Dedicated to healthcare efficiency, EFFY empowers hospitals, hospital systems and Integrated Delivery Networks to retrieve, review and compare massive amounts of operational, clinical and financial data across their total enterprise -- no matter the size, data incompatibility or platform complexity. Using customizable, exception-based triggers to identify deviations from norms, users can reduce errors and denials, improve efficiency and productivity, meet compliance requirements and ensure financial viability.
Powered with unique actionable analytics, this operating platform overlays existing transactional and operational systems, functioning as a permanent, protective 24/7 auditing and reporting “umbrella” that makes data comparable and enables leaders to take action and to follow up on that action. With substantially lower upfront costs, healthcare organizations can devise rapid interventions for correcting inefficiencies and revenue leakage that impact the bottom line.
EFFY is backed by an experienced team with deep and specialized senior-level healthcare expertise in hospital financial performance, administration and operations, and clinical excellence. With US headquarters in Bethesda, Maryland, EFFY maintains an international footprint with offices in the United Kingdom, Brazil and Portugal.
