Cirius is dedicated to producing highly configurable, compliant software applications that function individually and offer unique advantages when integrated with our other products.
The Cirius Group, Inc. was started in 1984 and incorporated in the state of California in 1987 by Paul Bartlett, President and Bernard Arghiere, Vice President, with the express purpose of developing, marketing and supporting healthcare IT software applications with specific financial purposes.
Cirius is a privately held company, headquartered in Pleasant Hill, California. Cirius began corporate life by developing the Acculog inpatient application for calculating Medicare DRG based expected reimbursement. As the Acculog product evolved, Cirius incorporated electronic remittance advice (ERA) processing, installing the initial ERA processing application in 1989.
Recognizing that an accurate calculation of expected reimbursement was dependent on a “clean” claim, Cirius developed the claim editing applications, Prebill and Accubill. The first hospital installations of Prebill occurred in early 1993 and with the advent of electronic data interchange; (EDI) Cirius developed the Accubill application with the ability to transmit electronic claims directly from provider sites to payers that same year 1993.
