Many hospitals, physician practices and other provider organizations are already seeing an increase in their bad debt as the current credit and mortgage crisis is causing patients to pay healthcare bills more slowly, if at all.

During Improving Patient Collections in an Unhealthy Economy: Technologies and Processes to Speed Payments, a 90-minute webinar on January 28, 2009, industry experts from Beacon Partners will provide practical strategies, techniques and tools to improve patient collections without alienating patients.

Listen to pre-conference comments from Ben Tobin.

Within the context of the current economic environment, coupled with the increase of high-deductible health plans, many healthcare organizations are seeing a lag in patient payments. From an assessment of current processes to how operational issues and technology can improve the revenue cycle, get the details you need from these leading Beacon Partner experts: Greg Adams, senior consultant; Kevin Burchill, practice director; Sean McDonagh, practice director; Ben Tobin, management consultant and Phil Villacci, principal. They'll provide practical, hands-on advice on:

  • The percentage of hospitals making or considering revenue collection changes to weather the economic storm;
  • The impact of the shift from inpatient to outpatient services;
  • Addressing delayed reimbursement due to registration errors;
  • Managing the patient revenue cycle, while preserving positive relationships;
  • Analyzing the areas that directly and indirectly impact the billing and collections process;
  • Understanding all technology impacting the revenue cycle;
  • Implementing technology and modeling tools that improve collection rates;
  • Putting policies and procedures in place that maximize patient collections from pre- to post-visit; and
  • Determining if online access to patient billing will produce a return for your organization and if so, creating and managing a system that nets results.
