With a recession coming, you can’t afford to not know in real time staff effectiveness & net collection rate. Add workflow automation to your PM system. Matt Seefeld explains why.
Weekly thoughts on how to leverage technology in your healthcare organization to reduce labor costs, increase net collection rate, and maximize margin.
Effective Intelligence is all about reducing your dependence on labor in the revenue cycle while ensuring the medical billing and front office staff you do need are working effectively and generating the expected revenue to increase your margin with the least amount of work effort. MedEvolve is an effective intelligence company.
Timely technology, process, & people changes are necessary to maximize net collection rate. Practice management systems are not capable of producing net collection rate in real time, and if you’re not staying above 97% benchmark, you have a problem.
If we can focus on front office pre-registration financial clearance, you will reduce your labor dependence on the back office in medical billing and claims processing.
RPA vs. EiQ: Why Robotic Process Automation can’t replace Effective Intelligence in revenue cycle management
While RPA may be important for the organization, if you don’t know where, and to what extent your revenue cycle staff are putting in their most effort and getting involved, you may be spending a lot of money and IT time doing integrations that won’t yield the results that you expect. With Medevolve Effective Intelligence, we are focused on one thing which is margin.
When I ask clients, “Are all the scheduled visits coming in for Monday cleared based on the six points I just told you?”, the answer is “I think so”, but “I think so” doesn’t work anymore. “I think so” gets you overstaffed. “I think so” gets your net collection rate to be far below benchmark, which is negatively impacting your profit margin.
How does labor staff demands like shortages, high turnover, more salary, better hourly rates, affect your margin? Matt Seefeld shows us how to measure work effort with real-time analytics that show where the breakdowns occur – denials? billing edits? coding?
