Organizations need to think of the revenue cycle in healthcare as something beyond numbers and more as everything that occurs from that first initial contact with the physician, through a patient’s hospital stay, all the clinical events that may cause charges to fall, and then the components of getting the documentation in place to be able to verify and prove you did what you said you did. This also includes making sure you’re appropriately reimbursed for the great care you provided your patient. Every step is important, and each step represents a piece that leads to an effective revenue cycle. Successful and profitable healthcare institutions often have a firm grasp on all those individual steps, including visibility into the revenue cycle as a whole.
