Revenue Cycle Transformation
Maintaining near-perfect balance
A winning balance beam performance means pushing skills to the limit while maintaining near-perfect balance on a surface less than four inches wide. Health care providers today face a similar challenge—delivering high quality patient outcomes and desired profit margins while adhering to a growing array of regulatory requirements and other dynamic forces.
Stretching the limits
Deloitte’s Revenue Cycle Transformation practice works with health care providers to help them identify ways to increase their net revenue, accelerate cash flow, and reduce costs by addressing people, process, and technology components across the revenue cycle spectrum. Our professionals employ a prescriptive, yet tailored, approach that focuses on delivering shared services model sustainability, process standardization and integration, workflow automation, technology improvements, training, and enhanced patient experience.
