Healthcare providers are losing significant revenue annually due to several reasons such as inaccurate coding, insufficient documentation, billing and collections mistakes, failure to monitor the medical claims process from beginning to end and not staying updated with industry changes. The optimization of the medical billing process is thus essential to ensure long-term, sustained operations for healthcare providers to maximize reimbursement, increase accuracy, and avoid audits. From streamlining the collections process to eliminating reimbursement denials, all while satisfying HIPAA requirements, adds a lot of complexity to medical billing.
