Pulse Systems Presents the Truth about Revenue Cycle Management Services at Practice Rx

Attendees will learn about dubious business practices performed by some RCM vendors and tips on how to identify these harmful pitfalls in contractual agreements

NORWALK, Conn., Aug. 27, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Pulse Systems, Inc., an industry-leading provider of Electronic Health Record (EHR), Practice Management, and Revenue Cycle Management (RCM) solutions, will reveal some suspicious and little known business practices performed by some RCM vendors, at UBM Medica's Practice Rx conference in Philadelphia, PA> on September 19-20, 2014. 

A presenter at the May Practice Rx conference, Pulse Systems will return in September with a new session encouraging practices to "Look before You Leap: Understanding Revenue Cycle Management Contracts and the Effect on Your Practice." Greg Vap, General Manager, RCM Services at Pulse, will provide a thorough overview of RCM and expose the "fine print" found in different RCM service agreements, including vendors getting paid on revenue they never collect, bait and switch advertising tactics, hidden fees in contracts, and determining the actual services being offered by vendors.  The session will also teach attendees how to compare their RCM performance to best practice standards by specialty.

"Revenue Cycle Management, the life blood for all physician practices, goes far beyond traditional billing and collections," said Samuel S. Ambrose, Chief Marketing Officer of Pulse. "The goal of this session is to help physicians and administrators get educated on some suspicious and unfortunately questionable business practices in the revenue cycle management and billing and collections industries, as well as teach the audience where to look for such language in a contract.  We will also provide tips on what to look for in a true, end-to-end RCM services partner."

Taking place at the Philadelphia Downtown Marriott Hotel, Practice Rx aims to help physicians and office administrators improve their medical practice's bottom line.  For more details about the conference, please visit www.practice-rx.com.
