Sponsored by Businesswire

Beacon Healthcare Systems announced today that it will be a Silver Sponsor and exhibitor at the Industry Collaboration Effort’s (ICE) annual meeting Dec 9-10 in San Francisco. Beacon is home to the healthcare industry’s leading compliance and risk management technologies; and attendees at the conference will have the opportunity to learn how Beacon is currently helping health plans around the country add accuracy, efficiency and confidence to their operations.

Among the products Beacon will be showcasing at ICE is its Virtual Compliance Manager (VCM), the only solution in the industry to provide state-of-the-art compliance, analytics, monitoring, and regulatory guidance-tracking and routing capabilities. With separate modules for guidance, audit workflow and automated monitoring, VCM is the only solution to provide real-time auditing and monitoring of transactional data that allows a health plan the opportunity to correct and address issues immediately. Its Document Workspace Manager component helps plans distribute important information in a timely manner or assign group and individual tasks to ensure compliance and operational readiness.

Attendees stopping by the Beacon booth will also be able to learn about the company’s Virtual Appeals Manager (VAM), the industry’s most intuitive, easy-to-use appeals and grievances tool. VAM can be implemented in record time and helps reduce a massive amount of health plan letters into a manageable and efficient core of templates. Additionally, VAM has been shown to improve star ratings, which translates into additional dollars to the health plan from the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services that it can invest into better serving its members.

“Each of Beacon’s products have been designed and are supported by a team of subject-matter experts who have been on the forefront of healthcare regulatory and compliance initiatives, operations and business practices and who are acutely aware of the complex challenges today’s health plans are facing,” said Beacon CEO Ken Stockman. “We pride ourselves in being a partner health plans can trust to help manage their compliance and risk, ensuring that their business is audit ready at all times. In today’s ever-changing marketplace with increasing and stringent healthcare regulations, the need for such partnerships has never been greater.”

The annual ICE conference brings together providers, health plans, associations, state and federal agencies, and accrediting bodies to work collaboratively to improve healthcare regulatory compliance and efficiencies. Attendees at the conference will have the opportunity to hear directly from healthcare regulators on up-to-the-minute topics with speakers including senior-level managers from the CMS central office as well as CMS regional offices.
