Revenue Integrity — Taking Charge Of Your Chargemaster
“Revenue integrity” has attained buzzword status, but not long ago, the term didn’t exist. The concept, however, is longstanding. It means being properly reimbursed for patient care while remaining compliant with all applicable laws and regulations.
These efforts involve ongoing evaluations to make sure a healthcare organization’s internal processes and controls are supporting correct, compliant billing procedures to hasten payment and avoid denials. They’re meant to protect and strengthen hospitals by eliminating revenue leakage and compliance risks.
