Payment uncertainty in the U.S. healthcare system has become an exhaustive burden for all stakeholders - and further amplified by COVID-19. Healthcare costs and inconsistent volumes demand a holistic, long-term strategy for financial viability. At the same time, legislative reform and regulatory attempts to address shortfalls in quality, cost, and outcome have stalled, perpetuating inefficiencies and burdensome rules that add expenses instead of removing them.
