Automating mundane business practices allows health systems to focus on improving revenue cycle health. The use of an AI-driven digital workforce consists of process automation, cognitive automation, and built-in reporting capabilities. It doesn’t require a robot, but it does offload manual redundancies like checking payor websites, making sure data is filled accurately, or increasing the speed of completing repetitive, transactional processes.
Focus on Strengths Not Data Burden
Revenue cycle departments become much more strategic when focusing on health system strengths rather than administrative burden. Costly, labor intensive, error-prone tasks are exactly where automation shines, transforming the business of healthcare and taking the waste out of the system.
Technology-driven process automation is implemented via the same route as manual data entry. This makes it an ideal tool to apply at the front-end of claim management to better understand the claims process, check claim status, and offload tasks so that the staff can handle what’s most important for human interaction. The goal of using automation is to “add” a virtual employee who can go through the logical steps in a claims process, accessing the data needed in multiple systems, and filling in missing or incomplete information necessary to process the claim. Often this is completed after hours or on weekends, allowing for much faster processing. Boston Software Systems takes the steps necessary to turn repetitive, error-prone manual input into accurate, complete information.
Actionable insight to improve clinical, financial, technical, and organizational performance is gained by automating the following processes:
- Checking for prior authorization
- Eligibility checking
- Managing data between multiple systems, sifting through data volumes, extracting the right information for the right documentation
- Payment processing
- Collection activities normally reserved for manual data entry
