Perspectives on Patient Responsibility Presented by Blake Walker and Brian Flynn
As presented at our 2022 Healthcare Innovation Workshop March 30th-April 1st, 2022
Today’s era of healthcare is defined by rising patient responsibility. This trend is a catalyst for increased patient consumerism and medical debt. Several important factors are propelling patients to take on an increased burden of medical costs. In this presentation Blake will explore the underlying factors fueling this trend and the associated need for more advanced and efficient billing processes to optimally manage patient responsibility. This presentation will also include results from an online survey conducted with independent medical practices and medical billing companies to gain deeper insight into these topics.
