Misconceptions persist among hospitals and health systems that denied and rejected claims are an unavoidable reality of providing healthcare. This belief leads to resource-intensive processes and avoidable revenue loss with little payoff. Not only that, patients are the most impacted by denied prior authorizations and claims denials.
In a recent HealthLeaders webinar, Laura McIntire-Hansel, RN, director of revenue cycle development for Cardinal Health, shared a comprehensive model that decreases rejected and denied claims, identifies savings opportunities, and minimizes facility time spent on claims resolution.

Effective communication requires effective teams and technology, and according to their patients, some healthcare providers know this better than others. Well-informed patients are essential for delivering not only the highest quality of care, but also the smoothest possible billing experience. A provider's communication and billing strategy has a direct link to patient satisfaction, loyalty, and revenue cycle management.
The percentage of patients who reported that a text message reminder would prompt faster bill pay skyrocketed from 34% in 2022 to 41% in 2023.
The 2023 Trends in Patient Payment Communications report examines the latest trends and preferences in healthcare communication, billing, and payment experiences from the patient's perspective, and examines how these preferences have changed year over year.
The rise of virtual nursing: How digital care innovations can address nursing shortages and improve the care experience
June 12, 2023
Nurses across the nation are feeling the post-COVID strain of smaller care teams, larger patient caseloads and cumbersome administrative workflows taking them away from bedside care, resulting in burnout and increased vacancies. The national vacancy rate for nurses in 2022 was 17%, with over 81% of hospitals reporting vacancy rates over 10%.
Healthcare has seen an increase in the adoption of hybrid care, and these strategies can be used to mitigate the strain felt by nursing shortages. Hybrid care approaches that incorporate automated care programs and virtual visits can not only address nursing shortages, but improve the care experience for both clinicians and patients.
