TransUnion Healthcare integrates patient financial clearance solution with Epic

TransUnion Healthcare, a TransUnion subsidiary and a provider of revenue cycle management solutions, has integrated its Patient Financial Clearance solutions with the Epic Outgoing Address Verification Query Interface.

Through the integration, Epic clients will be able to query TransUnion's consumer databases to validate patient demographic and financial data at scheduling, pre-registration or registration, according to a news release. 

John Yount, vice president of product for TransUnion Healthcare, expressed excitement about the integration.  

"Patient Financial Clearance solutions integrated into Epic Systems equips front-end staff with the necessary information to quickly determine the patient's ability and willingness to pay, or likelihood to qualify for financial assistance," he said in a statement. "This solution is especially important as the industry is pushing the burden of healthcare costs downline so the patient is the new payer."
