HMS, a wholly owned subsidiary of HMS Holdings Corp. (NASDAQ: HMSY), announced today the rollout of its integrated suite of payment integrity solutions for commercial and government payers, HMS IntegritySourceSM. HMS will fully unveil HMS IntegritySource at the annual conference of the National Association for Medicaid Program Integrity (NAMPI) in Baltimore, Md., from Aug. 18 to Aug. 21.
HMS IntegritySource aims to deliver on the promise of “one data source, many solutions” for commercial and government payers. Key components include fraud, waste, and abuse identification and prevention; clinical program services; provider screening; automated and complex clinical reviews; financial audits; and Medicaid Recovery Audit Contractor (RAC) services.
“We’re excited to bring an integrated solution to healthcare payers,” said Christina Dragonetti, HMS Chief Development Officer. “HMS IntegritySource represents a significant step forward in providing a one-stop shop for payment integrity solutions for commercial and government payers.”
HMS IntegritySource includes advances in key components of program integrity. For instance, HMS’s fraud, waste, and abuse portal now allows payers to identify at-risk providers through provider scorecards, and to launch and track investigations directly from their desktops. Enhancements utilized by commercial insurers, such as provider targeting, now allow government payers to improve their claims payment accuracy, boosting net return on investment from 3 to 1 to 10 to 1. HMS also recently teamed with partners Digital Harbor and Health Market Science to introduce Know Your Provider, a new solution that helps payers meet Affordable Care Act requirements to screen and monitor providers.
