Healthcare Scoring System Allows Hospitals To Increase Charity Care
Date:12/16/2009

nd accurate. Its custom scoring solution draws vital information from a combination of credit data, demographic data and internal hospital financial files.

"Our charity-care score provides a much clearer picture of patient presumptive charity because of the amount of data used to develop the model," Krishnaswami said. "Also, it is highly defensible because it is custom-built for each hospital."

A leader in global information solutions, Equifax Inc., partners with Medlytix in its healthcare division to provide effective and impactful presumptive-charity scoring solutions to hospitals today.

"Our healthcare-specific scores help medical-care providers to effectively direct patients toward the charity application process," said Dann Adams, president of Equifax Consumer Information Solutions. "The goal with Medlytix is to have a process for addressing these situations where the patients' necessary documentation is lacking. Medlytix's solution is state-of-the-art in determining presumptive charity for those patients."

In addition to its high degree of effectiveness, Medlytix's custom charity-care scoring model provides an objective, unbiased methodology that is highly defensible under an audit or review of discriminatory practices, especially when carried out on the back end of patient service.

"In fact, we recommend that hospitals use our custom methodology well into their revenue cycle, just prior to making a bad-debt classification decision," Krishnaswami said. "Numerous case studies and our own clients prove that utilizing scoring at the point of service is much less effective from a cost-benefit standpoint."
