Does day-to-day management leave you with little time to optimize your patient access operations?
The patient registration process is critical to initiating a cycle of quality patient care. Errors made at this important service entry point can have a negative impact, creating breakdowns in care and treatment causing claims rework, patient dissatisfaction and payment reduction, delay or denial.
Patient access leaders are often faced with:
Decentralized registration areas
High turnover rates
New hires just entering the healthcare field
Limited time and resources to train new staff
Lack of consistency in the training process
Difficulty in assessing new hire competency
