Health iPASS CEO and Founder Rajesh Voddiraju ADAM Webinar Guest to Discuss Patient Revenue Cycle in Healthcare

Posted by Greg Rakas on Jan 21, 2019 8:21:24 AM

Health iPASS CEO and Co-Founder Rajesh Voddiraju has been a busy man. In addition to overseeing the company, he has appeared as a guest on several media platforms recently. On December 31, Rajesh was a guest on the eHealth Radio Network with Eric Michaels, where he discussed a variety of topics including how the rise of high deductible health plans (HDHP) have led to changes in the revenue cycle, the idea behind the creation of the Health iPASS patient revenue cycle solution, and the future of healthcare.

Earlier in the month of December, Rajesh moderated our most recent Health iPASS webinar, a panel discussion centered on strategies to help medical providers collecct more patient payments in 2019.  Rajesh presided over an impressive panel of healthcare experts that included John Hornberger, CEO of Orthopedic Center of Palm Beach County, Eric Brodsky, Principal at Epoxy and Executive Director of Illinois MGMA, and Joe Clark, CEO of Sierra Pacific Orthopedics. Rajesh moderated the discussion on the future of healthcare and how the “status quo” of paper statements and lack of technology use is a thing of the past. If you missed that webinar, a recording of it is available here.

This week is yet another opportunity to hear Rajesh and learn from his great insights on the future of the patient revenue cycle in healthcare. Tomorrow, January 22nd from 12-1 pm central time, Rajesh will be participating in the Association of Dermatology Administrators and Managers (ADAM) webinar entitled “ Preparing for 2019 and Beyond: Revenue Cycle Regulatory Legislation on the Horizon” will outline and discuss pending legislative framework changes on the horizon that could negatively affect revenue cycles and how providers can manage these changes and abandon the status quo.

With the rise of high deductible health plans (HDHPs), patient as a payer is becoming the new norm. Patients are demanding price transparency so they can clearly understand both before and at the point-of-service how much money they owe after a doctor’s visit. Over the last few years, there have been moves both at the state and federal levels towards establishing greater healthcare price transparency and reducing/eliminating surprise medical bills. In fact, as of June of 2018, 28 states now require hospitals, physicians, and/or healthcare plans to publish per-procedure costs.

With a significant push towards greater price transparency, data-driven healthcare pricing reform and transparency will only accelerate. While this is not a new initiative, the Colorado Transparency in Health Care Prices Act, which went into effect January 1st of 2018, is breaking new ground and may well serve as a model for ongoing efforts to increase healthcare price transparency for patients. As the healthcare industry is confronted with new cost transparency legislation, providers need to adapt.
