Alleviant Enables Providers to Focus on Care Rather than Collections

CHICAGO--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Jun. 26, 2012-- Navigant Consulting, Inc. subsidiary, Alleviant, LLC, a broad-based physician billing and collections company with a strong client base, assists large integrated physician organizations to drive financial performance.

“Health systems that employ physicians and independent physician organizations function most efficiently and effectively when they focus on care delivery and the financial effectiveness of their organizations,” said John Boland, Managing Director with Navigant Healthcare and head of Alleviant. “With mounting pressure to reduce costs and cope with shifting reimbursement regulations, Alleviant allows health systems and physician organizations to focus on their patients and the communities that they serve by contracting with Alleviant to perform their physician billing and collections activities and assume the administrative headaches, costs and time sensitivities related to getting paid.”

Alleviant’s processes and systems help to measurably shorten payment times and improve the accuracy of bill processing and cash collections. At the same time, unlike many of Alleviant’s competitors, Alleviant teams with clients to leverage the clients’ existing resources, investments and platforms, allowing physician organizations to maintain control of their data.

Alleviant’s U.S. based processing centers in South Dakota also offer reliability and cost advantage over most alternatives, providing physician organizations a lower-cost alternative to manage the profitability and growth of their organization over time.

Alleviant is backed by a deep bench of industry thought leaders and consultants within Navigant Healthcare who assist health systems, physician organizations and payers in designing, developing and implementing integrated solutions that create high-performing healthcare organizations.

“With the power of Navigant behind it, Alleviant is a problem solver, not just another outsourced vendor,” said Alex Hunter, Managing Director and a Navigant Healthcare practice leader. “Alleviant partners with physician organizations and works collaboratively to design, develop and implement high-performing professional revenue cycle solutions.”
