Wixom, MI – Recently, Casey Williams, Vice President of Direct Healthcare Sales at RevSpring, presented two educational seminars on the impact revenue cycle interactions can have on the patient experience.
As healthcare systems strategize upgrades to their RCM processes in 2014, it is clear that they will have to account for the effects, positive or negative, of new technologies and solutions on the patient experience – especially as patient satisfaction becomes a key element of government reimbursement formulas.
“Today, patients have more healthcare options and higher expectations from their provider,” said Williams. “Health systems tend to overlook the opportunity they have to influence patient perceptions within their revenue cycle interactions. From scheduling and registration, to billing and follow-up, organizations that look to enhance the patient experience will have a significant competitive advantage in the marketplace.”
Williams’s presentation, titled “The Patient Experience, Your Revenue Cycle, and Loving What You Do” sheds light on specific revenue cycle processes that can affect a patient’s overall healthcare experience and the financial implications to the health system. The presentation was given at educational events sponsored by Region 2 of the Healthcare Financial Management Association (HFMA) and the Medical Resources Group.
“Casey brought awareness to a topic that has been lurking just beneath the surface,” said Trae Christian, of the Medical Resources Group and account executive at Frost-Arnett. “I was told by several attendees how much they enjoyed the presentation and how pertinent the information was.”
