4 employees; 1 medical provider

 

Situation: When the practice opened in 2012, CMS activated a robust Revenue Cycle Management process, which includes the following ongoing services: staff training on coding, chart audits, provider credentialing, and integration of updates/changes to the EHR system.

Outcome:  The active management and collection of past due accounts, or  Accounts Receivable – by systematically contacting patients and third party payers – resulting in greater profitability, and increased cash flow.  In December, 2014, CMS lead a database migration from a third party provider to a cloud-based service, hosted directly by the EHR, eClinicalWorks.  CMS activated the Patient Portal and implemented efficiencies in office workflow as a result.

The work done by CMS has contributed in a steady increase in practice revenue, and has provided fiscal transparency for the office.
