Plexis Healthcare Systems and Context 4 Healthcare, Inc. Announce Expanded Partnership for FirstPass(TM) Real Time Claim Editing Solution

Partnership to Provide Plexis Quantum Choice(TM) Clients With Fully Integrated Claim Editing With Context 4 Healthcare's FirstPass System

NAPERVILLE, IL and ASHLAND, OR -- (Marketwired) -- 03/04/14 -- Context 4 Healthcare, Inc., a leading provider of software solutions for challenges related to detection of fraud, waste and abuse in the healthcare industry, and Plexis Healthcare Systems, a leading provider of enterprise-class, state-of-the-art healthcare benefits administration software, today announced a partnership that will enable Plexis clients using the Quantum Choice™ healthcare benefit management technology to easily implement the Context FirstPass™ claims editing solution in order to streamline their adjudication process while increasing claims auto-adjudication rates.

The integration of Context's FirstPass™ real-time claim editing solution with the Plexis Quantum Choice™ software provides customers with the seamless use of Next Generation technology from two leaders in their fields. During the adjudication process, FirstPass™ utilizes real time editing, firing rules containing millions of code combinations to identify professional and facility claims that are non-compliant, inaccurate, or require investigation for fraud, waste or abuse (FWA) before they are paid and populate downstream applications. The pre-payment detection of potential FWA situations is key to effective management of the health plan's costs and provides a clear alternative to the traditional FWA "pay and chase" administration model. Within Quantum Choice™, customers will be able to take immediate action upon claim issues found by FirstPass, making corrections that increase payment accuracy.

"Plexis had reviewed the capabilities of many claim editing solutions on the market today when determining which one would make the most sense to meet our clients and target markets' particular needs. To start, the product/service had to be able to work effectively in real time as an extension of Quantum Choice's™ auto-adjudication process; as well, the chosen vendor had to have flexible pricing offerings for our diverse client base. We found the FirstPass™ solution from Context to be the one that provided the most value for our particular needs, and given that Plexis had an existing relationship with Context (for use of its UCR data for pricing claims), it made sense to expand that relationship with FirstPass," said Sean Garrett, COO of Plexis.

Mark Earles, President and CEO of Context, notes, "We're excited to be working with an advanced technology partner such as Plexis. Introducing FirstPass™ into Quantum Choice™ for real time editing will allow our mutual customers to realize immediate savings through increased claims payment accuracy and advanced fraud, waste and abuse detection, all the while reducing overall administrative cost."
