A Roadmap to the Patient Financial Experience of the Future: Part II of a Five Part Series

In March of 2016, we published the first of this five-part series, entitled A Roadmap to the Patient Financial Experience of the Future.  The initial paper considered the technology required to realize the HIMSS Revenue Cycle Improvement (RCI) Task Force’s vision of the Patient Financial Experience of the Future.  This paper looks at the Patient Financial Experience from the view of the physician and non-physician providers, collectively referred to as providers. For this analysis, the task force challenged itself to consider the back-office healthcare revenue cycle management (RCM) functionality required at the provider level to facilitate the task force’s vision. Future papers will focus on the functionality required by hospitals, post-acute care settings, and payers to realize this vision.
