Realizing the promise of value-based healthcare will require a level of payer and provider collaboration virtually unheard-of in the recent past—and health information professionals play an essential role in achieving this reality.
To achieve success in the new value-based world, both payers and providers must work together to develop the most efficient means of sharing data, managing risk, validating provider credentials, processing claims, controlling costs, and optimizing the consumer experience.
The revenue cycle landscape continues to become more complex with each passing year. Gone are the days when the business office was the leading player in the revenue cycle. Going forward, health information professionals will play an increased role in untangling clinical and financial challenges.
AHIMA20 features a range of sessions aimed at addressing the most significant revenue cycle challenges in healthcare today, including audits, information integration, and the impacts of artificial intelligence and machine learning on business processes.
RCM Education at AHIMA20
- The CMS Quality Payment Program (MACRA) in 2020 and 2021: Presenters at this session will provide an in-depth review of the requirements for the CMS Quality Payment Program (QPP) in the 2020 performance year. They will also review proposed changes for the 2021 performance year, potential audit vulnerabilities, and the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic.
- How AI and ML Can Drive a Touchless Revenue Cycle: Attend this session so you can know where to automate with technology and where to add human touch to your operations. Let the machines do the repetitive drudgery and free up time for humans to do their best work.
- Enterprise Revenue Cycle Management for the HI Professional: As healthcare systems continue to acquire hospitals, ambulatory centers, and professional provider organizations, they also seek to achieve economies of scale by combining like-functions such as revenue cycle operations. Implementation of enterprise practice management systems and health records can be a common catalyst for this organizational change. HIM managers can see this as a challenge or an opportunity.
