Today’s hospital staff is struggling. The lasting impact of the pandemic, partnered with the ever-growing strain on staff time, resources, and capabilities, is staggering. Add to this the pressure to increase revenue in the face of growing claim complexity and denials, and it’s no wonder healthcare administrations are feeling the strain of finding and keeping great talent.
If this sounds like your organization, it’s time to consider end-to-end revenue cycle management (RCM).
End-to-end means more efficiency
When it comes to integrating end-to-end support into your RCM, it may feel like you’re adding complexity to an already complex system. But end-to-end RCM is designed to streamline the entire revenue cycle. And while no change comes without some adjustment, the year-over-year ROI will make the initial onboarding well worth it.
With end-to-end RCM, redundancies, billing and coding errors, and other common challenges are solved with cutting-edge tech and customized management plans. This frees staff to dig deeper into opportunities to rescue more revenue while releasing them from the slog of tiresome and repetitive tasks.
End-to-end means more expertise
Even if there’s enough staff to take on your revenue cycle tasks, you can still benefit from the added insight of industry experts that have been there before. An excellent end-to-end RCM provider will be comprised of people who have experienced what it’s like to be an operator because they’ve been one themselves.
For staff, working alongside this expertise offers invaluable on-the-job training to help them grow professionally while providing significant day-to-day support.
End-to-end means more collaboration
It’s likely that the bigger your hospital or physician group, the more opportunities there are for departmental silos. How much of your investment in managing your revenue cycle is going to the same tasks done by different employees? How often do errors occur because data needs to be transferred between teams with different processes? And how much frustration (and friction) does this cause employees?
Taking a holistic approach to your revenue cycle with end-to-end RCM can improve the entire workings of your organization while empowering teams to work better—and to work better together.
End-to-end means more communication
Nothing is more discouraging to an engaged employee than feeling unheard. When you augment your RCM team with end-to-end experts, you get an outside perspective working inside your organization. This offers staff another touchpoint where they can provide feedback and help identify revenue issues that may have previously been lost in the day-to-day demands.
End-to-end means more innovation
With all the RCM tech offerings on the market, it can be difficult to determine what’s worth your investment—so you might stick with your current, less efficient options. But when you work with a leading end-to-end RCM provider, you get access to the latest revenue cycle tools and tech validated (and sometimes created) by their experts.
When industry-leading tech is implemented, it saves staff time and simplifies tasks. And it can help solve problems in the front end of the revenue cycle before they ever make it to the back. This frees teams to focus on deeper and more meaningful work that can have an additional positive impact on the revenue and your overall success.
End-to-end RCM not only raises much-needed revenue but can also increase employee satisfaction and engagement, which is a win for your organization and, ultimately, your patients.
