The more we work with Chargemaster Toolkit® and Online Reference Toolkit®, the more we value the system.
— Tom Richard, Director Contracting & Pricing at Northfield Hospital
Provider systems are in a rapidly changing healthcare landscape that is putting enormous pressure on revenue cycle systems to keep up. Transitions to risk-based payment models, expanding health systems, calls for pricing transparency, and lower reimbursement levels are fueling the fire for hospitals to adapt quickly as they attempt to balance mission and margin.
With Craneware’s portfolio of charge capture and pricing solutions, provider systems gain the tools and capacity to automate management of charge and claims data to deliver financial improvement to the provider systems’ bottom line. Even during times of increasingly complex coding and regulatory changes, the focus can shift toward identifying missed revenue opportunities and fixing process breakdowns that are causing costly reoccurring errors.
The increased visibility across the health system will enable more productive conversations with clinical and financial departments. This critical connection will improve accuracy for billing for services, pharmaceutical and supply purchases and create sustainable process for capturing legitimate revenue and minimizing compliance risk.
