RCM tip of the day: Focus on optimal staffing

Hiring the right staff and utilizing their strengths appropriately plays a key role in efficient hospital revenue cycle management, said Tom Romeo, general manager of healthcare IT and Quanum Solutions at Quest Diagnostics.

"You want a minimal amount of people in your accounts receivable department," he told Becker's. "Hire energetic, make-it-happen, multitask-oriented people to work your accounts. Invest in these good employees … and consider reassigning those who are less productive to areas of the practice that may align with their strengths."
