Patient Access and its Link to Increased Revenue -Avontix

For a health organization to enjoy a good financial position, its revenue cycle management should be efficient enough to bring in timely payments for the claims submitted and collect the amount due from patients. When either the claims submitted are denied or patients are not paying their dues, it results in unpaid collections and bad debts for the healthcare provider. 

One of the ways to reduce revenue losses is having smart patient access. By providing smart patient access, healthcare facilities can see reduced claim denials and improve their revenue cycle management performance. To be able to do this, the RCM services professionals have to collect all the necessary information at the registration process itself. Usually, patients feel that all the work related to registration process is time-consuming and unnecessarily delays the diagnosis and treatment procedure. However, hospital registration process is very critical to collect the necessary financial compensation and payment details of patients so as to provide appropriate services. 

The various patient access responsibilities of a hospital’s staff include pre-admission services, scheduling, patient identification and gathering patient and family information. Apart from these; providing customer service, identifying special needs, insurance verification, collecting signatures for the required documentation and collecting point-of-service payments are also a part of patient access responsibilities. Having proper patient access processes by streamlining operations can bring maximum revenues to the healthcare facility. This can be achieved by utilizing the RCM services experts to identify weak points and work on them to improve the overall performance. Employing a good software application for smart patient access along with effective RCM services that are tailored to the needs of the healthcare organization facilitate prompting of upfront payments and other crucial information as and when necessary. 

Providing accurate pricing estimation to patients and the ability to view insurance benefits information in real-time are few advantages of using technology and these benefits can be availed by hiring efficient RCM services providers.
