Revenue Cycle and Physician Practice Management (RCM/PPM)
The purpose of the Revenue Cycle Management (RCM) and Physician Practice Management (PPM) assessments are to help participating hospital/clinic leadership teams with improving their Revenue Cycle and Physician Practice Management processes.
Some key strategic and environmental considerations underlying both analysis areas include:
- Hospital financial challenges attributable to low inpatient (IP) admissions
- Limited primary care alignment in local market
- Implementation of a new electronic medical record (EMR) system
- 340B Drug Program, Home Health, and Swing Bed Operations
The attachments will provide a thorough overview of the RCM/PPM assessment process and anticipated time commitment for participating hospitals and clinics. All facilities will be reassessed in year 3 to evaluate successes and ongoing performance improvement opportunities.
