2016 CAQH Index: Tracking Industry Trends and Cost Savings in Use of Electronic Healthcare Business Transactions
June 28, 2017, 2:00 PM ET
There is widespread consensus that administrative costs in healthcare are excessive. By some estimates, more than $31 billion each year is spent conducting basic business transactions between healthcare providers and health plans. Much of this expense can be attributed to resource-intensive manual processes, such as phone calls to verify patient coverage or mailing claims and paper checks. Learn how the CAQH Index tracks industry trends in the adoption and cost savings of electronic healthcare business transactions. Register now.
