Rcm Advantage: Transformative Revenue Management for Healthcare

Jonathan G. Wiik Mha Mba

Healthcare is still broken in our country. There are lots of opportunities to fix healthcare, and one of those opportunities is for providers to develop and implement a sound revenue management strategy. If healthcare was already accessible, affordable, frictionless, and simple, there would be no need for this book. Every provider wants to deliver exceptional patient outcomes
while also keeping their business sustainable, but hospitals and health systems are facing many headwinds and
struggling with how to maximize revenue in a cost-effective way. It's time to rethink revenue cycle management (RCM)
and give healthcare leaders the innovation needed to ensure financial health and enable confident decision-making through greater accuracy, data access and predictive insights. Imagine the power of a platform, providing elegant insights and analytics from all the different areas of revenue management (RM) - versus siloed information coming from multiple sources, multiple
vendors, and with multiple different priorities. Hospitals and health systems need to stop thinking about RCM
and instead focus on a new approach: rethinking RM to break the cycle of inefficiency.

Praise for this book

"In healthcare, there is a lot of information and a lot of ideas, but it's rare to
take those same ideas and information and then turn them into actionable
and meaningful outcomes. Jonathan Wiik not only understands this at
a level that brings immediate value, but also helps to drive sustainable
changes to organizations. Within healthcare, there are a lot of folks that
talk the talk, but it's rare to find those that can also walk the walk in a truly
meaningful and impactful way. Wiik does both to a level that is not only
refreshing but instills confidence as you work with him. Healthcare needs
more Jonathan Wiik's in it."
--Miguel "Mike" Vigo IV, Chief Revenue Cycle Officer, UC San Diego Health

"Healthcare has been on an unsustainable trajectory for a very long time.
This book is a call to action. Wiik not only challenges healthcare leaders to
solve the problems facing our industry, but he also provides a foundational
education for disruption. Weaving together research, anecdotes and humor,
Jonathan explains the state of healthcare funding in a way that's inspiring
and engaging. This is a must-read for healthcare leaders."
