Integrating Financial Data for a Better Consumer Experience
When: Thursday, February 14, 2019 2:30pm – 3:30pm
Integrating Financial Data for a Better Consumer Experience – In its journey to put patients first, Health First discovered a gap in its efforts to standardize patient financial communications. Lack of consistency, training and buy-in among staff led to issues with both patient experience and upfront collections. Leaders created a plan to hardwire patient financial conversations, teaching staff how to talk to patients about cost. Health First also implemented technology that provides access to patient benefit information and began providing upfront estimates to every patient, regardless of insurance coverage. Patient financial conversations are recorded to reinforce scripting, and daily reports ensure the completion of each step in the process. This session will review the processes, systems and integration points that allow providers to give accurate benefit information, self-pay estimates and payment options at the front end of the revenue cycle. Attendees will consider outcomes in point of service collections and patient experience.
