Healthcare Revenue Cycle Management (RCM), a financial process utilizing the power of medical billing softwares in order to keep a track of patients. It starts right from their registration and ends when their final bill is paid.

The Healthcare RCM Process is a complicated cycle, it follows an order and it flows in the way as mentioned below:

  • Registration
  • Financial Counseling
  • Charge Capture
  • Utilization Review
  • Medical Record Documentation
  • Claims Submission
  • Third Party Follow-up
  • Rejection Processing
  • Payment Posting
  • Appeals
  • Contract Management

These are the processes included as a part of Healthcare Revenue Cycle Management Services. They differ in their features based on the type of software that the Hospital or Clinic is using. The Healthcare Revenue Cycle Services being provided are required to be free of any errors -- the reason being that if there's an error present, the revenue recovery just becomes more costly the more and more further the error travels.

There are many Healthcare Revenue Cycle Management Companies that have grown along with the times and have adapted to the needs of the Healthcare payers and providers. These are the organizations that not only provide Healthcare Revenue Cycle Software but also Healthcare RCM Solutions.
