After converting to a new hospital information system and purchasing several physician practice groups, hospital administrators were looking for a way to manage self-pay balances more effectively since many of the same patients were being contacted by the hospital and physician organizations.
The hospital partnered with Meduit to utilize extended business office solutions for drafting and executing a tactical strategy to work their self-pay accounts. By working as an extension of the hospital’s business, the Meduit team increased the hospital’s cash by 27% in the first 90 days.
