Company Completes Successful Third Quarter with 225% Increase in Bookings; Adds Matt Fusan to Solutions Consulting Team
November 15, 2016 – SA Ignite Inc., a leading provider of solutions that automate the management of complex value-based programs, today announced that it is growing to support the demand for its technology which helps providers adapt to changes outlined in the Medicare Access and CHIP Reauthorization Act (MACRA). In the third quarter of 2016, SA Ignite’s new bookings were 225 percent of the new bookings in Q3 2015, and the company has made strategic hires to support its continued success.
As more specifics of the Quality Payment Program become clear, SA Ignite has emerged as a leading resource for new clients like New York-based ENT & Allergy Associates, the preeminent ear, nose throat, allergy, audiology and related sub-specialty practice in the United States. “Managing quality programs can be a complex process, especially for an organization like ours, which has more than 180 physicians in 40+ locations,” said Robert Glazer, CEO of ENT & Allergy Associates. “We recently partnered with SA Ignite based on their ability to help us successfully report for 2016 while seamlessly transitioning to MIPS.”
In response to the growing demand for its solutions, SA Ignite expanded its team by 33 percent in 2016. Most recently, SA Ignite appointed Matt Fusan as its new Director of Solutions Consulting. Fusan works directly with clients to ensure that they have the right mix of solutions to successfully manage value-based programs, leveraging his deep industry knowledge to educate them on topics related to MACRA, the Quality Payment Program, and CMS Innovation Center models. With more than 15 years of expertise in the healthcare industry, Fusan previously held a variety of leadership positions at AllScripts and Blue Cross Blue Shield of North Carolina.
“We are excited to have Matt join our team, especially as we have become inundated with questions from providers across the country about how to translate the MACRA final rule to their own organizations,” said Beth Houck, Vice President of Client Services and Solutions Consulting at SA Ignite. “Many of our clients are ready to start earning rewards in their first year, and we can leverage the lessons that we’ve learned during this rehearsal year to help organizations who are still defining their goals.”
SA Ignite has a variety of resources to help answer providers’ frequently asked questions about the Quality Payment Program. The company also participates in a variety of industry events and webinars, hosted by organizations such as HFMA and CHIME, to help inform and educate providers with proactive strategies.
