Revenue cycle management

The definition of Revenue Cycle Management (RCM) in healthcare is the process of managing your office’s claims processing, payment and revenue generation. The entire healthcare revenue cycle process includes everything from determining patient eligibility, collecting their co-pay, coding claims correctly, tracking claims, collecting payments and following up on denied claims.

Current scenarios in Health Care Revenue Cycle

Unqualified Staff

For successful health care revenue cycle management the staff should understand the coding errors, data quality errors in patient demographics, insurance and claim processing information. A simple failure in daily job or in work flow can affect the revenue.

Lack of Communication

Typically the office will be busy and if all the staff should understand their role in the office.
The communication between the staff should be open and regular review meetings can identify the problems and rectify it.

Standardized workflow

If the system is wrong everything will be wrong. A proper and established workflow can end up with missing steps and forgetting tasks.
It can end up from increased errors and delays to getting paid.

Lack of efficient software

In order to efficiently manage the patient revenue cycle of your office, you’ll need medical billing software or practice management software that allows you to effectively keep track of the claims process.
