An opportunity too often missed
For many healthcare organizations, the revenue cycle remains an untapped but fertile source of funding for operations. Often, those funds seem unreachable because of the difficulties in prioritizing accounts receivable, collecting in an era of self-pay and new insurances, and, in many cases, the bureaucratic nature of the back office itself. This leaves too many providers opting for the self-defeating solution of cutting valuable, experienced staff instead of optimizing business operations.
Jennifer Swindle, Salud’s Vice President of Quality and Service Excellence, regularly contributes to HFMA’s Revenue Cycle Strategist magazine.

IN BECKER'S HOSPITAL REVIEW
With revenue challenges rising, it's time to focus on the basics
“Even amid a booming economy and near full employment, healthcare providers are facing significant financial headwinds,” Salud CEO Jesse Ford wrote in the Jan. 9, 2018, Becker’s Hospital Review.
Reimbursement cuts, private payers’ increased denials for medical necessity, high out of pocket costs for consumers, the loss of the individual mandate and other changes might call for a whole new approach to revenue cycle management and a huge new investment in technology, but Ford thinks this may be a time for simplicity – a focus on the basics. “That includes old fashioned goals such as ensuring clean bills, avoiding coding errors that might flip responsibility onto patients and working with patients upfront to handle their payment in a patient-friendly manner. Rather than cutting staff through morale-busting layoffs, there is far less pain in finding extra dollars by ensuring payers are following policies and your own claims are accurate,” Ford writes.
