DCIís web-based Hospital Contracting application empowers health care professionals to quickly measure the financial impact of existing and proposed inpatient contracts.   The application performs three primary functions:

  • Model proposed contracts using historical contracts and claims
  • Trend actual claims experience to the expected experience of a model

The ease of use and speed of the application modeling features will provide the following benefits:
  • Complex options can be quickly modeled to determine financial impact
  • More model options can be completed using less employee resources
  • Contracts will be negotiated based on knowledge, not assumption
  • Counter proposals can be analyzed immediately, eliminating last minute negotiating tactics
  • Model analyses are repeatable, use consistent methodologies
The claim validation features will provide the following benefits:
  • Incorrect payments are discovered and corrected in a timely manner.
  • Automated claims pricing provides greater accuracy.
