// Success story / 2017

Billing center in the field of health insurance reduces manual rework by 50%.

matchmaker manages 3.75 million search queries per month in best time.

Initial situation

The BKK Abrechnungszentrum Emmendingen checks accounting documents of more than 150 health insurance companies with a total of more than 7 million members. Each affiliated health insurance provider regularly sends its complete database of insured persons to the billing center. This is automatically searched for the insured person's master data as part of the verification process.

If a record is not found, the health insurers receive the data back and have to reprocess it manually. An improved master data search should increase the hit rate to reduce cost-intensive manual post-processing.

Over 150 health insurance companies with more than 7 million members.

Task and requirements

The search technology should be able to handle a query volume of 3.75 million queries per month. At the same time, the response time should not exceed a maximum of 400 ms. In addition, the post-processing rate was to be significantly reduced.

Due to the error-tolerant search, matchmaker is able to identify master data unambiguously, even in the case of incorrect search queries or incomplete data. This can also significantly reduce manual post-processing.

Reduction of manual effort

All requests from insured persons, approx. 3.75 million per month, are processed at the BKK billing center in Emmendingen using exorbyte matchmaker.
