Finding the Value in the Charge Master

Stethoscope and laptop

Hospitals and health systems need to regularly assess their hospital and physician charge description masters (CDM) to identify whether they’re capable of capturing the information necessary to successfully operate in a value-based payment system. The CDM is the engine of a revenue cycle, and helping fine-tune and keep it operating at peak performance is our team’s job.

BKD’s team of health care revenue cycle consultants has identified key focus areas for your hospital or health system.
