Revenue Cycle Assessment

Identify a Road Map to Improved Performance & Increased Organizational Margins

Are you experiencing revenue cycle issues due to a recent system conversion that are affecting financial performance or patient satisfaction? Are your organizational performance indicators below industry standards or lacking altogether? A healthy revenue cycle is critical for organizational success—and in a constantly evolving industry, it’s important to stay at the forefront to enhance reimbursement. Technology conversions, Medicare and Medicaid changes, commercial payor contracting, ambulatory groupings, incentives and risk agreements require health care organizations to keep pace. A revenue cycle assessment is an excellent means to determine strategic direction and develop short, midrange and long-term plans.

Our Health Care Performance Advisory Services (HCPAS) team has a unique blend of industry, consulting and system experience, enabling us to do a deep dive into your revenue cycle operations and uncover ways to help improve your performance. We can assess your overall revenue cycle performance or provide a tailored solution to focus on your organization’s most critical needs in the core areas below:

  • Pre- and post-system implementation
  • Organizational structure
  • Process flow and design
  • Vendor performance
