Not just small practices but hospitals in the US are also facing the pressure caused by healthcare reforms. Many hospitals are closing down, merging with bigger hospitals or experiencing major financial problems. It is being expected that 2014 will also bring various challenges for hospitals in the US for which, they will have to be prepared.
Challenges to be faced by hospitals in 2014:
How can hospitals handle these challenges?
With so many challenges, hospitals are finding it difficult to balance between hospital billing, coding, physician training, EHR implementation, HIPAA and so on. These challenges are especially daunting for small rural hospitals that face lack of staff and money.
A large number of hospitals are outsourcing billing and coding tasks in order to ensure efficiency in revenue cycle management. By streamlining, they are not only strengthening cash flow of their hospital but also improving the level of patient satisfaction.
By hiring a billing partner, hospitals are eliminating the headache of balancing patient care and billing amidst lack of skilled staff. Since a billing company will make use of latest technology to handle billing tasks, hospitals won’t have to invest in health IT.
