To solve this problem, providers are rethinking the role of revenue cycle in overall patient engagement strategies. They’re discovering that a positive billing and payment experience can impact patient satisfaction and loyalty as well as reduce costs and raise revenue.

  • El Camino Hospital in Mountain View, Calif., achieved an 82 percent patient satisfaction rating.
  • At ValleyCare Health System based in Livermore, Calif., 78 percent of patients now recommend ValleyCare due to their billing experience.
