The revenue cycle is made up of many processes other than billing and collecting. The billing department is often the focus for many health centers, however, the ultimate capability to effectively bill and collect on claims is often determined by many functions that occur before the claim even reaches the billing department. Factors that affect the health center’s ability to turn services into revenue include functions controlled by scheduling, registration, information technology, personnel and providers, as well as billing and collections.
