Minimize RAC Takeback
The best defense against RAC is effective auditing and monitoring—be it through an in-house team and a spreadsheet or advanced RAC auditing software. The question isn't whether a facility should be prepared, but what approach to take and how much money to invest in staff, technology, training, and possibly financial reserves to protect against potential losses. Although auditing programs are in place at most hospitals, it's essential that existing technology be adjusted to track RAC.
