6 experts share healthcare RCM predictions for 2017
Becker's Hospital CFO
In 2017, the conversation and forward planning in healthcare RCM will be predominantly around risk- or value-based revenue models. In contrast, revenue will remain mainly fee-for-service-based. Therefore, hospitals and other provider organizations will need to devote a portion of their IT effort to readying their technology infrastructure for a hybrid world. Accurate and timely physician charge capture will remain a priority (albeit more challenging with the expanded ICD-10 code set) and so will charge analytics. Quality reporting will become more complex as the Medicare Access and CHIP Reauthorization Act's Merit-Based Incentive Payment System phases in.
