The Patient Service Cycle
Consider the patient service cycle:
- Check In
- Check Out
Each point can be broken down into numerous visits and procedures, stretching over weeks or years. And, each point requires meticulous examination to ensure accurate, complete and timely billing.
We take the entire process seriously, from the first point of contact through the completion of billable service, claim submission and collection.
