East Liverpool City Hospital Selects GAFFEY Healthcare for Full Business Office Outsourcing Services
Plano, TX Mar 18, 2014 – GAFFEY Healthcare, a leading provider of cloud-based revenue cycle management software & business office outsourcing services, has announced that it has entered into a multi-year agreement to provide full outsourcing services to East Liverpool City Hospital, a short-term acute care facility located in East Liverpool, Ohio.
The outsourcing services will be provided out of GAFFEY Healthcare’s state-of-the-art centralized business office in Plano, Texas. In addition to services, GAFFEY Healthcare will also provide a fully comprehensive business office software suite, including billing & claims management, contract management, automatic claim statusing and their collections & workflow automation tool, AlphaCollector.
“When considering our options for outsourcing, an important factor for us was to find a partner who brought the right combination of people, processes and technology,” said Kyle Johnson, CFO of East Liverpool City Hospital. “From the onset, GAFFEY Healthcare displayed that they could provide both the experienced personnel that we lacked and the technology that was out of our reach. We now have access to both human and technological resources that would otherwise not be available to a hospital of our size.”
“It’s becoming increasingly challenging for healthcare providers to independently navigate complex regulatory changes and remain financially sustainable in today’s atmosphere of economic uncertainty,” added Derek Morkel, CEO of GAFFEY Healthcare. “We’re pleased to have the Hospital as a partner and are confident that we can help lift those burdens and allow them to focus on their mission to provide the community of East Liverpool with the highest level of care.”
