ZirMed Wins THINKstrategies’ Best of SaaS Showplace (BoSS) Award

THINKstrategies, Inc., the leading strategic consulting company focused on the business implications of the Cloud Computing services market, announced today that ZirMed, a leading health information connectivity and management solutions company, has been named a winner of the Best of SaaS Showplace (BoSS) Award. This program promotes the measurable business benefits delivered by today’s Software-as-a-Service (SaaS) solutions.

The BoSS Awards is an ongoing program administered by THINKstrategies’ Cloud Computing Showplace to recognize SaaS companies that are delivering measurable business benefits to specific user organizations. These benefits can include increased sales, lower costs, higher customer satisfaction, faster operations and greater profitability                         .

ZirMed’s cloud-based network facilitates, manages and analyzes billions of healthcare transactions, driving bottom-line performance with clinical communications, comprehensive analytics, eligibility, claims management, coding compliance, reimbursement management and patient payment services including credit card processing, online payments, statements, estimation and payment plan management.

Advanced Medical Imaging (AMI), a healthcare provider that offers a full range of diagnostic imaging and intervention services in the metro Denver, Colorado area, had a low up-front collection rate on patient financial responsibility balances. In January 2013, AMI decided to implement ZirMed’s Patient Estimation solution, a web-based solution that enables provider organizations to accurately determine a patient’s financial responsibility prior to service or care. Just a few months after implementation, AMI was able to increase its point-of-care patient collections by over 300%.

Based on this client success story, ZirMed has been named a Best of SaaS Showplace (BoSS) Award winner.

“We’ve always operated on a cloud-based SaaS system because it provides our clients with easy to install, easy to access and easy to use applications and solutions,” said Tom Butts, CEO, ZirMed. “Being named a BoSS Award winner is a testament to our deep commitment to helping our clients  achieve results and how our modern technology is making the business of healthcare faster and more efficient.”

“Controlling healthcare costs without jeopardizing the quality of patient care is a pivotal issue today,” stated Jeffrey M. Kaplan, Managing Director of THINKstrategies, the strategic consulting firm which conceived and administers the Cloud Computing Showplace. “ZirMed’s Cloud-based solution enables healthcare providers to better understand and control their costs while ensuring that they can still deliver quality services to their clients.”
