Standard Consumer Scoring Tools Don’t Fit Patients
December 9, 2022
There’s no such thing as a ‘one-size-fits-all’ patient engagement strategy. Healthcare executives should beware—using conventional scoring tools to predict how patients will engage with and pay their healthcare bills is not an effective strategy.
More patients are displaying consumer behaviors in how they seek, access, and pay for healthcare. However, paying for healthcare is fundamentally different than purchasing other high-ticket consumer goods.
In this white paper, we’ll explore how using a healthcare-based propensity scoring model can better predict how patients will engage with and pay their healthcare bills.

Maximize Self-Pay Revenue with Better Coverage Detection
December 9, 2022
Over the last few years, an estimated 48 million people1 in the U.S. (under the age of 65) have lost their jobs. This spike in unemployment caused many people to lose employer-provided health insurance as well.
About 20% were insured through their employer and more than 30% had coverage through Medicaid, CHIP, or another family member’s job.
While millions of these individuals and families are expected to remain uninsured, many will enroll in ACA, secure coverage through a new employer, or become eligible for Medicaid or other public programs.
What can providers do?

Workforce Well-being: Digital Innovations for Improving the Life of a Healthcare Worker

Although the pandemic has prompted many healthcare organizations to acknowledge the essential role that their workforce has in providing high-quality and safe care, efforts to promote physician well-being are often still too inadequate.
The physician burnout level and other measures of physician distress have increased dramatically over the last few years, as a recent research article has found that in 2021, 62.8% of physicians reported at least one symptom of burnout, up from just 38.2% in 2020.
In addition, workforce shortages in the healthcare industry aren’t limited to clinical care. A recent survey found that more than a third of health system leaders are worried about how to staff and maintain their IT departments while simultaneously expanding their digital health strategy.
In downloading this eBook, learn more about key findings and decision-making strategies healthcare leaders are implementing to further boost their organization’s overall workforce well-being.
In this free whitepaper, learn how the nurse shortage is sparking rethinking, retooling, and new staffing models at community hospitals. Learn how innovations at acute care hospitals can be put in place to address staffing issues while managing labor costs and maintaining patient care standards. Knowing the shortage of nurses won’t end soon, hospitals have been working on strategies to alleviate ongoing staffing challenges.
The pandemic accelerated their efforts. Hospitals have cross-trained, repurposed, and upskilled existing staff, and set aside siloed views of responsibility. They have also explored different staffing models. The severe clinician shortage is just one of many challenges community hospitals can expect to face for the foreseeable future, and the pandemic reinforced the need to prepare for the unexpected, as well.
