Strong revenue cycles have a strong HIM in today’s evolving electronic health record era, and an increasingly remote workforce is critical to the health of any health system. The ability to convert paper to electronic data, assess clinical documentation completeness, and communicate with providers is a must for a viable revenue cycle. 

Document imaging operations, regulatory adherence, and optimizing communication between providers and revenue cycle stakeholders are critical.

Hospitals and health systems can greatly improve communication throughout the revenue cycle by investing in health information management departments.

  • Leveraging the knowledge of documentation movement throughout the RCM spectrum from MPI management on the front end to payer documentation requests on the back end
  • Utilizing the value of HIM presence to improve provider communication with coding and clinical documentation improvement
  • Implement provider performance monitoring and follow-up to promote accountability for completing documentation on time every time
