Transaction Management Workflow

Transaction Management Workflow

Our transaction management workflow assessment services are designed to assess the current process for managing 835 remittance transactions, denials reporting, and accounts receivable management. Our approach is intended to evaluate the current state of remittance transaction management and identify opportunities to leverage system technology and transaction standards. Doing so will automate and enhance denials management, secondary billing, cash collections, operational efficiency and productivity.

Potential Scope & Approach

The overall objective of the assessment is to identify opportunities to leverage technology to reduce manual intervention, accelerate cash flow, improve revenue capture through timely follow up, and denials management processes. Our approach includes five key areas of focus:

1. 835 Remittance transaction posting review

Conduct analysis of 835 transaction posting including:

  • Posting of Claim Adjustment Reason Codes
  • Posting of associated financial transactions, payments and allowances

2. Denial transaction management review

Review and evaluate current state denial reports and process for tracking, managing and appealing denied claims, which includes:

  • Identifying denied claims by denial category and process owner
