2022 outlook: strategic revenue cycle priorities

2022 outlook strategic revenue cycle priorities

This report represents the Revenue Cycle Academy research team’s analysis into the trends and strategies that will help healthcare organizations move forward throughout the rest of 2022 and into early 2023. Each section has been written by a senior member of our research team and represents their own analysis of where leaders should focus their efforts. The analysis is informed by our own years of experience, hot topics within incoming research questions from the membership community, a review of industry literature, our own data and surveys, and most importantly, our conversations with leaders such as yourselves.

Each section of the report is dedicated to a specific revenue cycle area: patient access, middle revenue cycle, and billing and collections. We have also included an overall revenue cycle section, which represents themes that span across or do not fit neatly into one of the other areas. Within each section, you will find a high-level overview of the trends that each area is facing alongside five strategies for consideration. Additional bullet points on “where to start” will provide key takeaways learned from other healthcare organizations that have leveraged similar strategies in the past. Altogether, our aim is to provide both tactics for success as well as the rationale behind why such tactics may be needed this year specifically.
