The Future-Proof Revenue Cycle
The smoke is finally clearing in healthcare. Uncertainties of the past couple of years—healthcare reform regulations, a languishing economy, and tight credit markets, to name a few—are slowly diminishing. In their place is a sense of optimism that we have weathered the worst. Now it's time to focus on what's ahead.
This sentiment is echoed by Standard and Poor's (S&P) most recent financial analysis of nonprofit healthcare providers. "The economy's gradual recovery and providers' cost containment and significant efforts to improve economies of scale, product and process standardization, and quality of care, have supported their credit quality," the credit rating agency stated in its February 2011 report.
