Revenue Cycle Management
RCM, or Revenue Cycle Management, is a popular buzzword these days among doctors and medical office administrators. So what is Revenue Cycle Management, and do you really need it?
In realistic terms, it simply means “How quickly can we get from the doctor saying ‘Goodbye’ to a patient, to payment being received.”
So RCM includes:
- Removing unnecessary steps and delays in the billing cycle
- Preparing the systems, procedures and paperwork ahead of time to support those changes
- Improving the collections procedures in order to accelerate the payment process.
To most healthcare offices, the most important part of Revenue Cycle Management is the practice of collections. Small medical practices seldom have the personnel available to pursue collections. Nor is the aptitude and ideal personality of an excellent administrator or front office staff the same as the aptitude and ideal personality of a great collector.
That is why so many medical offices outsource their RCM Collections efforts to collection agencies, and why Fidelity Creditor Service is your best choice to handle your RCM collections.
