Managing a healthcare organization’s revenue cycle is complex. Allscripts has consulted clients to discuss the top challenges, priorities, and pressures they’re facing in a swiftly changing market. Below are a few concerns that are critical to a practice’s success and ways practices are addressing them.
What Can We Expect from the Healthcare Industry in 2020 and Beyond?
The Healthcare industry has always been an evolving ecosystem, often struggling to change fast enough to keep up with regulatory and patient needs. On top of competitive integrations, increasingly stringent regulations, advances in technology, rising costs and aging populations, Healthcare payers and providers now are facing the COVID-19 calamity. There has never been a time of more intense pressure.
‘Bots in the rev cycle - Hospitals increase revenue recovery with robotic process automation
Hospitals are in a bind. As the shift toward value-based contracts intensifies, revenue cycle operations are becoming increasingly complex. Payers are exploring new ways to quantify value as it relates to reimbursement, which puts additional pressure on hospitals to provide documentation to support claims. Even positive developments such as lower unemployment have led to higher labor costs. All of this has the potential to decrease hospitals’ cash flow and negatively impact the bottom line.
Acceleration of the New Health Economy: The pandemic edits the DNA of the health system
The COVID-19 pandemic is not merely changing one aspect of the health system, such as a new discovery or approach to public health; the crisis is “editing the DNA” of health systems around the world by accelerating what we call the New Health Economy (NHE). For five years, PwC’s Health Research Institute has been tracking the progress of this transformation which has largely been incremental. The novel coronavirus is rewriting the rules of the system so quickly that every health organization will have to adapt so it can emerge stronger in a post-pandemic New Health Economy.
Three Ways Predictive Analytics is Changing Health Outcomes
As the digital health system of the future evolves, the health information ecosystem expands along with it. The robust flow of data is the fuel health systems need to transform quality, safety and performance, informed by data that can be easily exchanged, mobilized and transformed into actionable insights and knowledge that enable people to achieve better health outcomes.
How will you design information architecture to unlock the power of data?
The health industry won’t be the same after the COVID-19 pandemic. In the long run, the upside of this disruption is a permanent change in the way health systems, organizations and consumers use digital health technologies. Widespread adoption of tech-enabled care and emerging technologies will transform the very foundations of health and care. A new information architecture is foundational to unlocking the power of digital technologies and creating the connected health ecosystem of tomorrow.
How has telehealth utilization changed from 2019 to 2020? When this blog was first published in April 2019, telehealth and telemedicine implementation were surprisingly low considering the range of technology solutions available to healthcare providers. According to 2019 Definitive Healthcare data, only about 33 percent of inpatient hospitals and 45 percent of outpatient facilities offered telehealth services to their patients. Since then, a continuing interest in convenient care options and the COVID-19 pandemic have spurred a rapid industry-wide increase in telehealth implementation. Now, about 75 percent of U.S. hospitals are using telehealth and telemedicine systems—a 42 percent increase from 2019 usage.
How has COVID-19 altered our path to the future of health?
Is the COVID-19 pandemic pushing us closer to the future of health, or is it pulling us back? We would argue that it’s a little of both. In some respects, the pandemic is causing the health sector to leap one or two innovation cycles ahead in a remarkably short amount of time. But in other areas, forward momentum has stalled or stopped completely.

A marriage of convenience: how RPA is closing the gap between healthcare and technology
How RPA is closing the gap between healthcare and technology. Things have changed drastically for the healthcare sector over the last few months. At this time of heightened stress and anxiety, it’s vital that doctors’ and nurses’ time is freed up for patients wherever possible – not just now, but for the future too. Necessity is the birth of invention, as they say, and has now seen the doors to healthcare opened wider for the technology industry than ever before.
Hospitals should prepare now for future telehealth demands
Current patient deferral of nonurgent services could lead to a "care debt" down the line, say Duke researchers. To meet those needs, health systems should be building out a robust telemedicine infrastructure.
Telehealth set for 'tsunami of growth,' says Frost & Sullivan
With the COVID-19 pandemic having already set the stage for a massive increase in telehealth consults, the research firm sees an even bigger future – as demand for one-stop virtual visits and remote patient monitoring grows as much as seven-fold.
