MultiPlan Joins Long List of Top Companies Benefiting from eSignLive E-Signatures

August 15, 2007

Committed to lowering healthcare costs through technology, improved processes and greater connectivity, MultiPlan is a natural client for Silanis Technology, whose award-winning electronic signatures are the missing link to complete, end-to-end automation.

Montreal, QC, August 16, 2007 — Leading e-signature provider Silanis Technology is pleased to announce that MultiPlan, Inc., a growing healthcare preferred provider organization (PPO), is among hundreds of organizations to have selected Silanis solutions to eliminate paper from business processes.

MultiPlan brings together healthcare payers, providers and technology to lower the cost of medical claims. With some 40 million consumers accessing its network every year, it delivers fast, accurate and high-quality claim services.

The national healthcare network is using Silanis' ApproveIt® Desktop electronic signature solution to make internal administrative processes more efficient. For example, the use of Silanis e-signatures for procurement allows organizations to keep purchase orders and other documents electronic, rather than having to print and sign them, saving time and effort -- not to mention paper.

"As a PPO, MultiPlan helps increase the accessibility and lower the cost of healthcare," says Rich Warren, CEO, Silanis.

"E-signature technology helps healthcare organizations such as MultiPlan to deliver on their commitments to the community, by taking the focus off the paperwork."

Designed to work right out-of-the-box, Silanis' electronic approval management software integrates quickly and easily with existing business processes and the most commonly used document formats such as Microsoft Word, Excel, Adobe PDF and IBM electronic forms solutions.

The use of funds previously reserved for paper-related costs, such as printing, shipping, faxing, scanning and data re-keying, is one of many paperless benefits.

Pre-populated electronic documents also eliminate the need to re-key information from signed documents into a database.

Silanis solutions are unique because they use a digital signature to securely combine the signer's intent with user authentication and data integrity. This "document-centric" approach strengthens the legal enforceability of signed documents.
