Health iPASS Hosting a Patient Revenue Cycle State of the Union Panel Webinar Tomorrow, 12/13!

Posted by Rajesh Voddiraju on Dec 12, 2018 7:51:47 AM

2018 proved to be yet another challenging year for medical providers tackling the growing risk of collecting patient payments. The surge in high deductible health plans and the sharp rise in patient out-of-pocket expenses for the cost of care over the past 5 - 6 years is catching up with practices who have maintained patient revenue cycle status quo and not proactively implemented technological solutions that drive automation and streamline workflow to more effectively collect a larger percentage of what patients owe.

Join us tomorrow for a panel discussion webinar as we look back at some of the most important events of the past year that impacted the patient revenue cycle, discuss the current barriers that exist to guaranteeing patient payments, and forecast what may lie ahead in 2019 that could further impact the ability of medical providers to improve patient collections (*hint - it's not continuing to do business as usual).

We have assembled a smart panel of medical practice CEOs and are pleased to welcome the Executive Director of Illinois MGMA to share their insight, real world experience, and prognostications of what the future may hold. The webinar will be moderated by Health iPASS CEO Rajesh Voddiraju.

There are still spots open for tomorrow's panel discussion webinar on strategies to improve patient payments in healthcare, we encourage you to sign up and sit in to learn and ask questions. We will be recording the session and distributing it to anyone who signs up to attend. Please share with a friend or colleague who you feel could benefit!

We hope to see you tomorrow for the webinar!

Optimize Patient Payments and Join the 97% Residual Balance Collection Club With Health iPASS!

Posted by Rajesh Voddiraju on Sep 26, 2018 3:00:00 AM

In terms of business finance, there are few things as frustrating as bad debt. The product has been delivered, or the service rendered, but when it comes time for payment, nothing. Recent studies have shown that medical practices accumulate roughly $66 billion in bad debt per year, and this statistic only grows over time as patients bear a larger burden of their healthcare costs due to the prevalence of high-deductible healthcare plans. When factoring in poor patient net collections and aged A/R, the big picture is bleak-- depicting a healthcare industry that is hemorrhaging money, forcing small to mid-sized practices to close their doors forever. What can providers do to staunch the flow of uncollected revenue and start putting money back in their pockets, where it belongs?

Introducing the Health iPASS Cash Flow Calculator: Our New Revenue Cycle Tool Evaluates Your Performance Against Industry Benchmarks

Posted by Rajesh Voddiraju on Jul 24, 2018 8:00:31 AM

The world of finance has always been a constant exercise in assessing performance and then comparing that performance to a standard, or benchmark. The healthcare industry is particularly acute at paying attention to benchmarks since many areas of performance are tied into meeting or exceeding standards in order to receive compensation, recognition, or to qualify for incentives and discounts.

Rhode Island Latest State to Enact Healthcare Price Transparency Legislation

Posted by Rajesh Voddiraju on Jun 11, 2018 12:53:25 PM

The idea seemed simple. Create a medical insurance group and establish a network of care rendered by  doctors and other professionals who have agreed by contract to treat patients in accordance with the medical insurance group's guidelines and fee schedules. Stay inside the network and associated medical fees are covered. Go outside the network and risk facing pricey medical bills that the insurance company won't cover.  Simple in concept yes, but as managed care evolved in the U.S. and cost containment initiatives became more complicated to administer, many doctors and providers began to drop from managed care networks in favor of more lucrative payer models, but this created even more reimbursement complexities and confusion.

Why Current Revenue Cycle Tools are Insufficient to Address Patient as a Payer

Posted by Rajesh Voddiraju on Mar 10, 2018 11:48:10 AM

One of the most important aspects of a successful healthcare organization is effective revenue cycle management. Although in the past, patient accounts were managed primarily by bulky paper files, the 2009 HITECH ACT now mandates they are stored electronically.  Electronic health record systems can make the work of billing and payment more efficient, but many are not set up to fit the new dynamic in health care-- addressing the patient as a payer. Therefore, these revenue cycle systems can still fall short in making sure patients are both empowered and informed about the cost of care, limiting their ability to become smarter healthcare consumers.
