The University awarded a contract for Advisory Board healthcare software to The Advisory Board Inc., Washington, DC, for an estimated $1,468,260.
The Advisory Board Company has developed a unique program called the Revenue Cycle Compass (RCC). The University of Illinois Health Center was one of its cohort sponsors. This resulted in the development of a number of unique products specifically tailored to UI Health Center and its operational structure. Today, these products are utilized to track daily performance of the entire revenue cycle. The unique structure and robust capabilities of these products result in significant annual savings. It is estimated that healthcare system saves approximately $ 500,000 dollars in FTE costs every year by having direct and timely access to financial information for users across the healthcare system 24/7. The Department of Finance uses compass tools to protect over 125 million dollars in revenue annually.
The University has determined that this purchase is only economically available from this source because the procurement is software license, upgrade or maintenance.
