On-Demand Webinar: Stop Hospital Revenue Leakage: Identify & Strategize

July 21, 2017
Forces of reform have converged on the US healthcare delivery system.  According to AHRQ, providers are being asked to respond to government’s plans for “the creation of a value-based healthcare purchasing system that promotes and rewards quality and efficiency and reduces costs.” Yet, payment reform can be uneven and inconsistent, especially considering today’s political climate. In the meantime, hospital and health system’s revenue cycle operations are falling victim to insidious—sometimes hidden—revenue leakage that imperils cash flow and productivity.

Join David Hammer and ZirMed for Stop Hospital Revenue Leakage: Identify & Strategize. In this presentation we will discuss the various causes of revenue leakage for hospitals and health systems and how they tighten the squeeze on already-compressed reimbursement margins. We will also discuss how providers can address these challenges using root-cause analysis and prioritization of actions to drive change across the three key revenue cycle areas:

  • Upstream – Financial Clearance and Credentialing
  • Midstream – Revenue Integrity and Coding
  • Downstream – Financial Settlement
