Product Description

Get a Closer Look into an Effective Appeal Process, Micro-Level Management & Common Compliance Issues with Barbara Coubuzzi

Revenue cycle management (RCM) is the process that manages claims processing, payment and revenue generation. However, it’s not as simple as it sounds —there are many bumps in the road for the healthcare provider to encounter when it comes to collection. You need to stay on top of private payer rules through an organized process of information gathering, billing and address any issues, allowing for a steady stream of revenue. The process includes keeping track of claims in the system, making sure payments are collected and addressing denied claims, which can cause up to 90 percent of missed revenue opportunity.
