LAFAYETTE, Ind. — Salud Solutions, which provides hospitals, health systems and physician practices with revenue cycle management, extended business office support, leading-edge coding solutions and patient access services, has changed its name to Salud Revenue Partners. The company also is debuting a new website at www.saludrevenue.com, as well as a white paper, “Optimize Billing to Sustain Results.”
“We work within our clients’ organizations, and stay the course to optimize net revenue and operational efficiency through consulting, management services and staffing”
“We chose our new name because at a time when reimbursement is at issue from the fundamental changes taking place in healthcare, hospitals and physicians need a true partner who understands the full complexities of the revenue cycle,” said Jesse Ford, MBA, Salud’s President and CEO.
The challenges that Salud addresses include the explosion of patient self-pay, increasing lag time for reimbursement, increased denials by insurers and ever-changing coding standards.
Salud delivers robust analytics, but utilizes its clients’ registration, workflow and accounts receivable systems to maximize their sizable investments in them. “Our clients know their data and dashboards have integrity and are accessible for internal analysis,” Ford said.
Salud’s operating model is to place resources both on-site at client locations – where its solutions specialists and Lean Black Belts actively participate in continuous improvement – and off-site at Salud’s central business office in Lafayette, Ind., where it focuses on effectively collecting unpaid balances due from patients and insurance companies.
“We work within our clients’ organizations, and stay the course to optimize net revenue and operational efficiency through consulting, management services and staffing,” Ford said.
Salud serves an array of clients, but has specialized experience working with community hospitals, safety net hospitals, providers using MEDITECH information systems, Medicaid and Medicaid managed care and Federally Qualified Health Centers.
The new website also highlights the company’s wealth of experience working with multispecialty medical groups and employed physicians. Salud offers end-to-end solutions to support physician billing and collections, ensuring proper clinical documentation and clean bills, which are critical to timely and accurate reimbursement.
“Our world-class team is comprised of proven industry veterans and visionaries who have improved and protected the bottom line in healthcare organizations across the nation,” Ford said. “The synergies between our revenue cycle and coding teams bring results for our clients.”
