Webinar Summary 

Princeton Baptist Medical Center will demonstrate its consolidated pre-arrival unit. The unit is designed to achieve contact with 100% of scheduled registrations. An important component of the unit is an automated insurance verification tool, which includes processes to provide patient information, answer patient questions, and collect patient out-of-pocket amounts. This tool ensures that hospital staff has the most up-to-date information about patient financial obligations when communicating with patients prior to their arrival, including information from physicians.

Topics Covered

  • Key performance indicator measurements for patient access, health information management, and patient financial services
  • Action plans for key strategic performance indicators
  • Process plan for integrating training and coaching into continuous quality improvement efforts.

Learning Objectives

  • Implement a consolidated pre-arrival unit to increase POS collections, decrease wait times, increase patient satisfaction and increase data accuracy 
  • Create a continuous feedback loop throughout the revenue cycle to reduce errors and rework 
  • Integrate physicians into the scheduling process to increase customer satisfaction
