2:30 – 3:30 Improving Revenue Cycle Outcomes: Harnessing the Power of Process Analytics and Automated Workflow Marquis Salon 2
Sara Emery and Kimberly Scaccia
Taking data and learning what's next! Here's an opportunity to hear about automated business process modeling: Not just solving a single problem, but knowing how to effectuate long term change within the revenue cycle.
Recently organizations have turned their attention toward improving revenue cycle processes and activities in an effort to increase efficiency, reduce costs and – ultimately – shore-up sagging margins. While some improvements have been made industry-wide, few organizations have taken full advantage of the opportunities to achieve significant results from their efforts.
By incorporating business process management (BPM) and a process analytics approach, organizations can start to understand not only where the anomalies are in their processes, but also identify the root causes of those anomalies. Knowing your organization has a problem is great; but knowing how to resolve that problem and reduce process cycle time is best. With automated BPM, it’s not just about solving a single problem, but rather seeing how the problem manifests and interrelates across the entire revenue cycle ecosystem which, in turn, can lead to opportunities to drastically reduce local optimization within the revenue cycle.
3:30 – 3:45 Break & time to visit the Vendor Booths Marquis Salon 1 3:45 – 5:00 Shifting the Paradigm from Patient to Customer with a Consumer-Centric Revenue Cycle Marquis Salon 2
With healthcare costs on the rise and an increase in premiums, deductibles, co-insurance and copayments, patients are beginning to “shop around” for the most affordable pricing for healthcare. Increased patient expectations for customer service, technology, and convenience are driving healthcare systems to re-design their service delivery to meet modern consumer demands. This presentation will provide an overview of current market trends driving the rise in consumer, and key strategies employed by healthcare organizations around the country to ensure patient and customer satisfaction.
