Transform Patient Access

Health care systems are confronted with a number of market forces that are contributing to escalated debt and affecting the entire revenue cycle. From an increase in denials tied to changing regulatory and payor requirements to increasing patient liability and patients that are not prepared to pay, the impact is staggering. Compounding these issues is an overstressed patient access staff that must rework data held in disparate technology, with the cumulative impact resulting in a precarious financial imbalance in the function of today's typical patient access department. 

Patient access is the first point where your hospital system can counter these market forces. nThrive Patient Access Solutions are capable of maximizing point-of-service collections, improving patient satisfaction and decreasing payor denials.
