Use RVUs to analyze your capitated revenue, improve collections in practices with mixed reimbursement

Relative value units (RVU) can be used to do more than measure physician productivity. RVU analysis is also a terrific tool to establish and evaluate fee schedules, determine practice costs, examine reimbursement from payers, and assess staffing levels and salary and incentive programs.

Elliott, MBA, FACMPE, associate professor and vice chair of operations in the Department of Radiology at the Virginia Commonwealth University Health System in Richmond.
