Dramatic changes in the healthcare industry over the past several years require the next set of solutions to transform revenue cycle operations.
Provider consolidation, payor and reimbursement complexity, regulatory changes, and rising under-insured and uninsured populations, among other factors, have made it challenging to manage — let alone adapt and improve — the most fundamental attributes and indicators that drive revenue cycle performance.
A new level of intelligence is needed to adapt, absorb, and conform to the changing landscape. Aligning revenue cycle processes with clinical care, enhancing analytical capabilities, deploying cutting-edge technologies, and embracing an agile approach will not only reduce inefficiency and speed collections but also deliver an ROI that supports other strategic investments that help you build a healthier world.
Our clients see results. One recent engagement to deliver sustainable transformation in ambulatory and hospital revenue cycle operations resulted in:
14% reduction in A/R days
63% reduction in DNFB
42% reduction in write-offs
3.5% increase in overall net revenue
