Mediware Expands Denial Management Software Offerings Through ZirMed Partnership

Improving denial and appeal management for Mediware’s customer base

Lenexa, KS, October 27, 2015, Mediware Information Systems, Inc., a provider of comprehensive post-acute care healthcare software, announces the expansion of its denial management offerings through its existing partnership with ZirMed, a healthcare financial and clinical performance management solutions provider.

The new offering includes a complete paperless appeals process that provides real-time workflow management to reduce denials and avoidable write-offs. Customers will see an overall reduction in time spent on managing their claims and less effort on cumbersome rework tasks. The new functionality will enable providers to easily spot payer trends and identify excessive denials by payer.

“Having a solution for our customers to reduce their avoidable write-offs is key to managing their revenue in a timely and efficient manner,” says Paul O’Toole, Vice President and General Manager of the Home Care Solutions Division of Mediware. “ZirMed has done an excellent job in providing forward-thinking reimbursement strategies for the healthcare industry and integrating their solutions with our software, and we are eager to pass their new Denial & Appeal Management application on to our customers,” says O’Toole.
