Optimizing the Human-Technology Interface for RCM Improvement

In the healthcare industry, the RCM team is constantly on the search for ways to make their organization’s revenue cycle more efficient and cost effective. This hunt often leads down the route of investing in technology.

The success of a healthcare revenue cycle is contingent on the implementation of a simple yet fundamental process, education. Education cannot simply stop at the initial training phase of deployment; education is an ongoing and iterative process. The key moments of educational need (new, apply, more, change, solve) is a strategic framework that focuses on the knowledge lifecycle. This session will discuss the strategic educational framework and the cultural change that must occur to implement this framework within your organization’s healthcare revenue cycle.

Learning Objectives:
