EMH Regional Medical Center Selects TransUnion's Healthcare Revenue Cycle Platform to Help Reduce Its Bad Debt
Date:1/30/2008

CHICAGO, Jan. 30 /PRNewswire/ -- EMH Regional Healthcare System has selected TransUnion's Healthcare Revenue Cycle Platform (HRCP) to help address increasing bad debt and streamline administration of its charity care policy.

"By objectively and quickly identifying those patients who qualify for charity care that would otherwise be considered bad debt at the point of service, we'll benefit in three ways. First, we can protect those unable to pay and our non-profit status. Second, we'll significantly reduce administrative work involved in pr
