In the healthcare sector, where needs and emergencies know no hour, the importance of a medical software partner that mirrors this relentless commitment cannot be overstated. The integration of a robust charge capture and Revenue Cycle Management (RCM) service, especially one that provides 24/7 customer support, plays a pivotal role in maintaining the fluidity and efficiency of the revenue cycle.
Charge capture and RCM are at the heart of a healthcare practice’s financial health. Efficient charge capture ensures that all services rendered are accurately recorded and billed, while effective RCM oversees the entire process from patient intake to final payment. A breakdown in this process can lead to revenue leaks, billing errors, and delayed payments. According to a report by Healthcare Financial Management Association (HFMA), ineffective charge capture can result in a loss of 1% to 5% of a hospital’s total captured charges.
Healthcare doesn’t operate on a 9-to-5 schedule. Practices often encounter billing queries, require charge capture updates, or need to address RCM issues outside regular business hours. Here’s where 24/7 customer support becomes invaluable:
