The company delivers comprehensive end-to-end cloud-based business and clinical performance management solutions to meet the challenges of managing population health and optimizing fee-for-service and fee-for-value reimbursements.

Metrics increasingly drives today’s healthcare providers in every phase of their operations. As payment models shift from encounter-based to performance-based, analytics plays a critical role in both understanding and managing the cost of care and in determining how to accurately collect and distribute payments across a health system. ZirMed’s analytics solution provides insight into the operational and financial performance of enterprises and practices by keeping track of timely metrics and delivering actionable information to help drive the decisions that move an organization forward. The company’s cloud-based solutions integrate the data from all patient accounting and clinical systems—extract the actionable insights needed to optimize revenue cycle and manage population health for better clinical outcomes, lower costs, and higher net revenue. “ZirMed’s nationwide network processes over 750 million transactions each year, giving us insight into the performance of nearly every practice size and specialty in the U.S.,” says Tom Butts, Chairman and CEO of ZirMed. “We use that expertise to help clients gain a deeper understanding of the ways their payers, patients, and processes affect their bottom-line—with practice performance dashboards, KPI alerts, and rich interactive reporting.”

ZirMed’s data mining algorithms scrutinize every element on an account and provide insights and advanced workflow that organizational staff needs to pinpoint and correct breakdowns that reduce reimbursement—whether they come from an overlooked charge, a bundling issue, a missed diagnosis, or a misinterpretation of an operative report.
