Patients & Administrators Want More Self-Service Technologies
A recent study from Eliciting Insights highlighted the substantial opportunities for patient access and revenue management technology. Key findings from the study include:
Patient Access functions remain highly manual: more than half of all Patient Access functions are highly manual and more than 30% of health systems rely completely on manual processes
Health systems are taking a serious look at adding Patient Access technology: over half of the health systems surveyed do not offer a Patient Financial Engagement Platform, Kiosk, or Patient Self-Serve Scheduling.
The difficult challenge of segmenting self-pay accounts into the workflow (eligibility, charity, or bad debt): The sooner administrators and revenue cycle managers can identify and allocate patients to the appropriate workflow, the better off the health system is financially.
