CEU: 1.0 - Revenue Cycle Management
Optimize Health Care Revenue Cycle Operations with Robotic Process Automation (RPA)

Patricia Bounds

Robotic Process Automation (RPA) has proven to be an important technology for the automation
of manual processes. Organizations that have implemented have reduced costs by 30-70%
depending on processes deployed. According to Becker’s Hospital CFO Report, some organizations
have increased their team capacity from 35 to 200%, so they can focus on higher priority,
problem-solving tasks.

This advanced technology helps hospitals to streamline operations, reduce the time to complete
tasks, improve financial performance, and lower labor costs. It is easily used for common tasks
that can be replicated, like manual data entry, queries, cutting and pasting. Bots can also be trained
to automate more complex tasks including denials management, authorization management, claim
edit resolution, and other processes, including:

  • Gathering information from websites and other applications to integrate information directly
    into the HIS and submit pre-authorizations
  • Correcting eligibility mistakes including Government Managed Care eligibility
  • Responding to payor denials by generating online appeals automatically
  • Automating simple billing edit resolution
