Acusis’ approach to Revenue Cycle Management (RCM) is full circle which provides the most optimum experience to their clients. Acusis has a tenured team consisting of proven RCM experts and consultants on Billing, Coding, CDI, Risk Adjustment, HCC, Account Receivables & Denials Management.
Conventional approach to RCM focusses on getting the claims submitted soon after the patient encounter and may omit critical steps to avoid possible denials. Claim resubmissions & Account Receivable follow ups are laborious, research oriented and best done by “fresh pair of eyes”. Moreover, in-house RCM teams start experiencing severe staff shortage when they have to respond to government run quality programs, CDI initiatives and audit findings. These instances occur sporadically and need time and additional skillsets. So, unless the RCM team adopts a comprehensive approach, facility runs the risk of leaving substantial revenue on the table. What can facilities do in such a situation? Well, they need quality on-demand staffing from an RCM partner who can be their stand-by team helping them with required resources with the right skills at the right time.
Over the last two decades Acusis has been a partner to many organizations to reclaim their lost revenue and stabilize their bottom-line in a time-bound manner.

Right at the start of association, Acusis establishes revenue goals and identifies key areas of improvement and control to be addressed. After mutual agreement, Acusis RCM team works as an extension of facility internal team.
While the revenue goals are being aggressively pursued, compliance areas and quality programs are given equal priority. A dedicated account manager for every facility combined with Acusis’ customer-first attitude and transparent communication keeps key stakeholders informed about progress being made. Acusis has a tenured team consisting of proven RCM experts and consultants on Billing, Coding, CDI, Risk Adjustment, HCC, Account Receivables and Denials Management.
