Burgess Reimbursement System drives improvement at SummaCare: 4 things to know

SummaCare, an Akron, Ohio-based provider-owned health plan, has seen positive results following the implementation of the Burgess Reimbursement System. Here are four things to know.

1. Burgess is a provider of health IT management solutions for payments and revenue cycle management. "Payment integrity is a key aspect of a health plan's financial stability. Our model offers a sustainable platform that minimizes the professional services required to integrate, customize, and maintain these systems internally. That in turn enables our partners to focus their freed up human and capital resources for other quality-driven investments," said Jared Lorinsky, vice president of product development at Burgess.

2. SummaCare partnered with Burgess to improve financial operations through the elimination of administrative waste.

3. Within the first few months of implementation, SummaCare experienced an increase in pricing automation and adjudication procedures, improved claims accuracy, lessened IT burden and improved provider relations.

4. Burgess estimates that its software-as-a-service system can reduce internal IT costs by millions each year.
