NOTA DE PRENSA CAPTIVA USA
SAN DIEGO–Nov. 3, 2003–Captiva Software Corp., a leading provider of input management solutions, today announced that Fortis Health, one of the nation’s leading health insurance providers, has selected ClaimPack, Captiva’s award-winning claims processing solution, to capture and process the roughly 4 million HCFA and UB92 medical claim forms and related documents the organization processes every year. The value of the contract to Captiva is approximately $350,000.
Fortis Health agreed to purchase ClaimPack after a comprehensive evaluation of its abilities. With ClaimPack, Fortis Health will be able to replace its current, limited claims capture system, eliminate much of the manual keying of claims and automatically capture and process a wider variety of claim forms that it couldn’t before, such as multi-page black HCFA forms. Finally, ClaimPack will empower Fortis Health to process significantly higher volumes of claims, reduce claims processing times and increase information capture accuracy.
«We’re pleased ClaimPack surpassed Fortis Health’s stringent processing requirements,» said Jim Vickers, Captiva’s chief marketing officer. «We’re confident ClaimPack will streamline Fortis Health’s entire claims processing practice, increase productivity and accelerate the company’s ability to serve its one million customers.»
ClaimPack is Captiva’s claims processing software that automates data and image capture from complex paper and electronic HCFA and UB92 claim forms. Using the latest developments in scanning, image processing and optical character recognition (OCR) technologies, ClaimPack automatically «reads» the information on these forms, analyzes, corrects and validates the data and enters it into enterprise workflow or database management systems. This streamlined process reduces manual data entry costs and processing times, increases the accuracy of the data collected and improves customer service.
