Revenue Cycle Management with Capital Link
June 20 @ 10:00 am - 11:30 amFree
The revenue cycle comprises processes other than billing and collecting. The billing department is often the focus of the revenue cycle process; however, many functions occur before the claim reaches the billing department to bill and collect on claims effectively. Factors that affect the health center’s ability to receive revenue for services rendered are often controlled by scheduling, registration, information technology, personnel, and providers. This training will provide an overview of the factors influencing the revenue cycle and ways to consider improving the process. The material presented will provide a comprehensive view of the revenue cycle and the importance of each individual function to the whole. The training will not include specific billing, coding, or claim documentation information. An effective revenue cycle requires that all functions be integrated and operate well in order for a claim to be paid properly and on time; your revenue cycle will only be as good as each of the individual processes. The strength or weakness of each function can make or break the entire process.
During this training, participants will:
- Review the various aspects of the revenue cycle and the importance of each role in a successful model.
- Discover influences (internal and external) on health center revenue cycle management and strategize ways to improve or strengthen the RCM process.
- Determine ways to improve processes that result in more efficient workflows in each revenue cycle role.
