Many systems and provider groups think they are handling patient receivables management well, but the reality is that most of them have a very antiquated patient revenue cycle management strategy. In today’s medical landscape, a proactive approach is not just preferred, it is essential.

With ANI 2014 just around the corner, I’m sure I’ll be covering this a lot more. In the mean time I thought that readers might find a whitepaper with 4 tips to significantly increase patient payment revenue useful.

The whitepaper highlights something that I’ve seen as well. Most hospital leaders think that they’re handling their patient receivables management really well. The reality is usually very different than their perspective. Once they dig into the numbers, they realize really quickly that there’s a lot that they can do to improve it.

The great part is that the 4 tips aren’t rocket science. They are all easy to understand and implement. Sometimes all you need is to read a blog post and see a whitepaper with the tips to remind you to check it out.
