Finding the Right RCM Partner
Practices need to take a closer look at KPIs— from clean claim rates to collections per visit, know how KPIs are trending and how a practice could boost clinical and business performance.
Working with an RCM partner like Ventra Health can improve financial performance and patient satisfaction scores, while extending performance of practice staff.
Practices seek partners like Ventra Health when they experience revenue declines driven by changing payer rules or challenges in contracting and credentialing. The solution rests in having a clinical and business vision for the practice while optimizing billing and coding.
Practices who hire coders and billers must keep up with training and the latest coding changes as well as securing payment on claims.
Your RCM partner should know the specialty of Emergency and Hospital Medicine, your electronic health record (EHR) system, and new and emerging technologies that could boost practice performance.
Ventra Health can ensure that you bill every day to avoid aged accounts receivables.
Physicians should look at Ventra Health as an extension of the practice, not as a separate entity. Make sure your RCM partner is available for troubleshooting, support, and regular meetings.
While cost is a factor in finding and engaging an RCM partner, look for an ability to gather data, share insights, and engage with third parties.
