Performance Improvement

Development and application of quality processes to ensure quality data is generating consistent and timely quality information, and to develop systems that are flexible and adaptable in a constantly changing healthcare environment (for example, e-HIM®, regulatory changes, and new technology).

Revenue Cycle Management: Best Practice Tips

August 24, 2017
12:00 PM – 1:00 PM CT

*An HIM professional shares direct experience with HIM centralization, challenges that hinder progress, lessons learned, and strategies for ensuring a successful transition.
*Unbilled accounts reflect what processes are going right and which are not. Centralized versus decentralized coding departments?
*The impact of billing operations has a critical impact on financial performance. Revenue cycle encompasses all the many steps from when a patient first makes an appointment to the time there is no longer a balance on that person’s account. Coding directly impacts discharged not final billed, on-hold accounts due to external causes, and claims edits.
*Are you escalating issues and letting the C-suite know what you are doing for free?
