National Rural Health Resource Center (The Center)

Speaker: Cynthia R. DuPree, CPA, FHFMA, CCS, Partner, Draffin & Tucker, LLP

This webinar is focused on the importance of charge capture in the revenue cycle. Cynthia DuPree discusses how oftentimes, non-financial staff does not realize that charges do not "magically" appear on the hospital bill. Human intervention is ALWAYS necessary in order for a charge to be generated. Cynthia also discussed how charges are captured and the role each hospital staff has in this process.
