CONCORD, Calif., Aug. 19, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Rarely in the Property & Casualty industry does collaboration create the degree of momentum now evident in the expansion of interest in electronic medical billing (eBilling), observes Jopari Solutions, a principal supplier of integrated medical transaction EDI services to the Property and Casualty Industry, in a new whitepaper titled: "Property and Casualty Electronic Medical Billing (eBill): E-Billing year 5 Progress Report."
According to Jopari, broad-based collaboration amongst regulators, industry stakeholders and standards organizations has combined with favorable performance metrics to generate significant momentum toward eBilling as a standard operating model for Property & Casualty Payers and Providers. IT offerings in the broader healthcare arena have helped make eBilling realistic in P&C markets, where technology vendors are delivering innovations in such things as attachment handling. At the 5-year milestone since the first eBilling regulations went into effect in Texas in 2008, Payers and Providers are now exchanging eBills in all 50 states, irrespective of state legislation.
Stated Don St. Jacques, Jopari's SVP of Business Development and Client Services and co-author of the whitepaper: "In comparing legacy paper with advanced EDI driven medical transaction processing, the metrics being reported are conclusive. Acknowledged cost-benefits from P&C eBilling are helping accelerate Payer and Provider interest and adoption rates, while escalating regulatory activity is underway in many jurisdictions. On the Payer side, for example, migrating to eBill has become more streamlined with the availability of configurable, HIPAA aligned processing platforms, and the emergence of massive Provider connectivity networks."
The whitepaper explains while the need to achieve 'administrative simplification' in the interactions between Providers and Payers remains the prime driver, necessitating full technology utilization is a key factor driving eBill adoption. Growing demand by healthcare Providers to utilize a 'single work flow' transaction process for all lines of business is the ultimate objective. Non-connected P&C Payers unable to accept eBills will be in danger of being left behind by this important paradigm shift in Provider/Payer interactions.
