Appeals & Grievances solution supports Gateways belief in “A Better Way”

Milwaukee, WI, March 15, 2016 – Gateway Health, a top ranked Medicaid and Medicare managed care organization has been delivering quality and affordable healthcare to its members for over 20 years. In concert with Gateway’s strong commitment to doing things “A better way” the selection of Kiriworks as their system integration partner further supports this belief

Looking to replace an aging, rigid system, Gateway was in search of a robust, configurable software solution that would help expedite Member & Provider reconsiderations, redeterminations and grievances for both Medicare and Medicaid.

“I’ve previously had the opportunity to demo and work with some of the largest out-of-the-box solutions in the market,” said Alexander Earlywine, Gateway’s Director of Resolution & Improvement. “The Appeals & Grievance solution designed by Kiriworks is one of the most innovative and configurable solution I’ve encountered. It has the ability to process any line of business and when calculating the ROI on this product, it is easy to see how the cross company usages of this product reveal it pays for itself in no time.”

Eric Willis, Kiriworks Executive VP and COO said, “As the market continues to change it is important that payers invest in technology that is quickly adaptable. From the ground-up the Kiriworks A&G suite has been designed to be easily configured to meet market changes. Our partnership with Gateway Health has fostered significant growth of the Kiriworks A&G suite, specifically, new features and enhanced functionality.”

The Kiriworks A&G suite enables Gateway Health to process work more efficiently by tracking cases at each stage in the process. From appointment of representation (AOR) requests to nurse and medical director notes, end users will have increased visibility and better access to information. Automatic generation of notification letters, IRE case packets and creation of universes ensures that all CMS requirements are met. The strong partnership between Kiriworks and Gateway allows for the implementation of an effective Appeals & Grievances solution.

Is Your ECM System an Off-The-Rack or Tailored Fit?

I may not be the most fashionable person, but even I know the difference between something off-the-rack functional that fits like a brown paper bag, and something tailored specifically to fit your measurements. Comparably, software can be crafted the same way. Picture your favorite shirt. You know the one. It’s worn in and comfortable and you can usually be found […]

Is Your ECM Solution a Baby Boomer?

If this is the case for […]

Oh No! It’s Change…

Paperless – The Real Holy Grail?

Try not to laugh, but isn’t removing paper from our business processes the real Holy Grail? And it is not just a document capture issue as a lot of paper is still printed when finishing a process (signature page, batch report, etc.) and sometimes in between. Skeptics would say that it will never happen and optimists envision a 100% digital […]
