American Healthcare Solutions, Inc. (AHS) has developed a proprietary methodology for the implementation of Soarian Financials. The methodology differs from Siemens methodology since it is based upon implementing Soarian in an optimal “setup”. Soarian is driven by numerous masterfiles that define how the system works. Through AHS’s hands on experience, AHS in conjunction with its clients has defined the optimal setup for the Soarian masterfiles.
Activity Based Benchmarking for Centralization Benefit Realization
AHS in conjunction with Total Benchmark Solution, LLC (TBS) www.totalbenchmarksolution.com has developed a modeling capability to model the cost and Full Time Equivalents (FTE) reductions that can be achieved with an optimal implementation of Soarian in a multi-entity healthcare systems. This modeling capability utilizes TBS’s patent pending activity based benchmarking solution. This “centralization” and cost and FTE savings analysis can be completed in approximately one month.
American Healthcare Solutions’ Expertise
The principals of AHS have more experience in the designing and implementing of Soarian Financials than any other consultants in the marketplace. We would welcome the opportunity to present the best approach to implement Soarian Financials. We would gladly stack our track record and results up against any other group of consultants. Additionally the principals of AHS have extensive revenue cycle information solutions implementation and business process redesign and performance improvement experience. We have worked with numerous healthcare organizations across the United States in helping healthcare organizations achieve peak performance in revenue cycle operations and cash flow over the past 29 years.
Model Masterfile Templates
Siemens has developed an outstanding revenue cycle solution for 2008 and beyond. There are numerous options in the Soarian solution and many would agree that there are too many options for a user to even comprehend when setting up Soarian. AHS recognized this challenge with its first implementation of Soarian and through long hours of “trial and error” working with its clients has found the optimal setup of Soarian. Through using these optimal setups of Soarian, AHS’s clients typically experience peak performance when measured nationally against metrics for days in AR, days in discharged not final billed, bad debt write-offs, administrative write-off for LMRP (LCD, NCD), etc.
Multi-Entity Naming and Numbering Templates
Soarian was designed to be implemented in multi-entity healthcare organizations that want to centralize or regionalize the “back office” patient accounting operations. However to achieve those goals the naming and numbering must be standardized across a health system. AHS has defined the optimal setup for the naming and numbering conventions within Soarian.
Client Based Teams
One of the challenges to using consultants is that once the project is done all of the expertise and knowledge “walks out the door when the consultant leaves”. AHS is different in that our approach is to teach, coach and facilitate a client-based team. We have a significant track record of creating, building and managing client based teams so that when the implementation is completed the client is self sufficient. We can provide numerous references to attest to this track record.

Through the use of AHS’s methodology and tools a Soarian Financial implementation can be completed more quickly and for lower cost by AHS than any other consultants in the marketplace.
