A new level of financial performance
Emergency medical service professionals are dedicated to providing pre-hospital acute medical care. Whether treating those in need of urgent care en route to a hospital or arranging for timely transport for patients to the next point of care, EMS professionals’ goals are to effectively and efficiently treat patients.
As the industry becomes more competitive and costs increase, the need to streamline activities and maximize revenue is paramount to protecting profitability. EMS companies need to successfully coordinate care, manage resources, and implement evidence-based guidelines, all while improving patient experience.
Too often, EMS companies strain their existing billing processes and lose dollars through gaps at every step along the way.
Moving from "billing" to comprehensive EMS revenue cycle management
In contrast to the traditional billing operations that once powered EMS, comprehensive revenue cycle management (RCM) solutions help mitigate the common gaps that contribute to revenue loss throughout the transport billing process – from dispatch to discharge. By introducing the following technology-enabled best practices – leveraging the RCM model – EMS organizations can optimize quality of care and maximize revenue.
