Collaboration advances revenue cycle performance amid national healthcare reimbursement changes

Four HIM companies have combined into a single, integrated healthcare revenue cycle solutions provider under Pena4 Inc. The announcement was made by Manny Peña, RHIA, Chairman and CEO of Pena4.

By uniting H.I.M. ON CALL, Aviance Suite, Pena4 Consulting and Pena4 Tech under one umbrella, the expanded company works collectively with hospitals, health systems and clinics to improve mid-cycle operations. Complementary capabilities in outsourced services, consulting and technology deliver unmatched value for four pillars of healthcare reimbursement: coding and auditing, revenue cycle consulting, business process management, and clinical revenue integrity including clinical documentation improvement (CDI).

“Over the last several years, health information and revenue cycle leaders have experienced a shift toward new reimbursement models and an increasingly integrated approach to financial proficiency,” said Peña. “Pena4 is distinctly positioned to connect the dots between mid-cycle revenue processes, workflows and operations. We offer a unique, single-vendor approach, now preferred by many financial and HIM leaders.”

Realizing that medical record coding is only one component of a profitable revenue cycle process, Pena4 significantly expands the scope of each individual division’s healthcare solutions, including two AHIMA-recognized gold partners, H.I.M. ON CALL and Aviance Suite, Inc. (Central Learning).

Pena4 represents the culmination of 22 years of industry experience as a leading health information management solutions and coding services organization. The integrated company employs over 300 coding, CDI and revenue cycle experts who have served hundreds of healthcare provider organizations and processed millions of medical records. As a combined company, Pena4 offers clients a comprehensive, one-vendor partnership to thrive in today’s data-intensive reimbursement environment.

“We believe collaboration and teamwork are essential to receive all the reimbursement healthcare providers deserve. The move from volume to value is in full swing, making Pena4’s data-driven approach to revenue cycle management even more important—and very relevant,” said Joseph J. Gurrieri, RHIA, CHP,  President, Service Products & Technology, Pena4 Inc.
