Hospitals are Reprioritizing Revenue Cycle Management Upgrades Above Other Initiatives

Posted by David Fong on Dec 27, 2017 8:00:00 AM

Almost three-quarters of struggling hospitals are re-prioritizing revenue cycle management over a number of other initiatives. A recent Black Book Market Research survey uncovered that hospitals leaders are pushing revenue cycle management to the top of their priority lists in this last quarter of 2017. The Black Book Research indicated that 74 percent of struggling hospitals are putting population health, analytics, physician practice acquisitions and recruitment, and patient engagement on the back burner to reprioritize revenue cycle management through Q4 2017.


The survey of over 6,000 financial and business operations leaders at health systems, as well as more than 5,600 physician practice and other care site leaders, also showed that profitable hospitals are focusing on revenue cycle management as 2017 ends. Ninety-four percent of financial leaders in hospitals performing at viable margins report successful revenue cycle management transformations and have plans to upgrade to tools such as RCM dashboards, analytics and upgraded business intelligence solutions.

We can help you find problems before they become a challenge for your organization. Even the best of employees can make mistakes that can impede your cash flow.

Our Coding Denial Management Services provide a cost-effective pre-claim review solution to ensure that appropriate payment is received for services provided.

Most administrative staffs are ill-equipped or lack the time to tackle this monumental task.


Aviacode’s Coding Denial Management team is committed to improving your coding-related denial management process so you can free up cash and increase revenues. Our denial management process uses a highly effective workflow and process which includes top certified coding professionals. Outsourcing your coding denial management to Aviacode will help you increase income, reduce lost reimbursements, and minimize coding and documentation issues.
