In a previous post, we discussed how workflow automation is at the core of creating a more efficient revenue cycle management (RCM) process. At pMD, we've experienced first-hand the transformative power of automation in RCM. By leveraging workflow automation and artificial intelligence (AI), we made significant strides in boosting efficiency and financial gains for both ourselves and our customers.
Initially, like many other RCM companies, we were reliant on manual processes in various parts of the revenue cycle. Tasks such as collecting patient demographics, insurance eligibility checks, and claim submissions involved hours of manual work. While our team was committed and diligent, the time-intensive nature and the risk of human errors posed a challenge.
Recognizing these hurdles, we identified areas within our revenue cycle where pMD employees and customers were spending hours of manual labor, and where automation could be applied for maximum impact. Key areas included patient demographics collection, eligibility verification, and patient billing:
The move to automation has significantly transformed our RCM services, leading to efficiency gains and cost savings for our customers. We have seen a noticeable reduction in manual tasks, lessened chances of errors, and a more streamlined revenue cycle. The changes have not just enhanced our internal operations but also enabled us to provide better service to patients of our customers.
At pMD®, our mission is to streamline and optimize the patient care episode and the revenue cycle. Through our advanced, end-to-end practice management and revenue cycle solutions, we can help practices consolidate vendors, reduce costs, streamline workflows, improve patient care and satisfaction, and collect their maximum reimbursement more quickly.
