State Renews HFMA Peer Review Designation

The Healthcare Financial Management Association (HFMA) today announced that, following rigorous review, State has once again achieved the “Peer Reviewed by HFMA®” designation for its Healthcare Bad Debt Recovery service.

State assists healthcare providers improve their financial position through its Bad Debt Recovery service while ensuring a positive patient experience. In addition to its Peer Reviewed Bad Debt Recovery service, State also partners with healthcare organizations to manage the complete revenue cycle including Pre-Service Financial Clearance, Early Out Self-Pay Resolution, and Insurance Follow-Up.

“When partnering with healthcare providers, our goal is to increase patient satisfaction while improving net recoveries,” said Tim Haag, State’s president. “We appreciate the positive feedback we receive through the Peer Review process to help us forge even stronger partnerships for a lifetime with healthcare providers.”

HFMA’s Peer Review process provides healthcare financial managers with an objective, third-party evaluation of business solutions used in the healthcare workplace. The rigorous, 11-step process includes a Peer Review panel review composed of current customers, prospects who have not made a purchase, and industry experts. The Peer Review status of the healthcare business solution and its performance claims are based on effectiveness, quality and usability, price, value, and customer and technical support.

“We’re pleased to have State renew their HFMA Peer Reviewed designation,” says HFMA President and CEO Joseph J. Fifer, FHFMA, CPA. “The HFMA Peer Review process assures our members, through a rigorous evaluation, that the reviewed healthcare business solution meets an objective, third-party assessment of overall effectiveness, quality, and value.”
