Providers are facing one of the worst economic crises of modern times. To breakdown the walls between care quality and healthcare payments, more providers have set their sights on implementing RCM partnerships with solutions that can manage the integration of reimbursement and value.
More healthcare organizations are seeking outsourced RCM services to support a range of payment models. The push for RCM outsourcing is primarily being driven by declining claims reimbursement rates and the value-based care transition.
Outsourcing can help to identify and implement improvements for better revenue capture and collections. Outsourcing has freed up HR resources to focus on recruiting medical assistants, nurses, physicians, and other staff to help with running the clinics, and generating revenue, rather than coders and medical billers to fill gaps on the billing side.

Barriers to success:
1. Fear of being rejected – have confidence in your services and expertise. Product and industry knowledge builds confidence.
2. Poor communication – 80% of the sale is listening. Listening connects salespeople with customers and helps build a longer lasting relationship. Ask open-ended questions then sit back and listen.
3. Lack of content and/or social media marketing – 90% of marketers state that social media has increased exposure of their business. It establishes credibility.
4. Never allow failure to enter your vocabulary.
5. Planning and preparation – always research your prospect prior to the sales call. Know who you are selling to.
6. Lack of motivation and discipline – set clear and specific goals, create a routine, seek support from others, and break tasks into smaller, manageable steps. Having a mentor or coach can be incredibly beneficial, providing guidance, sharing experiences and insights, creating action plans, and set specific goals.
No one creates success alone. Steve Jobs said, “Great things in business are never done by one person, they’re done by a team of people”. A positive, united team is a powerful team. Surround yourself with talented people that bring value to your company’s proposition and mission.
