Business Operations Basics: Tips for Your DME – Part 2 by Analytix Editorial Team | July 13, 2021 | 7:39 am Category : DME As growth plans get underway and business operations start to streamline, it is time to look at increasing profitability for your DME/HME business. Most technological advancements require substantial planning and investment. But the advantages of automation are multiple, especially for driving efficiencies in medical billing for DME/HME systems. Here are two more DME operation tips to help you accelerate business growth. Increasing profitability across business functions There can be no growth plans without adequate capital. For a DME/HME business which relies to a large extent on watertight documentation for successful claim applications, profitability is interwoven with sound accounting practices and strong data management. As your business moves towards growth, operational complexities are expected to increase. More importantly, synchronization between diverse functions such as accounts, better financial management, streamlined payroll and tracking staff work hours and payroll (human resources management) will also come into play. Underlining all of this is the need to ensure teams are motivated, existing work continues uninterrupted and that claim applications, claim processing, and audits, if any, are addressed as required. Leveraging professional assistance can help share in administrative workloads while helping the business continue meeting DME/HME needs. Increasing profitability; improving revenue cycle management The process of revenue cycle management (RCM) in medical billing is central to business profitability. Harnessing professional HIPAA-compliant medical billing assistance enables your DME/HME to build-in profitability across the different functions mentioned above. RCM helps streamline overall business operations while ensuring watertight financial management and better cash availability. RCM is often managed with the help of automation. Customizing software and automation efforts can yield optimal results and help businesses save money. When deployed with the help of expertise, RCM can be streamlined and customized to generate relevant reporting that eventually supports informed decision-making by stakeholders in the business. Maximizing your automation investment Moving to automated software alone may not work without relevant support in the form of expertise and customization. To work optimally, software must be customized not only to business needs, but also upgraded regularly and secured against data breaches and information theft. Moreover, loss of data and records is a concern for many businesses, and entrusting a HIPAA-compliant agency that offers RCM services can be one way in which to deal with this concern successfully.
