Expeditive is Showing Rural Hospitals How Remote Revenue Cycle Professionals Can Work Remote (from home)
November 19, 2014 (PRLEAP.COM) Health NewsNovember 19, 2014 - "A number of our clients are critical access hospitals (CAH), and often these facilities are located in remote, hard-to-access areas of the country," reports James Yarsinsky, Expeditive founder and president. "Through voice over Internet (VOIP), email, and teleconferencing, our consultants are able to provide a full range of revenue cycle services."
Yarsinsky notes other benefits of the remote/telecommunicating approach his company has pioneered. Among these advantages is the fact that clients are able to monitor the progress the Expeditive consultants are making, especially in reducing the number of account receivable (A/R) days. Yarsinsky also notes that today's technology makes it possible for consultants to connect with client systems.
"Our pioneering this effort began nearly a decade ago when we were engaged to help hospitals with their interim staffing needs," recalls Yarsinsky. "Many of these facilty clients simply didn't have the internal resources-qualified Medicare billing specialists-so they would rely on our doing this work remotely for them."
Yarsinsky also believes that for consultants, the ability to work from home tends to remove a great deal of stress associated with traveling and working onsite.
"We actually find that productivity increases with our home-based consultants," says Yarsinsky. "They're comfortable and working in familiar surroundings with few outside distractions."
Yarsinsky is also quick to point out that with consultants working remotely, there is no minimum time of project length required.
"We stay engaged until the job is finished," says Yarsinsky.
And that must come as good news while most of the country's hospitals are grappling with another season of record-breaking temperatures that are putting stress on the bottom line.
