Sharpening The Focus On Revenue Cycle Payment Clarity

Sharpening the Focus on Revenue Cycle Payment Clarity

  • April 13, 2015

Heard about "patient payment clarity" yet? If not, you will soon. This new concept is winning fans at forward-thinking hospitals and raising eyebrows with revenue cycle executives as they learn about the term. For hospitals, patient payment clarity is getting visibility into when and how much they will be paid, by whom and the ability to better navigate the obstacles to payment. For patients, payment clarity goes beyond transparency to promote satisfaction and instill loyalty. To help providers understand and capitalize on this trend, we've put together a fast-reading white paper that explains what patient payment clarity is, why it matters, and how it helps…

HHS wants 30% of payments to be tied to quality or value by 2016, increasing to 50% by 2018. Is your organization ready? If not, what do you have to do to get ready? And where can you turn for resources that will help you make the transition from volume to value? We've answered those questions…

Can Utilization Management Work In A Value-Based World?

Can Utilization Management Work in a Value-Based World?

  • August 5, 2014

Beauty is in the eye of the beholder. And solutions to healthcare’s problems are in the eye of the stakeholder. Payers see the world one way, providers another, and patients still another. Finding solutions that balance stakeholders’ concerns isn’t easy. But it’s not impossible, if you bring the varying points of view together. I've been privileged to work with all stakeholders—payers, providers, and patients—and have heard (and hear) their problems, anxieties, and concerns. It’s from this vantage point that I've been wrestling with the problem of utilization management in a world that’s moving rapidly to value-based models. Today, prior authorization…

McKesson Research Reveals the State of Healthcare’s Transformation from Volume to Value

  • June 11, 2014

Healthcare is moving rapidly to incorporate measures of value into payment models, with more than two-thirds of payments expected to be based on value measurement in five years, up from just one third today.

How We Can Make Healthcare Payment And Delivery Reform Work

How We Can Make Healthcare Payment and Delivery Reform Work

  • February 27, 2014

DOWNLOAD and share the WHITE PAPER now The current array of healthcare reforms hasn't produced a single reimbursement model that can replace our reliance on a fee-for-service (FFS) foundation, nor has it accounted for the seismic shift in care delivery that providers must make. We need a definitive transition from the current FFS system to one that will drive value through mixed reimbursement schemes, which themselves support multiple forms of payment bundling in conjunction with limited FFS. In this new white paper, How We Can Make Payment and Delivery Reform Work, Dr. David Nace, VP and medical director at McKesson Health Solutions, defines the five critical elements of successful care delivery reform that payers and…
