IDENTIFY PROBLEM AREAS WITHIN DENIALS
The ability to track denials is the most critical component of an effective RCM operation. By tracking and reconciling denials from all types of payers and the most common errors associated, your organization can improve your first submission acceptance and reduce write-offs caused by timely filing. Typically denials are caused by lack of supporting documentation, erroneous services or equipment being coded, or omission of credentialing.
RPA eliminates denials and addresses the additional RCM challenges below:
Inputting, processing and adjusting claims is a time consuming task that is extremely prone to human error which is typically the cause of initial claim denials. RPA navigates clinical and financial systems and repeats the searches and clicks just like a human. This requires no enhancement requests or development from the hospital/clinic/software vendor.
RPA eliminates clinical document deficiencies by re-pulling charts multiple times when missing data with no intervention from a human, saving time and costs. Frequent data collection ensures you have current and accurate information.
