Summary

Today, U.S. hospitals and health systems provide more than $35.7 billion in uncompensated care annually to their patients1. The rising number of high-deductible health plans and the shift of state participation in Medicaid expansion means healthcare organizations must collect a larger share of revenue directly from patients. The challenge is to do so in a way that both strengthens the patient experience and decreases bad debt liability, all without experienced staff.  

This webinar will discuss a recent study2 on the state of consumer engagement and how consumers are engaging differently with hospitals and health systems on their financial responsibility. In addition, attendees will learn key ways that outsourcing the management of patient collections can help healthcare organizations take a more proactive approach to decrease bad debt while improving the patient financial experience.
