CardWeb.com’s CardData database of Company Profiles today features ZirMed.
It all started in 1999. Healthcare providers and organizations desperately needed a better way to manage fee-for-service healthcare business performance. Reimbursement-related workflows were manual, cumbersome, and convoluted. Staff were drowning in paper, it was difficult to get paid fully”and it was impossible to get paid quickly.
So ZirMed invented the answer: cloud-based claims management. We were the first company ever to transmit a claim over the Internet. We streamlined front- and back-office workflows, and enabled providers to understand and improve financial performance.
Today, those solutions and insights remain vital, but provider organizations face new and unprecedented challenges as reimbursement models change, patient financial responsibility soars, payments fall, and costs spiral upward.
Fortunately, ZirMed”and our clients”are ready, with more sophisticated technology and more effective solutions than ever before.
