Healthcare systems are increasingly being confronted with the need to implement next-generation revenue cycle management solutions in order to keep their organizations solvent, especially as a result of the Affordable Care Act and the rising out-of-pocket responsibilities of consumers.
As a result, pre-service estimates, financial counseling, payment plans and cash collection at point-of-service (POS) are becoming important improvement initiatives for many organizations. When these services are effectively integrated within the revenue cycle processes, reimbursement amounts can become increasingly predictable. This, in turn, enables realistic and accurate forecasting of cash targets.

Improve cash collection targets by engaging a revenue cycle management outsource partner who can make an impact on either side of the patient’s clinical experience, pre-and-post service. Providing clear and consistent conversations about patient payment expectations, estimate transparency and providing financial assistance and counseling early in the patient engagement often means more cash collected.
