IPA 200 firm Windham Brannon LLC of Atlanta (FY19 net revenue of $28.4 million) is rolling out the Trusted Revenue Innovation for Smart Healthcare (TRISH), a new AI-based application designed to recognize vulnerabilities in the revenue cycles of hospitals and health care organizations and reduce errors that may impact profitability.
Developed as a joint venture between Windham Brannon and data science firm Deep Indigo, TRISH works to analyze problematic areas of the health care revenue cycle – including eligibility, authorizations, pre-certification and claims status – and reduce the administrative burden without human intervention, learning and adapting as new variables are introduced. The goal is to provide more accurate reimbursement without placing extra burden on staff time or resources.
“The revenue cycle is extremely rigorous,” says Windham Brannon health care practice leader Valerie Barckhoff. “Reducing errors and inefficiencies can ultimately reduce the cost of doing business for health care organizations, increase revenue and allow hospitals to focus on taking care of patients.”
