Waystar for children’s hospitals

Supporting a family-centric revenue cycle

At Waystar, we understand that optimizing administrative and financial workflows can help your patients get the care they need, when they need it—and relieve stress for their parents and families.

Waystar is your end-to-end revenue cycle partner, simplifying the entire financial process so that your team reaches new heights in efficiency and service. Together, we can ensure your patients and their families remember the world-class care they received—not the payments and processes that got in the way.

Let’s work together

Automate + streamline your workflows

Imagine if verifying eligibility, getting procedures authorized and triaging payer exceptions were fast and simple. This would not only take the burden off your team, but also ensure a smoother and less stressful experience for your patients and their families. With Waystar, your team will be empowered to:

  • Improve patient access. Reduce financial stress for families + payer burden for staff so children receive specialized care without delay.
  • Automate manual tasks. Intelligently streamline stubborn revenue cycle inefficiencies to elevate user performance.
  • Expand your ambulatory reach. Bend the cost curve and get paid faster + fuller by expanding the care continuum to lower acuity settings.
  • Put patients + families first. Transform the financial experience and heighten service goals so your team can focus on patients, not payments.

Untangle payer complexity

Medicaid is your largest payer, and it comes with an array of challenges, from navigating the managed care market to ensuring you get paid for the services provided to your most vulnerable patients. Waystar can help you protect your bottom line with:

  • Smarter + richer eligibility response to clearly identify managed care plans, Medicaid spenddown amounts and hidden insurance coverage
  • Automated referrals* + authorizations to identify, submit, status and curate complete payer details directly in workflows
  • A customized claims ecosystem to manage highly specialized claims and expedite speed to reimbursement
  • Intelligent claims monitoring, including expediting appeals to over 800 payers, to proactively appeal denials

On the horizon for children’s hospitals
