Wixom, MI – Casey Williams, Vice President of Direct Healthcare Sales at RevSpring, will outline critical steps for healthcare professionals to optimize patient engagement and increase overall collection results at next week’s Connecticut HFMA educational conference.
According to the American Hospital Association’s Hospital Statistics Guide, with data from fiscal 2012, more hospitals are seeing increases in bad debt as a result of more high-deductible health plans. To respond to this trend, hospital revenue cycle professionals must have integrated strategies designed to ensure a clear and measurable patient engagement strategy, especially for their self-pay population.
Williams’s presentation will share RCM process improvements, and patient engagement best practices healthcare organizations can begin implementing. More specifically, it highlights how providers can start timing and tailoring all revenue cycle messages to a patient’s situation, to yield stronger financial performance. The program is designed to bring awareness to the financial impact of the patient experience and help revenue cycle professionals understand and embrace the competitive advantage of an enhanced patient experience
