‘Improving the quality of healthcare and clinical pathways through accurate validation of provider invoices’
Invoice validation ensures that commissioners pay the right price to their healthcare providers for activity that is of high quality and to agreed care pathways and protocols. Timely and accurate information is critical to ensure that commissioners and providers are able to agree activity and payments to the agreed Payment by Results timescales Transactional costs for NHS organisations have increased dramatically, but through automation of data reconciliation activities, local analysts can spend their time on exception reports that are focused on improving the quality of care provided to patients.
Health Intelligence can act as an ‘honest broker’ for commissioners and providers, applying mutually agreed clinical and financial rules to activity data that reduces transactional costs for all participating organisations. Rules can reflect national policy and NICE guidance and also incorporate local requirements such as Effective Use of Resources (EUR) policies. Through the secure linkage of provider activity with GP Practice clinical and referral data we are able to ensure that patients receive the treatment required for their condition and able to support the improvement of care pathways including the referral and discharge process.
