TAMPA, Fla., October 25, 2018 (Newswire.com) - The highest ranked vendors in customer satisfaction and client experience are announced by Black Book Research in 20 specific categories of RCM Software Tools and RCM Outsourcing Services. In total, 522 hospitals and inpatient organizations and 3,980 physician practices were represented in the sweeping Q1-Q3 2018 series of polls.
Black Book™ surveyed nearly 4,500 hospital and health system Chief Financial Officers, Vice Presidents of Finance and RCM, Controllers, Business Office Managers, Staff, Consultants and Directors to determine the top-performing vendors among in-demand financial software, systems and outsourcing services, and assess the gaps and urgencies of RCM financial administration.
Additionally, 3,660 physician office business office managers and 941 outpatient, alternative care, clinics, IDN physician practices and ancillary facilities also submitted ballots and evaluated separately.
With health system margins sinking to less than three percent nationwide, providers urgently seek opportunities for capturing all revenue through updated software solutions and innovative outsourcing models.
Black Book conducts polls and surveys with healthcare executives and front-line users about their current technology and services partners and awards top-performing vendors based on performance based on 18 indicators of client experience, loyalty and customer satisfaction.
“The latest wave of challenges accompanying the shift to value-based care find most providers navigating through empowering virtual health, initiating highly patient positive experiences and sinking margins," said Black Book's Managing Partner Doug Brown. "Revenue cycle management is now the most pressing strategic focus in health systems nationwide with system transformation vendors, solutions optimization consultants and RCM outsourcing firms in huge demand.”
