Improving Point-of-Service Collections: A Rural Hospital Perspective
Presented by Michelle Paoletti, Patient Access Manager, Saint Alphonsus Medical Center - Baker City
Critical access hospitals face a unique set of challenges with their rural locations, small markets and limited resources. Adding to these challenges, rural hospitals – like all hospitals – must now deal with higher patient out-of-pocket expenses that are squeezing margins that were already razor thin.
As patient out-of-pocket payments grow, the demand for patient friendly billing and transparency is becoming even more important. Patients are demanding transparency and they expect providers to be able to quantify the costs at or before the point of service.
In this webinar, hear how Saint Alphonsus Medical Center, a critical access hospital located in eastern Oregon, increased upfront cash collections and improved patient satisfaction by incorporating patient payment estimation technology into their workflow. Michelle Paoletti, Patient Access Manager, will describe how her organization transitioned to a culture of point-of-service collections by having meaningful payment discussions with patients upfront. Additionally, Michelle will reveal what’s next for Saint Alphonsus, including their plans to streamline the financial assistance process.
