Vancouver, WA (PRWEB) April 06, 2015
BridgeFront and the National Association of Healthcare Access Management (NAHAM) announce an exclusive partnership uniting NAHAM's AccessKeys® with BridgeFront's popular Revenue Cycle and Patient Access online education.
“We’re delighted to be partnering with NAHAM,” said Peter N Cizik, CEO of BridgeFront. “Healthcare is struggling with the changes in reimbursement and Patient Access staff can have a major positive impact on an organization’s performance. NAHAM has developed a set of benchmarks that guides patient access leaders towards things that matter and BridgeFront has a solution that helps staff do the things necessary to actually improve on those measures.”
BridgeFront provides outcomes-based education to help NAHAM members positively impact performance across NAHAM AccessKey indicators. The education program improves operational performance across all dimensions of the revenue cycle. Members can also benefit from customized curriculums mapped to the AccessKeys® key performance indicators, and will be able to track and trend the monthly data compared to the education progress. Tools to benchmark, track and improve their performance over time are now available.
AccessKeys consist of 22 key performance indicators (KPIs) with corresponding benchmarks that are a series of simple, standardized equations with corresponding benchmarks that allow users to evaluate their facility’s performance across five key areas: POS collections, Private-Pay Conversions, Process Failures, Productivity, and Quality. Moving forward, the Industry Standards Committee (ISC) looks to continually update AccessKeys® based on data collected from NAHAM members and develop other industry standards and best practices.
BridgeFront’s revenue cycle and patient access education has been used by more organizations, for more revenue cycle professionals than any other training product available. A clear leader in revenue cycle education, BridgeFront’s courses are now on their fifth edition, keeping pace with the rapid changes in healthcare finance today.
The BridgeFront (Booth #512) and NAHAM partnership will be on display at NAHAM’s upcoming Annual Educational Conference and Expo, April 19-22 in Indianapolis, IN. The conference will focus on the Patient Experience, with a general session and breakout track dedicated to this important topic.
