Revenue Cycle Analyst

The Solution Consultant within the CLIENT-IT Revenue Cycle Delivery Team program at Client leads solution planning, analysis and design efforts for related projects.

The Solution Consultant is responsible for understanding the strategic direction, priorities and needs of our business partners, as well as designing and facilitating the delivery of IT-based solutions to meet these needs. As a Solution Consultant you will prepare, present and collaborate on all required deliverables with the technical solutions project team; analyze and evaluate hardware, software, tools and related processes required to support proposed solutions; and develop preliminary solution architectures. Additionally you must develop alternative design solutions and design high-level network models; and utilize enterprise standard process methodology and tools. You will also be responsible for assisting business partners in developing their testing approach and plans, and in working as part of the technology testing team to plan and execute testing, to ensure both functional and non-functional requirements are met.

The CLIENT-IT Revenue Cycle program will improve the comprehensive, program-wide revenue cycle capabilities to achieve strategic goals, in particular, the successful implementation and support of self-funded and deductible products. The Initiative will help CLIENT achieve revenue collection goals, obtain the benefit of new information systems, and maintain regulatory compliance. Objectives of the Revenue Cycle program are to:

Support Client's growth strategy
Enable self-funded and deductible products
Contribute to the financial imperatives for cost structure improvements
Ensure appropriate reimbursement from non-dues revenue sources on a timely basis
Leverage CLIENT HealthConnect for documentation and coding
Sustain a high compliance standard

Client's Revenue Cycle program supports all regions in driving toward consistent implementation/configuration, where possible, of Resolute, ePremis and Ingenix. This includes designing a sustainable revenue cycle model to achieve the above objectives.

Billing systems are not consistent or efficiently performed throughout the organization. Regional and functional area solutions vary by payor/financial class for CLIENT covered members, members with other plans (eg Coordination of Benefits, Other Coverage Information) and non-members who may have government or other commercial plans, or who may qualify for third-party or ClientMedical Financial Assistance programs. These inconsistencies and inefficiencies across the organization result in increased claims, increased A/R days, lost 3rd party reimbursement on uncovered services, increased bad-debt from self pay, less than optimal verification of patients eligible for CLIENT MFA (Charity Care), and an inability to consistently and accurately collect patient liabilities at the point of service.
