Improving Ambulatory Access to Maximize Revenue

As care continues to shift into the ambulatory setting, inpatient use-rates have declined for all age groups. At the same time, there is mounting pressure – financially, and from increasingly savvy consumers – to enhance the accessibility of ambulatory care. Hospitals and healthcare systems need efficient scheduling and access processes for both primary care and specialty care to capture maximum revenue from ambulatory visits. Optimizing scheduling and access processes also ensures that patients and referring physicians have a positive, seamless, and predictable experience.


This presentation will highlight imperatives for achieving optimal ambulatory scheduling and provides keys to success, focusing on creating a proactive, disciplined, and accountable environment.
