Despite many years of revenue cycle management activities, healthcare providers continue to struggle to preserve consistent positive results. Day-to-day revenue cycle processes are critical to a hospital’s strategic effort to obtain accurate reimbursement and manage cash flow. It is difficult to find extra hours to address problems and situations that may arise without a practical plan that has the greatest impact on the bottom line and the integrity of what is reported to external agencies.
The Mississippi Hospital Association is hosting a two-day workshop, Taking Charge of the Revenue Cycle, on Sept. 25-26 at the MHA Conference Center in Madison. The program is designed to focus on the processes and practices that address the touch points of the revenue cycle with the greatest opportunity for improvement, to look at the real importance of accurate documentation, to understand the effects of placing the emphasis on “upstream” versus “downstream” activities, to key claims submissions and recovery strategies, and to understand what value based purchasing really means to the organization.
