The 2017 HIMSS Revenue Cycle Improvement Task Force (RCITF), of which Patientco is a member, has launched a microsite offering a virtual walkthrough of a consumer-friendly patient revenue cycle experience from start to finish. The site is built upon the ideas laid out by last year’s RCITF and turns the proposed framework into a chain of actionable technology-enabled steps.
The task force collaborated throughout the year on a theoretical patient’s journey through an episode of care to demonstrate how health IT of the future will support decision making for the patient, her husband, and their medical team as it relates to their financial experience.
The microsite is an interactive walkthrough starring a woman who falls in her kitchen, injuring her knee. Leveraging the technologies that will be featured at the HIMSS17 Interoperability Showcase, she and her healthcare providers are able to treat the injury in a way that is both clinically and cost effective.
The virtual walkthrough is the result of EHR, revenue cycle, and payer technology vendors working together to create a positive experience for the patient that benefits all industry stakeholders. Healthcare provider organizations, revenue cycle vendors, and industry experts provided input every step of the way.
HIMSS17 attendees will have the opportunity to interact with these technologies in person at the Interoperability Showcase, where representatives will be present to help design an interoperable revenue cycle solution that fits your needs. Those who are not attending, however, can use the microsite as a guide for their revenue cycle improvements in 2017.
