As more organizations scramble to implement vital Clinically-Driven Revenue Cycle (CDRC) systems, the competition for experienced help in implementing programs promises to intensify. This can leave your organization with less experienced resources—whether internal or vendor-supplied—as you look to address a major initiative with millions at-stake.
Getting a handle on the cost-overruns, duplication, and inefficiencies of even a modest-sized healthcare organization is impossible without a deep understanding of the myriad transactions, interactions, and actions that lie untapped within the data of your HIT solutions.
Armed with in-depth, “under-the-hood” experience with Cerner Patient Accounting, Cerner Millennium, and most popular HIT and accounting solutions, our team understands the complex intersections that can confound the smooth journey from service provision to billing and payment. We help align both your IT systems—and your workflows—to give you the best possible chances of success.
Engaging an objective and scalable outside team can help provide flexible assistance and perspective to your in-house team—and serve as a check on your vendor’s performance as well. Having helped guide (or rescue) several major Cerner installations in recent years—from critical access hospitals to multi-facility academic health systems—the S&P team stands ready to deliver proven CDRC outcomes.
All of us at S&P Consultants continue to offer our thoughts and sincere thanks to our clients, colleagues, employees, and friends who are on the frontlines in helping our country navigate this unprecedented crisis. Right now, supporting the clinicians and staff who are providing care is—and should be—everyone’s number-one priority. For revenue cycle managers, that means continuing to process claims cleanly and correctly—even with new coding and volumes—in order to maintain a financial foundation that allows hospitals and networks to stay healthy as vital public resources and major employers.
