Hospitals, health systems, and other healthcare facilities today face a much more complex revenue cycle than in the past, so they need to act strategically to make sure they are reaping all the revenue that they rightfully earn while complying with rigorous compliance mandates.
Healthcare organizations must take action to stop revenue loss due to documentation gaps and errors in medical coding and billing that can lead to payer denials, inaccurate reimbursements, and even penalties for overbilling. They also must comply with a host of complex compliance measures that require accurate coding along with developing effective information management for case management and utilization review.
Many healthcare organizations do not have the expertise, capacity, or resources to scale up their coding and health information management to solve all the current and future challenges. They may need to seek an expert partner for help. Loss of revenue, threat of penalties, demands for regulatory compliance, and technology needs of value-based care are too critical to leave at risk.
AMN Healthcare has taken a strategic step forward to solve these complex challenges by offering healthcare organizations the most comprehensive array of quality revenue cycle services though uniting two AMN companies – MedPartners and Peak Health Solutions.
