This IDC Perspective explores how nontraditional RCM capabilities in a next-generation revenue cycle drive better clinical, operational, and financial integration across the provider service continuum.
"Many providers do not have a clear idea of what next-generation revenue cycle solutions should entail and what impact these can deliver to their organizations," says Mutaz Shegewi, research director, IDC Health Insights. "Barriers between consumers and providers have lowered. Lines between providers and payers have blurred, especially now, with more patients as the payers under high-deductible health plans. All this makes the RCM market ripe for disruption, and the collective innovation will translate into a next-generational technology leap."
