Many hospitals, physician practices and other provider organizations are already seeing an increase in their bad debt as the current credit and mortgage crisis is causing patients to pay healthcare bills more slowly, if at all.
During Improving Patient Collections in an Unhealthy Economy: Technologies and Processes to Speed Payments, a 90-minute webinar on January 28, 2009, now available as a CD-ROM, via On Demand Web access or as a training DVD, provides practical strategies, techniques and tools to improve patient collections without alienating patients.
Within the context of the current economic environment, coupled with the increase of high-deductible health plans, many healthcare organizations are seeing a lag in patient payments. From an assessment of current processes to how operational issues and technology can improve the revenue cycle, get the details and hands-on advice you need on:
- Managing the patient revenue cycle, while preserving positive relationships;
- Analyzing the areas that directly and indirectly impact the billing and collections process;
- Implementing technology and modeling tools that improve collection rates;
- Putting policies and procedures in place that maximize patient collections from pre- to post-visit; and
- Determining if online access to patient billing will produce a return for your organization and if so, creating and managing a system that nets results
