Smart Data expands its front-end EDI capabilities

St. Paul, Minnesota - November 8, 2010 - Smart Data Solutions, a Minnesota-based provider of data processing solutions for the health care industry, has expanded its EDI capabilities to encompass the entire front-end processing needs of health care administrators. These expanded services provide a simplified solution that minimize each transaction's cost and turn around time.

Specifically, Smart Data's Manage Care Gateway aggregates the large amount of disperse data that is currently exchanged, performs uniform edits on all transactions, and returns it in a single, preferred format. In addition, interfaces allow payers and providers to submit, reject and edit claims online. These interfaces create a streamlined process that:

  1. Reduce transaction turn around time.
  2. Reduce the cost of returned claims.
  3. Reduce the number of service calls (further lowering the overall per claim cost).

In addition, Smart Data's Clearinghouse Services leverage Smart Data's numerous connections throughout the healthcare industry. These services provide greater EDI connectivity and reduced paper for its clients, resulting in a lower per transaction cost.

All of Smart Data's EDI services are supplemented with simple, clear and extensive online interfaces including its reversal interface for rejecting and resubmitting claims, its 835 display in a readable format, its provider portal interface for submitting claims, and its comprehensive real-time reporting that provide complete claim transparency.

In a field as dynamic as health care technology, Smart Data stands out for its stability and growth. For more than ten years, Smart Data Solutions Inc. has been leveraging technology to meet the needs of health care claims managers. Today, more than 100 TPAs, PPOs, HMOs, hospitals and insurance companies depend on SDS technology to save money and streamline their business. From paper processing to claims management and EDI, Smart Data Solutions offers the solutions critically needed by today's health care industry.
