Adept’s Revenue Cycle thought leaders are knowledge experts in claim, reimbursement, coding, patient access, as well as, patient billing. We know various ‘Best Practices,’ the intricacies of the billing life cycle and data analytics to measure and validate risk reimbursement. Our consultants are former Revenue Cycle Leaders who have worked in a myriad of organizations, worked with the majority of systems in the market and are experts at integration.
Challenges in Revenue Cycle derive in multiple areas and levels. Many healthcare systems have multiple registration and billing systems with varying workflows. These organizations normally use different models of care at different facilities (normally aligned to these various systems), manual steps in the life cycle, and normalization of data to forecast revenue and reimbursement accurately. Adept is familiar with these steps and how to align using advanced data & simulation models, as well as, knowledge and expertise in performance excellence. These and many other challenges create gaps, reporting variances and abnormalities, not to mention labor intensive procedures and an inability to track and measure reimbursement risk. With the migration to value or performance based payment models, Adept can help you to achieve efficiency and improve your reimbursement goals now and going forward.
