Two healthcare reimbursement themes have taken center stage for 2017 — “pay for performance” and “proof of revenue integrity.” These interconnected clinical and financial requirements highlight the need for compliant processes that support collaboration of all hospital staff members. And, while the regulatory guidance is generally well-known, the structural and operational “how-to’s” for achieving clinical and financial joint performance outcomes are proving more difficult to define and implement. This missing structure for optimizing the new payment methodologies brings about a need for understanding and developing compliant “change management” strategies. Even though healthcare is experiencing its fifth year of value-based payment, many providers are still attempting to capture optimum cash utilizing outdated patient care management, charge capture, coding and billing processes and evaluation through misaligned performance metrics. This session will present practical and proven best practice revenue cycle leadership job roles and team member operational work flows to meet the challenges of 2017 compliant reimbursement.
