Revenue Cycle Management 101 – A New eBook from Upp Technology
By SMART Health Claims
This is a beginners guide for local health providers, offering an easy-to-understand explanation of the many aspects of healthcare billing and best practices for maximizing revenue in your organization
Generating revenue is an afterthought for many health providers. Local health organizations have a larger mission than making money. They are called on to protect the health of their communities, regardless of insurance coverage or ability to pay.
Yet, as public funding steadily declines, there is an increasing threat to the sustainability of local health providers. They must now take funding matters into their own hands and generate revenue through improved billing practices. By maximizing their reimbursements from billing Medicare, Medicaid, and private health insurance companies, they can retain their current staff and increase the services they provide to their communities.
Smarter, efficient billing practices provide sustainable funding for local health agencies, boosting revenues by up to 70%
In our new eBook, Revenue Cycle Management 101, we provide local health providers with a basic, fundamental understanding of revenue cycle management, the process of bringing in revenue for the health services you are providing. We explore the entire claims process, explain the process and benefits of becoming an in-network provider, and look at new ways to optimize your billing program.
While generating revenue seems like corporate practice used in the for-profit world, local health departments can significantly benefit from implementing a successful program.
