After years of adding extra administrative burden for providers with paperwork or call centers for pre-certification and utilization review, many health plans recognize the need to streamline their systems and processes. Where imaging is concerned — the largest cost segment of the diagnostic process that continues to grow annually — Sage HMS offers a technology-driven process improvement tool. RadWise® reduces redundancy, unnecessary orders, controls errors and saves money. Using RadWise, Sage HMS found that one health system saved more than $4.00 per member per month on its high tech procedures (see Value Proposition/Efficiencies).

Sustainable savings derived from a focus on quality and patient safety.
