BESLER Consulting Helps Hospitals Improve Medicare Billing With Inventu Flynet ViewerBESLER BVerified(SM) Solutions Leverage Flynet Viewer to Improve Mainframe Integration, Access to Critical Medicare Data (March 20, 2012)
MARBLEHEAD, MA -- (Marketwire) -- 03/20/12 -- Inventu Corporation (www.inventu.com), developer and supplier of data integration solutions, today announced that BESLER Consulting, a leading healthcare financial and operations consulting company, has chosen Inventu's Flynet Viewer software to help hospitals ensure timely and accurate Medicare payment. BESLER's BVerified(SM) suite of cloud-based solutions now leverages Inventu's Flynet Viewer to gain quick and efficient access to the Medicare Common Working File; information stored on 14 mainframes operated by Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services. The Common Working File is the repository of beneficiary demographics, eligibility and billing information. Quickly integrating Medicare data with hospital billing information brings huge benefits by eliminating delays, wasteful rework and lost revenue.
Flynet Viewer helps BESLER deliver a powerful return on investment to the hospitals they serve. A typical review that once took between 3 and 4 weeks of manual effort is now completed in less than 4 hours. This represents huge cost savings, which are amplified by the fact that BESLER clients are able to bring these processes in-house vs. engaging a third party. In addition, the streamlined process allows BESLER to review a greater number of claims, more types of claims, and to identify additional opportunities. "The feedback has been very positive. Our client hospitals are very impressed with the speed and ease of use of the tools we have provided, which at the same time ensure higher accuracy," says Jim Hoffman, Chief Technology Officer at BESLER Consulting.
The BESLER team used Flynet Viewer to overcome a variety of mainframe data integration challenges related to a mix of Medicare mainframe systems running CICS under MVS, IBM 3270 emulation, Unicenter CA-TPX and EDS. "We looked at a number of alternatives, but in the end, the flexibility, native Visual Studio integration and the built-in years of experience in accessing mainframe systems that are reflected in the product, led us to select Flynet Viewer," says Jim Hoffman. Flynet Viewer's ease of use and ability to map screens to objects were also major plusses for BESLER. "The pain of mainframe screen scraping is definitely a thing of the past. Flynet Viewer allowed our developers to focus on building the business tools without having to understand the nuances of mainframe programming. This alone saved us months of coding and testing," adds Hoffman.
"We've eliminated the drudgery, painstaking details and frustrations so common to older generations of screen integration tools. That's why, with a few web mentoring sessions, a bright developer can experience rapid success. It was rewarding to see that take place with the BESLER team," states Bill Thorne, Inventu's President and Chief Technology Officer. Learn more and read a detailed case study at www.inventu.com.
