Revenue Cycle

While healthcare consumers view patient care as the center of healthcare, for healthcare providers, getting paid for their services is equally important. Good Revenue Cycle practices are essential to keeping denials down, to collecting Accounts Receivable in a timely fashion, and, most importantly, improving cash flow. At Onexte, we combine our clinical and technology expertise with a thorough understanding of financial management in the provider setting to help our clients meet their financial goals.

Many of our consultants are former clinicians and physicians, many of whom have also been Chief Operating Ocers, A/R Directors, Billing Managers, or Revenue Cycle Directors. We understand the nuances of dierent clinical care settings, including hospitals, clinics, physician practices, and acute care facilities.

We stand ready to help your organization not only survive but thrive under the ICD paradigm. We have the resources who understand how to help you deal with one of the most significant changes to healthcare in decades. Perhaps most important of all, we understand the symbiotic relationship between coding and the entire revenue cycle, so we can optimize both at the same time.

According to studies, the advent of ICD-10 means that the productivity of medical coders falls by a full fifty percent during conversion. This almost certainly means adding to your staff, at least on a temporary basis. We can provide experienced coding personnel who can either get you over the hump or provide long-term services. We also incorporate the new coding into a fully optimized revenue cycle to help assure maximum efficiency and peak performance.
