· Streamline payer contract management;

· Identify payment variances;

· Submit contract-based appeals;

· Increase time of service collections;

· Lower billing and contract administration costs; and

· Optimize revenue.

In addition, MPV (Austin, Tex.) says it will help the group reduce bad debt, audit payment for medical claims, and analyze the impact of new contract terms.
