What Is Medical Banking?

While most people are familiar with the terms revenue cycle management, financial privacy and security and ICD-10, medical banking is a relatively new term in the healthcare industry. Banks have a central role to play in the evolution of electronic business transformation in healthcare, mostly because of their traditional role as processers of the $2.5 trillion that the US spends in healthcare annually. This role places them in a central position for moving the business of healthcare from paper to digital processes - an area of innovation known as "medical banking".

Teamed with healthcare financial systems, some banks offer a new platform of value that can revolutionize healthcare communications both at the business and consumer levels. This platform integrates best of breed technology across banking and healthcare systems.

Medical banking helps providers better manage the business side of healthcare. These best practices solve problems such as:

  • getting paid at point of care
  • reducing end-to-end healthcare administrative costs
  • removing paper-based inefficiency and waste
