4 ways an ASC can improve financial health through revenue cycle teams

An ASC's financial health is dependent on the quality of its revenue cycle team, according to Fort Myers, Fla.-based Serbin Medical Billing.

Four tips to hiring strong revenue cycle team members:

1. Determine the skills you need in a new team member. These can include certifications, ASC experience and surgical coding skills.

2. Post the job opening on healthcare job boards, such as those hosted by the Ambulatory Surgery Center Association and professional revenue cycle associations.

3. Create a coding test for applicants to take as part of their interview. This helps to ensure the applicant is qualified for the position.

4. Prepare your new hires for success by auditing their work. Share collections data with them and the entire team.
