Achieving the goals of Workforce Development agency – to get more people
trained and into the workforce – is accomplished via a combination of in-house
and outsourced contracted Provider services. Every step of the way, program and
fiscal managers need to track accountability for funds and compliance with
program requirements. Keeping track of services authorized, individual training
or service accounts, outcomes achieved, job placements, costs and funding
sources on a reliable and regular basis can be very paper- intensive, tedious,
time consuming and error-prone.
ProviderGateway™ helps Workforce Development agencies to:
- Track job placement, service outcomes and total
cost of services on an individual client or aggregate basis
- Monitor provider contract utilization in order
to prevent overspending, or identify under-spending early in the program
year or period
- Undertake and expand case management
capabilities to improve service coordination between providers and
client service professionals on a real time basis
- Decrease paperwork associated with provider
referrals, service authorization, invoicing, charge processing and post
- Create a complete and detailed audit trail of
every transaction associated with Client services in one or multiple
- Interface with internal accounting / payment systems and other legacy systems.
