“We’re excited to consolidate our services under a name that captures our collaborative approach to revenue cycle services”

ParaRev now offers a full spectrum of healthcare revenue cycle management services, from front-end charge master analysis and contract management to end-of-cycle zero-balance underpayment and denial recovery. The Para prefix, which means as alongside or parallel, reflects the company’s commitment to working seamlessly with hospital financial and billing staff to minimize denials and bad debt, improve collections and boost revenues.

“We’re excited to consolidate our services under a name that captures our collaborative approach to revenue cycle services,” said Jerry Connelly, President and CEO. “Our integrated capabilities create a powerful, new option for hospitals looking for either a long-term partner or one-off project assistance to help them address the growing financial challenges in healthcare.”

Major Hospital Losses Projected in 2021

Hospitals are projected to lose $54 billion in net income through 2021, according to recent analysis by the American Hospital Association. The reduced income reflects the ongoing effects of the COVID-19 pandemic, including fewer outpatient visits, greater patient acuity, and higher costs for supplies, labor, and medications.

With no end to the pandemic in sight, hospitals and health systems must evolve rapidly to ensure long-term financial health and sustainability. For many, that means adopting new measures to control labor costs, replace lost revenue, and reduce revenue leakage.

ParaRev’s comprehensive capabilities, when aligned with hospital internal teams, can help hospitals improve operating margins and collect additional revenue.

ParaRev utilizes proprietary intelligent automation and staff specialization to efficiently process all claims, regardless of size or age, for hospitals nationwide. In addition to the company’s AR recovery and resolution capabilities, ParaRev also provides denial management assistance by conducting root cause analysis and recommending process improvements to help decrease aged and denied claims going forward. ParaRev additionally offers market-based pricing tools, analytics, and consulting services that accelerate collections and improve margins for healthcare organizations.
