There is perhaps no bigger change to healthcare financial management than the shift from fee-for-service to value-based care, and a host of healthcare experts from provider organizations, payers and technology vendors are set to tackle the topic as the Revenue Cycle Solutions Summit kicks off on Tuesday in Boston.
Event highlights include Michael Chernew, the Leonard D. Schaeffer Professor of Health Care Policy at Harvard University, who plans to look at the economics of running a sustainable health system in his keynote address.
Michael Rawdan, system director of revenue cycle and patient experience at St. Luke's Health System, will also give a presentation on how that system has used innovative payment options to improve patient collections. That includes longer payment options that patients can be eligible for to pay off their bills.
Ahead of that, here are a few recent stories we ran featuring speakers planned for the two-day event.
Number one place to focus is on capturing accurate, complete clinical documentation in support of accurate coding, Leigh Williams says.
Texas Health Resources captures each step of the patient encounter, from the physician's electronic order to payers' insurance verification.
Processing payments for both fee-for-service and value-based arrangements presents a new reality that is fraught with issues.
