Revenue Cycle Pathfinder

The journey from a patient's first appointment through the collection of the final payment is fraught with a tempest of administrative processes and confusing payer requirements that threaten to toss an AMC's revenue against the rocks. This highly customized engagement provides onsite evaluation of your front-end processes and results in an action plan that maps your path to quick-hit revenue capture tactics.

The result is a custom assessment of incremental revenue opportunities that can have an immediate positive impact on your bottom line.
