Research shows 15 cents of every healthcare dollar is put towards revenue cycle inefficiencies. In other words, $400 billion of the $2.7 trillion the United States spends each year on healthcare goes towards claims processing: ie billing, payments, revenue cycle management, and bad debt.
Why? Well, a part of the reason is attributed to outdated and inefficient manual methods when it comes to payor-provider transactions. The government has made a step in the right direction by passing the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act (ACA) in 2010. This effort makes healthcare as a whole more consumer-driven and transforms the hospital revenue cycle space. However, with patient liability for costs on the rise and their ability to pay down balances on the decline, strong revenue cycle performance is clearly necessary in order to build up the financial health of providers.
That’s where national revenue cycle management comes in. As regulations get even more confusing and payer requirements more complex, management of the revenue cycle becomes increasingly necessary in casting the largest net possible for national medical service providers, practices and clinics. You can do your part to combat declining cash flows, tightening margins, and increasing bad debt through effective revenue cycle management that ensures a steady stream of income for your business.
