Black Book 2017 Report Ranks ZirMed #1 for End-to-End RCM
Leading revenue cycle management company recognized by large hospital and medical center users for its performance and dedication to outstanding client service
ZirMed Inc. (@zirmed), a recognized leader in cloud-based revenue cycle software and predictive analytics, announced that it has been ranked #1 by its users for the seventh consecutive year in the Black Book™ Rankings 2017 User Survey. ZirMed was recognized as the top-ranked end-to-end revenue cycle management (RCM) software solution for large hospitals and medical centers over 200 beds and holds one of the longest #1 ranking records in Black Book’s healthcare technology user survey history.
Black Book Rankings, a full-service healthcare-centric market research company, annually surveys information technology and service users on the trends and directions of hospitals, chains and physician practices. Over 6,000 financial leaders, as well as administrative and technology support staff of hospitals and physician practices contributed to this year’s survey. The survey analyzed customer satisfaction and client experience across 18 key performance indicators to determine the top vendors.
“The transition to value-based care, the rise of high-deductible health plans, provider consolidation, and other factors have finance leaders seeking out advanced, end-to-end solutions that will help them to improve revenue while also reducing risk,” said Tom Butts, chairman and chief executive officer at ZirMed. “Earning this top ranking for the seventh consecutive year is further proof of our ability to get providers paid faster, more completely and with less effort – a mission that has become even more important in a healthcare landscape undergoing unprecedented changes.”
This industry award comes on the heels of last week’s announcement that ZirMed is merging with Navicure. The newly-combined organizations continue to dominate the Black Book rankings for top satisfaction scores in physician practice RCM software, hospitals under 100 beds RCM software and hospitals over 200 beds RCM software.
“Uniting top-performing revenue cycle management firms will significantly increase the pressure on competitor firms to retain clients,” said Doug Brown, managing partner at Black Book.
Butts added, “This Black Book honor reinforces how ZirMed’s technology and dedication to customer service enables providers to overcome real-world revenue cycle challenges. It also confirms that as a combined company, ZirMed and Navicure are poised to leverage our scale, enhance our capabilities, and win more consistently against legacy competitors. Together, we can expand our reach and empower even more providers to ensure maximum revenue capture—and we couldn’t be more pleased to make a difference.”
ZirMed helps more than 250 hospitals and health systems, and more than 300,000 providers, to optimize their revenue cycles while also streamlining workflows and increasing operational efficiencies. The company’s comprehensive, analytics-driven, dynamic cloud-based platform enables healthcare organizations to quickly identify, anticipate and avoid – rather than just manage – financial issues in an increasingly complex revenue cycle, helping them secure more of the reimbursement due to them today.
