The year 2020 started out fine, but then COVID-19 hit. Now physicians are trying to find new ways to stay Competitive and Remain Relevant to their Patients During COVID-19 and Beyond. With national patient encounter volume down over 40% and delays in insurance payments along with an unemployment rate exceeding 12.6M, decrease in cash flow has made it hard to stay in contact with their patients. Additionally, with unemployment payment 40% above normal hourly wages, many front desk, billing staff, and clinical technicians have elected not to come to work.
This session will highlight numerous case studies on how physicians have found unique ways to increase revenues, cut costs, and get prepared when patients feel comfortable returning to the office. A few strategies include movement to telemedicine, outsourcing back-office billing and accounts receivable follow-up, enhance referral tracking, improved appointment reminder alerts, remote patient monitoring and off-site staff augmentation.
