The Automation Issue

RCM AdvisorThe Q2 issue of RCM Advisor is focused on automation. The cover story, "Automation Is the Key to Billing Smarter, Not Harder," delves into the benefits of automating routine medical billing tasks. The more you automate and use best practices for medical billing, the better chance you have of helping your clients to get paid quickly and correctly. Not only does minimizing delays and denials in the claims process positively impact your clients, but it also makes a difference for providers, patients, and general public health. You'll also see updates from recurring columns Compliance Issues, Software Talk, From the Road, and a new addition, Ethics Considerations.
