Healthcare Provider Speeds Invoicing with a Blue Prism Digital Worker

Mercy Radiology offers a broad range of state-of-the-art diagnostic and interventional radiological services at 13 different clinics. On a mission to become New Zealand’s leading bionic radiology provider, the healthcare provider was still operating with a manual invoicing and receipting system. This was both time intensive and prone to error. Mercy needed a more efficient way to manage this process. So, they hired Matilida, a Blue Prism intelligent digital worker.

Challenge

Unlike healthcare systems in some countries, New Zealand offers its citizens access to the Accident Compensation Corporation (ACC) scheme. In the event of an accident, Kiwis’ healthcare costs are fully covered by ACC, and this also includes the cost of diagnostics. However, this means that Mercy doesn’t always invoice patients directly. Invoices had to be created and held by Mercy’s Radiology Information System (RIS).

Solution

Having consulted with local partner Virtual Blue, Mercy Radiology deployed a Blue Prism intelligent digital worker. Fondly dubbed Matilda, she quickly took over invoicing and receipting. Now, when an invoice is logged in RIS, Matilda picks it up, automatically determines the correct payer, and lodges it through their online portal. At the same time, Matilda cross checks the patient details against the person’s National Health Identifier (NHI) number to ensure accuracy. Matilda now handles 98% of invoices automatically.
