Unisys Selects Edifecs Healthcare Accelerator Suite

Edifecs, a provider of b2b solutions, has announced that Unisys, a provider of outsourcing and infrastructure services, has selected the Edifecs Healthcare Accelerator suite to automate data validation for healthcare transactions in both real-time and batch modes within the product and development areas of the Unisys Healthcare Payer Administrative Solution.

The Edifecs Healthcare suite helps states align their business missions with enabling technologies. It provides Medicaid agencies the ability to standardize electronic transactions, supply provider and member self-service capabilities and support new healthcare funding models.

Sunny Singh, CEO of Edifecs, said: "In response to Medicaid reform challenges, state Medicaid programs are increasingly moving away from costly legacy systems to flexible IT solutions, like Edifecs Healthcare Accelerator Suite, that handle electronic and web-based transactions, integrate with multiple agencies and handle changes and controls to reduce operational and administrative costs. Edifecs healthcare accelerator suite helps states reduce administrative and operating costs; better manage and control enrollments and eligibility; and adhere to increasing policy standards and changing business rules."
