Emdeon launches healthcare efficiency index
A new index launched by Nashville-based revenue cycle management company Emdeon would track the healthcare industry's move to an electronic system from a paper-based and phone-based one. The company has unveiled the U.S. Healthcare Efficiency Index, saying it aims to raise awareness about potential for cost savings on the business side of healthcare. For example, it estimates $11 billion could be saved a year through direct deposit of medical payment transactions.
