Burgess Mentioned in Gartner Report on the Hype Cycle for U.S. Healthcare Payers, 2019

ALEXANDRIA, Va. – Burgess, an innovator in healthcare payment operations for over 20 years, announced that the company has been identified as a sample vendor in Gartner’s annual report: Hype Cycle for U.S. Healthcare Payers, 2019 (July 2019). 

Written by healthcare analysts Bryan Cole, Jeff Cribbs, and Mandi Bishop, this report focuses on strategic planning for U.S. healthcare payer CIOs who are considering investments to optimize and transform their organizationsSpecifically, the report tracks maturity levels and adoption rates of emerging payer technologies. 

The report mentions Burgess in a section termed “Prospective Payment Integrity Solutions. This is defined as solutions that “enable payers to proactively avoid paying claims improperly, rather than focusing on the pay-and-chase activities that define retrospective payment integrity solutions. These technologies facilitate accurate claims processing with minimal payment leakage, addressing contracts and services, eligibility, and payment accountability along with fraud, waste and abuse (FWA). These solutions incorporate tools such as claims editing, data mining and complex clinical review as well as advanced analytics and AI.1

Gartner goes on to outline the financial savings for healthcare payers with Prospective Payment Integrity Solutions. “Payers can reliably expect a 1% to 2% savings on claim expense for implementing a full-cycle payment integrity solution (with some vendors claiming 10% savings or more).”1 

Burgess expands upon the challenges and solutions in payment operations in a new series called “The Path to Point-of-Service Payment Success,” based on a speaking session hosted by President and CEO, Greg Burgess, at the 2019 AHIP Institute & Expo. For details on this series, visit burgessgroup.com/insights. 

Our company has tremendous respect for Gartner and its expertise in healthcare payer operations,” Chief Strategy Officer Jared Lorinsky said. “We believe being recognized in this year’s Hype Cycle reflects the commitment we have made to developing solutions that help payers achieve accuracy and efficiency. This shift to distinguishing Prospective Payment Integrity Solutions is in line with what Burgess Source® enables for payers in the healthcare industry.

Lorinsky Brings Claims Payment Expertise to Webinar on Precision Medicine For Health Plans

Chief Strategy Officer Jared Lorinsky joined genetic testing expert Gillian Hooker (VP of Clinical Development, Concert Genetics) and specialty drug expert Todd Cooperman (SVP for Clinical Insights & Analytics, RJ Health), in a webinar entitled “Precision Medicine for Health Plans” on Wednesday, Feb. 13.

Watch the archived recording of the webinar

During the webinar, Lorinsky discusses how emerging genetic tests and specialty drugs add complexity to claims processing. Health care payers struggle to accurately manage claims because of a reliance on disconnected 3rd-party solutions that do not communicate well with one another. Payers attempt to stay current with the latest payment policies and pricing rules but have accuracy and efficiency issues in a continuously changing environment that uses disparate systems. Moderated discussion in the webinar reveals that most existing systems are not built to support these emerging trends.

Contemporary healthcare technology, including cloud-based integrated ecosystems, alleviate a significant portion of this burden. Our latest innovation, Burgess SourceTM, provides payers with a forward-thinking enterprise platform to manage payment rules and workflow. It also allows you to see the impact of your business decisions with business intelligence and real-time dashboards. Burgess Source delivers transparency to payers, their providers, and their partners, serving as a single source of truth, and a single point of accountability.
