With patients increasingly responsible for more out-of-pocket expenses, correctly identifying self-pay patients and capturing maximum reimbursement for all services rendered can be a labor-intensive exercise. Payment visibility requires providers to have a clear and accurate picture of who the payer is and what they will ultimately pay. This webinar offers effective strategies to help healthcare revenue cycle management (RCM) professionals protect revenue while reducing the administrative burden associated with collection and at the same time, improving the patient experience.
RCM leaders will learn how to:
Protect revenue with AR optimization strategies
Leverage technology to reduce labor-intensive activities
Improve the patient’s financial experience
