|Single, seamless claims experience to optimize efficiency, deliver optimal workers' compensation savings
CHICAGO and SAN DIEGO, July 27 -- Aon eSolutions, the technology solutions business of Aon Corporation (NYSE: AON), and Mitchell SmartAdvisor Solutions™, a division of Mitchell International, a leading provider of information, workflow and performance management solutions to the Property and Casualty claims and collision repair industries, today announced that they have established an exclusive partnership to deliver an end-to-end claims and medical bill review solution for the workers' compensation industry.
Effectively managing claims and controlling skyrocketing medical costs are key challenges in the workers' compensation industry, problems compounded by having separate claims and bill review systems. This complex technology environment can create workflow inefficiencies, process delays and higher administrative expenses. Organizations have long demanded a holistic approach to the workers' compensation claims and medical bill review process.
Aon eSolutions has been at the forefront of delivering an integrated solution to address this need with the iVOS system, the industry's most comprehensive claims technology solution, and now joins forces with Mitchell to dramatically enhance its offering. Mitchell SmartAdvisor is a market leading bill review solution for workers' compensation, providing a unique combination of performance software and managed care services. As a result of this partnership, Aon eSolutions will replace its existing bill review engine by embedding SmartAdvisor into iVOS, creating an offering that will streamline operations, increase transaction speed and accuracy, enhance productivity, improve medical and administrative savings, and facilitate compliance.
"Aon eSolutions and Mitchell are bringing a best-of-breed approach to bear on today's most difficult workers' compensation challenges, resulting in efficiency gains and cost savings that our clients really need in this tough economic climate," said Kathy Burns, CEO of Aon eSolutions. "With SmartAdvisor, iVOS clients now gain access to an enhanced and broader breadth of bill review options and capabilities from the iVOS desktop."
"Leveraging the power of both iVOS and SmartAdvisor, organizations gain a single platform that is comprehensive and intelligent," said Nina Smith, senior vice president and general manager of Mitchell International SmartAdvisor Solutions. "This partnership enables clients to benefit from the complementary strengths of two industry-leading organizations. Mitchell and Aon will continue to focus on respective core competencies, but also invest in an expanded joint offering to include innovations in technology, services and cost-containment capabilities."
A detailed overview of this seamless claims experience will be unveiled at Aon eSolutions' Client Conference in September. For more information, visit www.aon-esolutions.com/aonES/Events/Experience+Conference.
