Of course, there are pros and cons to every care delivery approach. But as we move from siloed care delivery models to aligned entities centered on improving consumer outcomes, the case for centralized scheduling and billing provides benefits to all involved.
Consider the benefits of centralized scheduling and billing and how to get started.
The benefits of centralized scheduling:
Centralizes activity for a group, making it more convenient for consumers and referring physicians
Relieves physicians and their practices of administrative functions to better focus on clinical care
Eliminates communication barriers among departments to shorten appointment and wait times
Prepares consumers with insurance clearance and financial counseling to effectively reduce no shows
Improves economies of scale to ultimately drive operational efficiencies and reduce costs
