Customizable rules-based software engine simplifies the complexity of medical reimbursement, keeping billing teams focused on only the claims and payments that need attention

Encoda LLC., a leader in healthcare reimbursement technology, today announced an agreement with athenahealth, Inc. through the company’s Marketplace program. As part of the athenahealth® Marketplace, Encoda BackOffice and Maestro Analytics are now available to athenaPractice clients to make it easier for practices to get paid by payers through Encoda’s robust market-leading claims and denials software. Encoda’s customizable and rules-based software engine simplifies the complexity of medical reimbursement by providing the connective tissue between Practice Management (PM) systems, clearinghouses, and payers.

Reimbursement delays, denied claims, and biller productivity continue to be major challenges for practices across the country, who rely on timely, accurate reimbursement to sustain their operations and continue being able to deliver care to patients. Encoda helps providers take their revenue cycle to the next level by focusing medical billing teams on only on those claims and payments that need attention. Instead of medical billers logging in and out of the same or disparate systems (PM, clearinghouse, and payer portals) to work for rejections, denials, and post payments; Encoda presents all claims and remittances that need attention in one intuitive work queue, resulting in increased efficiencies, reduced costs, and faster, more accurate reimbursement.

“Encoda and athenahealth are aligned in our missions to help practices thrive by reducing complexity,” said Lisa Taylor, CEO of Encoda. “Practices deserve innovative solutions that streamline their manual processes and improve transparency. And above all that, they need solutions that make sure they aren’t leaving critical dollars on the table when it comes to getting reimbursed what they’re owed.”

Encoda’s software features a state-of-the-art claims scrubber and the ability to see claims that have been submitted and received by the payers but not rejected, denied or paid. Maestro Analytics is Encoda’s automated dashboard reporting tool that combines data from athenaPractice and payers into one database, providing 100% visibility into the revenue cycle.
