MINNEAPOLIS--(BUSINESS WIRE)--ABILITY Network, a leading healthcare technology company, announced that Tufts Health Plan will leverage the myABILITY platform for professional claims submission service to streamline provider communications functions.
Through this new agreement, all Tufts Health Plan providers will now have direct access to online EDI transaction capabilities through MD On-Line and the myABILITY platform, linked from Tufts Health Plan’s website. The service will allow providers to submit HIPAA-secure administrative transactions to Tufts Health Plan electronically.
“We believe implementing the MD On-Line service will help us to more effectively and efficiently communicate with providers, creating a more streamlined process for claims processing and other transactions,” said Donna Breen, Tufts Health Plan’s Director of Commercial Claims operations. “This is a great step forward, particularly for our providers who were previously submitting paper-based transactions.”
“ABILITY is proud to provide the necessary technology through the myABILITY platform to help Tufts Health Plan improve their electronic communications capabilities,” said Bud Meadows, Executive Vice President of ABILITY. “This relationship demonstrates our continuing commitment to helping providers operate a more efficient practice through the use of secure and reliable electronic transactions.”
ABILITY Network acquired MD On-Line in November 2014, adding their offerings to the ABILITY suite of software services that simplify the administrative and clinical complexities of healthcare. Today, ABILITY Network supports care providers across the continuum—in ambulatory, acute and post-acute settings.
