Contractual terms, prompt pay laws, other state regulations—they all form the foundations on which healthcare claims should be quickly and accurately reimbursed per your providers’ agreements. Add another layer of complex compliance: payers must keep data safe and follow regulatory mandates such as HIPAA, HITECH, and SOC. How can your organization check all of the necessary boxes to ensure claims are paid properly and in compliance?
