How to manage revenue cycle and operational stability throughout a healthcare crisis (Responsive Revenue Cycle Management Virtual Conference On-demand)
The global COVID-19 pandemic has put the U.S. economy in a fragile state, causing a ripple effect down to the healthcare organizations. Many elements of this crisis are already impacting the revenue cycle, from forcing leaders to expand remote work options to more employees, to managing the surge of patient volumes, while balancing the demands for information, access and care.
In addition, even with proposed adjustments to reimbursement rates for treating COVID-19 patients, provider are financially at risk due to the loss of elective procedures and non-essential routine visits and screenings, which can be a primary source of revenue for many organizations. While delaying these visits caused short-term access issues.
Listen to this webinar to discuss how health systems and practices can drive strategies before, during and after the peak of a healthcare crisis to optimize revenue cycle operations and financial performance.
