Meaningful Use and health reform are rapidly shifting the industry from payment based on volume and intensity of service to a model that ties payment to high quality and tightly coordinated care. Examples on the near horizon are Medicare value-based purchasing, hospital readmission and hospital acquired condition penalties. As payment becomes more correlated with performance spawning new delivery models (ACO, PCMH) revenue cycle systems need to be more fully integrated with clinical systems and reevaluated in terms of functioning in this new paradigm.
Avery Partners Healthcare services in this area include assessment of patient access, patient logistics and flow, charge capture, HIM, billing, follow up and receivables, payor and system integration. Subject Matter Experts (SMEs) are provided for revenue cycle system Project Management and implementation roles.
The Revenue Cycle services provide support for the complete revenue cycle with engagement duration from 6 weeks to 18 months.
