According to the CAQH Index report in 2018, there was an increase of 18% between 2017 and 2018 in the overall size of healthcare businesses across the U.S. Physical transactions declined by 6%. Health systems are currently making headway in executing electronic processing for claims, coding, and reimbursements. Increasing healthcare expenditures are forcing industry participants-including providers and players-to adjust by accepting factors such as value-centric reimbursement structures, growth in risk sharing, and executing cost limits. These changes, along with other market dynamics, present considerable hurdles to health and hospital system revenue cycles.
Growing demand for workflow optimization in healthcare organizations coupled with innovative synchronized management software systems is expected to propel market growth. Increasing support from government bodies and federal agencies in form of favorable regulatory reforms is driving growth. The market for revenue cycle management is witnessing regular technological advancements and the industry is constantly evolving. Various healthcare providers and payers are rapidly adopting these innovative and upgraded RCM solutions. For instance, R1 RCM Inc launched R1 Professional in January 2020, an advanced RCM solution that is being widely used by large hospital-owned medical groups and other groups involved in independent practices.
R1 Professional revenue cycle management solution would enable healthcare facilities and other stakeholders to implement a standardized RCM strategy of reimbursement and operations model. Innovations and advancements in the RCM solutions have played a key role in improving provider-patient relations and include the implementation of ICD-10 for classifying, coding, and reporting data on disease diagnosis and treatment procedures, which directly helps healthcare systems enhance care delivery. Healthcare facilities are outsourcing revenue cycle management software solutions owing to the multiple advantages associated such as easy availability of trained and skilled professionals, compliance and adherence to required regulations, enhanced efficiency, and cost-effectiveness.
Due to the numerous benefits, available healthcare facilities are readily outsourcing RCM solutions and services. According to a Med USA article published in 2020, approximately two-thirds of healthcare organizations outsource their revenue cycle management solutions and services. The growing adoption rates are anticipated to propel market growth over the forthcoming years. One of the major challenges faced in adopting and implementing revenue cycle management software solutions is the lack of proper reimbursement regulations with respect to insurance and other formalities. The existing reimbursement policy gaps between public and private insurers are restraining the growth of the market for revenue cycle management.
According to a Healthcare Financial Management Association (HFMA) article, the average timeline of reimbursement of payment by public insurers such as Medicare was approximately 28 days whereas private insurers’ timeline was twice than that. The adoption and growth of RCM solutions is hindered due to such delays and discrepancies in reimbursement. However, to tackle these challenges government bodies are undertaking initiatives to improve management of reimbursement coverages through revenue cycle management solutions. In addition, several government organizations across the world are undertaking initiatives to facilitate health data exchange and improve efficiency of healthcare systems.
The ongoing Covid-19 pandemic had an unprecedented and unexpected impact on majority of the healthcare sectors and brought in significant transformations to the normal functioning of healthcare systems. Healthcare providers and healthcare payers struggled through several challenges impacting their revenue earnings and inpatient volume. Medical billing complexity and rising healthcare costs created a drastic rise in demand for outsourcing revenue cycle management solutions across the globe. The surge in demand for advanced and innovative RCM solutions drove key participants to developed value-added features such as payer connect, remote coding services, reporting, analytics, and audit and compliance to improve revenue generation and productivity.
