SUMMARY

An optimized front-end revenue cycle improves provider financial performance by supporting patient cost transparency and accurate pre-appointment documentation which decreases risk of patient bad debt and claim denials. 

This webinar will cover how leveraging process best practices within the “pre-service” stage of the revenue cycle can help support the prevention of costly downstream reimbursement issues. Hear first-hand from Northwell Health how streamlining fragmented front-end activities has helped improve patient access.

  • Understand why it’s important to provide patient access staff with appropriate training and resources in having financial conversations with patients  
  • Determine how providers can create a better financial experience for consumers, to better understand patient out-of-pocket financial obligations
