HFMA and Guidehouse Survey Findings Featured in FierceHealthcare
The majority of hospitals are devoting more dollars to technology to support revenue cycle management, but few are realizing the full potential of those systems, and EHRs may be to blame.
Nearly three-quarters of health system chief financial officers and revenue cycle management executives said their technology budget is increasing, according to a survey by Healthcare Financial Management Association (HFMA) and Guidehouse. Nearly a third said their budget was increasing more than 5%.
Revenue integrity, clinical documentation, and business analytics were among the top focus areas for healthcare executives, and the majority of priorities outlined by respondents relied on technology.
