Operational Review of the Revenue Cycle: Start with Scheduling
May 2 @ 9:00 am - 10:30 pmFree
A scheduling model is key to patient, provider, and staff satisfaction. Streamlining who can schedule and how your schedule is set up is essential to achieve positive outcomes in patients with complex needs (e.g., chronic conditions, multiple diagnoses). The session will include reviewing how to organize a schedule that “fits” a provider and how staff can improve documenting efforts, the collaboration of care, and decrease no-shows. The revenue cycle starts with scheduling and transitions into providing quality clinical care.
During this training, participants will:
- Describe the importance of the schedule as a part of the revenue cycle.
- Discuss ways to streamline provider scheduling.
- Determine ways to meet the needs of the provider and the patient.
- Identify how the schedule impacts documentation, the collaboration of care, and no-shows.
