steve Levin. “We are pleased to participate in the HFMA Peer Review process to share the impact that Patient Pay Optimization has had on enhancing the patient financial relationship and generating more revenue for our clients.”

HFMA’s Peer Review process provides healthcare financial managers with an objective, third-party evaluation of business solutions used in the healthcare workplace. The rigorous, 11-step process includes a Peer Review panel review comprising current customers, prospects who have not made a purchase, and industry experts. The Peer Review status of the healthcare business solution and its performance claims are based on effectiveness, quality and usability, price, value, and customer and technical support.

“We’re pleased to have Connance renew their HFMA Peer Reviewed designation,” says HFMA President and CEO Joseph J. Fifer, FHFMA, CPA. “The HFMA Peer Review process assures our members, through a rigorous evaluation, that the reviewed healthcare business solution meets an objective, third-party assessment of overall effectiveness, quality, and value.”
