Time and efficiency are of the essence for every Patient Financial Service Director,
You have a diverse set of challenges that need solutions today. You have a department that’s pulled in many directions. The executive suite wants revenue analyses and projections. The needs of the under- and uninsured population continue to stress your facility, and the registration and admissions departments are asking for customer service guidance and financial counseling training. Claim denials are always a concern, but lately the numbers have grown. It all comes down to a strong bottom line. You’re doing your best, but it would be nice to have some help.
Help is here. The PFS Director’s Handbook identifies specific revenue cycle issues and delivers working solutions — field-tested to ensure success — that you can implement, no matter the size of your facility.
While most revenue cycle books address a single issue, this book and CD-ROM package delivers proven step-by-step processes you can use to identify and resolve the most significant issues facing PFS directors.
With the PFS Director’s Handbook you will be able to:
Overcome collection pitfalls in pre-registration and admission

Full chapters on metrics and key indicators, denials, job descriptions and competencies, and charity care policies
