Conquering Staff Shortages with AI and Automation

Posted by Meduit RCM on Jul 19, 2023 7:00:00 AM

U.S. hospitals and health systems are still struggling with staffing shortages, creating challenges for delivering patient care and negatively impacting the revenue cycle. The staffing crunch means fewer human resources are available to resolve accounts receivable and drive needed revenue. This is where artificial intelligence (AI) solutions can help.

AI tools are ideal for handling repetitive revenue cycle tasks and accelerating account resolution, freeing staff to handle more complex issues.

Meduit’s Supervised Autonomous Revenue Associate (SARA) has successfully worked more than 1.7 million client accounts since her launch. She accomplishes the work of more than 100 full-time employees with no downtime.

By leveraging Meduit’s SARA solution, one health system was able to automate the following tasks:

  • Clearing backlog of 17,000+ undistributed transactions
  • Working 2,000+ claims per month
  • Statusing 250+ authorizations a day

SARA is already working on more than 25% to 40% of accounts for early adopters of this automated technology. If you aren’t deploying AI to achieve these results, it is important to get started today.
