Why Outsource Revenue Cycle Management?
Choosing the right business partner for medical billing and coding services can help your practice maximize revenue and reduce expenses. Revenue cycle management (RCM) encompasses these core functions and consists of the methodologies and tools commonly utilized by healthcare practices and institutions to evaluate patients’ financial status, issue claims/bills, and collect corresponding payments. The revenue cycle officially begins when a patient schedules an appointment and a staff member captures the patient’s name, telephone number, and insurance information. The completion of the revenue cycle is official when that particular patient’s account states they owe $0 for services rendered. Unless your revenue cycle is efficiently managed, you may find that your ability to remain financially stable is compromised.
