Low Balance Solution
Colburn Hill has developed a Low Balance Strategy using Big Data and Six-Sigma techniques to generate much
more cash than hospitals typically get through factoring or traditional outsourcing of their low balance
accounts. Using proprietary technology, we screen your old, low balance claims to distinguish the potentially
collectible from those that should definitely be written-off. 100% of the potentially collectible accounts are then analyzed and rebilled. Where appropriate, claims are adjusted-off using Robotic Process Automation.

CAMS (Cash Application Management Solution)
Colburn Hill created its proprietary Cash Application Management Solution (CAMS) to eliminate month-end headaches and
greatly reduce the staff resources hospitals need to devote to Cash Reconciliation. Through a web portal accessible
by any user you authorize, CAMS provides an at-a-glance dashboard which displays pending or completed batches, quantifies
posting backlogs, and easily reconciles cash on a daily basis. Through a simple interface with your treasury function,
it ensures that the cash you see in your billing system is the same as that you see in your bank accounts.

Priority Work Queue Management
Most workflow tools try to do too much, integrating with patient accounting systems, medical records, imaging, and bringing in 835 or other denials data. As a result, they are expensive to install, require significant training, and incur material ongoing maintenance costs. And despite all the bells and whistles, staff often use the workflow tool to find an account and then go back to the legacy systems, ignoring all the fancy workflow attributes. Our Priority workflow tool acknowledges how staff actually work and provides a simple interface to present an account and track activity. The simplicity reduces the installation and training effort while maintaining the ability to focus effort where it is most needed and manage productivity.
