Last week, Bart Teague, executive financial director of patient financial services at West Tennessee Healthcare, connected with Joe Goedert of Health Data Management. In the article, Tennessee health system seeks revenue cycle improvement, Bart shares insight on how the MedeAnalytics partnership has aided the health system in their efforts to improve their revenue cycle. Bart highlights how analytics has allowed them to do the following:
- Analyze 4,000 record reviews
- Find $3.7 million in refunds owed
- Win $900,000 in payment appeals
He also discusses what the organization hopes to gain through the continued partnership. In particular, West Tennessee plans to leverage MedeAnalytics’ solutions to improve revenue cycle workflows and develop a more centralized process as patients move through the system. Analytics will also allow the organization to assess the process of creating HIPAA transactions and ultimately, improve point of service collections.
