Ted Syverson, Vice President
Monument Health, formerly Regional Health, now a part of the Mayo Clinic Care Network , recently completed a conversion to EPIC and needed a way to maximize financial performance to offset conversion costs. They decided to outsource portions of their revenue cycle to help fill gaps in internal resources and to improve collections, but they needed a way to ensure they were getting the most out of those vendor relationships.
Monument Health chose to partner with Healthfuse, the industry leader in the management of revenue cycle vendors for hospitals and health systems. Healthfuse identified above-market vendor contracts, renegotiated fees, and updated service-level agreements reflective of today’s market. Healthfuse performed account-level audits on 100% of placed accounts and scrubbed 100% of vendor invoices to help ensure accounts were being worked appropriately and stop inappropriate or duplicative fees from occurring.
Healthfuse was able to identify a recurring P&L opportunity of $7.1 million with a three-year impact of $16.9 million.
To date, Healthfuse has delivered:
Collections Improvements of $47M
New Initiatives of $238K
Invoice Recoveries of $118K
Contract Savings of $3.2M
