Dallas, TX November 2, 2011 - OpenConnect, the leader in business process intelligence and workforce solution, today announced that it will host the “Driving Administrative Cost Reductions by Improving Service Processes and Workforce Productivity” symposium at AHIP Fall Forum 2011 at the Renaissance Hotel in Chicago on November 15th. Edward M.L. Peters, OpenConnect CEO, will host the breakfast symposium. Joining Mr. Peters will be John Cicchino, Director of NASCO’s Business Effectiveness Unit.
A key measure of efficiency in claims processing for healthcare insurance payers is operational first pass rate. The session will spotlight both NASCO and OpenConnect efforts to drive leading practice first pass rates and workforce productivity improvements that have achieved significant (and sustained) cost reductions for healthcare insurance payers.
“In today’s service economy, insurance executives face significant challenges in understanding how to achieve lower administrative costs while at the same time improving workforce productivity”, said Mr Peters. “Our discussion will focus on innovative, proven solutions that have helped both NASCO and OpenConnect customers achieve improved financial performance in the areas of claims auto-adjudication, adjustments and worker performance”.
