Prochant's Take on Effective Coding, Intake, Billing, and Collections
Anatomy of an Efficient Revenue Cycle
For any healthcare provider, the lifeblood of operational sustainability lies in an effective revenue cycle. While most organizations recognize the importance of coding, billing, and collections, not all have mastered the art of integrating these processes seamlessly. Whether it's HME, DME, Home Health, Hospice, Infusion, or Specialty Pharmacy, ensuring an effective revenue cycle is imperative. At Prochant, we believe in developing resilient systems that ensure accurate and prompt payment, safeguarding the financial health of your business.
Mastering the Maze of Medical Billing
Navigating the labyrinth of healthcare reimbursement is no small feat.
- Ever-evolving regulatory requirements
- A patient population bearing a larger share of medical costs
- A demand for digital-first billing solutions
However, to truly capitalize on the potential of a revenue cycle, medical establishments must not just review but reinvent their billing protocols. This involves harnessing cutting-edge technology to cater to the new-age patient, as well as anticipating shifts in healthcare regulations and acting proactively.
Billing with Visibility
Your team should have unrestricted access to critical data. This ensures daily oversight of the processes and tasks handled on your behalf.

- Maintain momentum with regular account management check-ins.
Tools that Transform

- Optimize financial operations through tailored collection strategies.
- Achieve faster turnarounds with continuous day/night shifts.
- Prioritize and concentrate on the metrics that truly matter.
Addressing Collection Challenges in Home-Based Care
Indeed, A/R days have seen a surge, with bad debts burdening home-based care providers. While low reimbursements and frequent claim denials are persistent hurdles, the real challenge lies in adapting to new regulations especially in Medicare.
Yet, while manual collection workflows falter in the modern healthcare landscape, the power of automation has dawned. Every facet of the revenue cycle can be enhanced, with automation spearheading this evolution. The hurdles include:
- Evolving reimbursement models.
- Patient-centric claim denials.
- Grappling with the nuances of home care-specific regulations.
However, the dawn of automation has brought about a transformative shift. With Prochant’s cutting-edge solutions, manual collection workflows are becoming a thing of the past, making way for an automated, streamlined revenue cycle. While low reimbursements and frequent claim denials are persistent hurdles, the real challenge lies in adapting to new regulations especially in Medicare.
A Comprehensive Strategy for Collections
Merely recognizing the need for change isn't enough; providers must champion the transformation. A thorough patient collection strategy encapsulates:
- Immediate payment collection post-service
- Regular patient statement dispatches
- Constructive patient follow-ups
- Designing flexible payment plans
- Enhancing online patient portals
- Active engagement via call representatives
Creating specific metrics for each segment and periodically revisiting them ensures that your collection efforts consistently strike the balance between optimizing revenues and fostering a positive patient rapport.
