As high deductible plans have become increasingly widespread, the portion of medical bills that fall under patient responsibility, or patient self-pay, has also increased steadily. Forward-thinking healthcare facilities are reconsidering their revenue cycle processes to better cope with the rising number of patients who are responsible for paying all or a larger share of their medical bills, including how to reach self-pay patients and more effectively resolve balances.
In this e-book, we will share best practices and insights from experts who have successfully overcome the unique challenges of resolving patient self-pay accounts:
Why patient self-pay accounts require a more sophisticated approach
How hospitals can optimize processes within each phase of the revenue cycle
How to implement best practices for resolving self-pay accounts
Defining traits of successful patient self-pay collections and KPI

25 million data breaches reported in just the first half of 2019
Healthcare continues to be a prime target for cybercriminals - patient data is incredibly valuable and therefore healthcare organizations are incredibly vulnerable for targeting. Healthcare organizations need to go beyond just focusing on operating systems and start to include endpoints such as computers, printers, smartphones, and IoT devices in their security plans.

Executive Summary: Discovering the Clinical and Financial Value of Sanitized Devices
February 21, 2020
In the wake of the COVID-19 pandemic, healthcare facilities need to ensure that their sanitation protocols are properly in place.
IT devices are among the leading sanitation risks in any environment, let alone healthcare. Researchers have discovered that computer keyboards alone contained 7,500 bacteria per swab—more than an average toilet seat. Take into account laptops, mobile devices, and monitors and there is a sever risk of unknowingly passing along infectious diseases to staff and patients.
The problem however, is not that the staff are overlooking proper sanitation protocols, it’s that the devices they have access to are simply not designed to be cleaned with effective agents.

With greater emphasis being placed on care transitions and readmission rates, inpatient rehabilitation programs have the incredible potential to become high-performing centers of excellence that optimize the performance of the entire hospital. Rehabilitation is so critical because it is key to patient recovery for medically complex patient populations that continue to grow as the population ages, and essential in reducing readmissions and associated financial penalties.
