Revenue cycle management companies TransEngen Inc. (Norwalk, Conn.) and Passport Health Communications Inc. (Franklin, Tenn.) have reached an agreement to jointly offer a comprehensive financial triage solution to health care providers.

The companies say that together they will improve the process of screening health care patients prior to treatment to determine eligibility for assistance and decrease bad debt.

Passport will integrate TransEngen’s HelpEngen solution into its Patient Access Suite to provide medical assistance and charity care assessment for uninsured patients and others who are unable to pay for their health care. HelpEngen enables financial counselors and other employees to screen patients’ eligibility for appropriate government benefit programs such as Medicaid, SCHIP and even non-medical type programs such as food stamps. The software generates prefilled application forms and supports all aspects of the enrollment process, says the company.

Passport will incorporate HelpEngen into its solutions for patient verification and managing patient payments to help perform an up-front medical assistance analysis, where necessary.
