The application period for the Healthcare Financial Management Association’s MAP Award for High Performance in Revenue Cycle opens today, November 27. This award recognizes organizations whose innovative and effective strategies have enabled them to achieve excellence in revenue cycle performance. The five award categories include hospitals, critical access hospitals, hospital systems, integrated delivery systems, and physician practices.
Winners excel in meeting industry standard revenue-cycle benchmarks, implementing the patient-centered recommendations and best practices embodied in HFMA’s Healthcare Dollars & Sense initiatives, and achieving outstanding patient satisfaction.
Presbyterian Health System Vice President of Revenue Cycle Management Brad Cook, a 2018 winner, said “Applying for the HFMA MAP Award…is incredibly rewarding and thought provoking. Our ongoing pursuit of this recognition keeps our team continuously focused on innovation and process improvement and provides an opportunity to celebrate our successes.”
The first part of the application is due on February 18, 2019. Several enhancements have been made to simplify and streamline the application process. Organizations that qualify for further consideration will be contacted in March to submit the second and final part of the application. Award winners will be recognized at HFMA’s Annual Conference, to be held June 23-26, 2019, in Orlando. Award recipients are acknowledged as industry leaders and share proven strategies with their peers.
