As paperless as we strive to be, much of today’s business content still exists in an unstructured format – phone calls, faxes, emails and other paper-intensive work processes. Most billing and accounting solutions simply cannot capture or contain the information that supports complex healthcare financial processes like denial management.
OnBase Revenue Cycle Management (RCM) solutions capture, store, process, integrate and manage exception-based accounts, along with all of the unstructured content that encompasses them. And, with native automation tools, OnBase provides a single, system-wide workflow solution that helps healthcare organizations:
- Improve their days receivable outstanding (DRO) to receive more cash, faster
- Reduce their cost to collect
- Increase account collections and decrease denials
- Unify disparate data into a single platform with one-click access
