CLEARWATER, FL – March 21, 2017 – Zelis Payments, a unit of Zelis Healthcare, is pleased to announce that it has been honored with a Bronze Medal for Most Innovative Payments Player by the 2017 Innovation Project®. Zelis’ Smart Routing healthcare payments technology was recognized at the PYMNTS’ Innovator Award Dinner on March 16, which marked the conclusion of the Innovation Project® 2017.

“Being recognized among the industry leaders who make up the winners and finalists in our category, including Loop Commerce’s GiftNowTM and Amazon’s Alexa – who won the Gold and Silver respectively – as well as Facebook Messenger and PayPal-owned Venmo, is an amazing honor, “ said Jay Ver Hulst, President of Zelis Payments. “Since inception, our goal is to be the leader in healthcare payments through uncompromising service and continuous innovation. This honor confirms our commitment and encourages us to continue developing solutions that bring added value to our payer and provider clients.”

“The PYMNTS Innovation Awards celebrate the companies, and men and women, who have made the most significant contributions to innovation in payments and commerce in the past, and the entrepreneurs who have the most promising solutions for driving innovation forward,” according to Karen Webster, CEO of PYMNTS.com.

Zelis’ Smart Routing solution was developed for large healthcare providers and health systems. It is designed to add further efficiency by speeding reconciliation time and shortening the revenue cycle. Typical claim payment and electronic remittance advice (ERA) is sent to a provider destination, but in larger systems, the funds may need to be routed elsewhere within the system. Zelis’ Smart Routing innovation aggregates electronic payments and remittance data and then routes it to the proper endpoints for increased efficiency.
