It’s been an exciting ride over the past 15 years, watching our company evolve and adapt to the ever-changing healthcare landscape. Anyone who has been reading our blogs over the past several years can attest to the knowledge we’ve gained by working alongside healthcare professionals to tackle a variety of modern healthcare business challenges: helping department leaders staff teams with qualified professionals; partnering with IT departments to evaluate their systems and implementation strategies; and working with revenue cycle departments to help identify untapped sources of revenue. It has been a tremendous learning process.
Hayes' Healthcare Blog
By Peter Butler, President and CEO, Hayes Management Consulting
As part of our commitment to helping healthcare organizations optimize their business processes to achieve greater revenue integrity, Hayes has recently formed a Revenue Integrity Advisory Council (RIAC), a small group of revenue cycle and compliance executives who understand the real-world financial challenges associated with running a large, complex organization. We held our first meeting on March 20th in Chicago, where leaders from some of the nation’s most prestigious healthcare organizations gathered for an afternoon to discuss issues, exchange ideas and develop new solutions for overcoming some of their most pressing concerns.
So what was on their minds? Not surprisingly, the topics covered a range of issues including telehealth, quality-based reimbursement, and high-cost drug reimbursement, as well how to organize the coding function and managing compliance issues.
