Stream Clearinghouse

Smart Data Stream was created by Smart Data Solutions, an thirteen-year-old front-end claims management processor, to focus on providing a value oriented, alternative solution to the inherently ineffective traditional clearinghouse model. Smart Data Stream provides automated, real-time transaction capabilities supported by our vast and continually growing network. With the support of Smart Data Solutions, Smart Data Stream is able to provide automated integration of mailroom, data capture, data editing, and real-time reporting.


Smart Data Stream will identify your top paper submitters and reach-out to them to convert them to electronic submitters. That direct out-reach also creates a one-hop connection to our payers, thus speeding submission and allowing better long-term communications and reconciliation. The first step to Smart Data's conversion process is to analyze your paper and electronic submissions to identify higher volume submitters. Through this process Smart Data reaches out to largest paper submitters, including providers and intermediate clearinghouses, to convert them to submit electronically or identify which clearinghouse is dropping the claim to paper. At the same time Smart Data will negotiate lower per transaction with providers and clearinghouses.
