Revenue cycle management

Clinically driven and patient-focused—that’s the foundation of Oracle Health’s revenue cycle management (RCM) solutions. A clinically driven revenue cycle takes information captured by clinicians during care and uses it to drive financial outcomes.

Revenue cycle management solutions

Patient access

Gathering complete and accurate information from patients is a necessary step in managing your organization’s cash flow. Oracle Health can help your organization facilitate patient engagement and access by prioritizing the patient experience.

Scheduling

Oracle Health Scheduling Management workflows help ensure patients are scheduled for the appropriate appointment to receive the right care at the right time by efficiently taking into consideration patient preferences, insurance specifications, and venues.

Registration

Oracle Health Registration Management solution provides users with a broad range of tools and workflows while simplifying the registration user experience based on venue, role, and operational procedures.

Financial clearance

Our financial clearance workflows, within Registration Management, help minimize the amount of information patients are asked to verify during preregistration or on arrival by evaluating whether the data is accurate and up to date, helping to improve the overall preregistration and intake experience.

    • How does patient access leverage third parties?

      Our technology can use HL7 as well as APIs. These connections help streamline the user experience, and in some cases, provide advanced capabilities by combining Oracle Health data with partner data in ways that can drive decision-making and improve workflows.

    • What third parties does patient access connect to?

With an enterprise master person index, your teams can identify and resolve duplicate records to facilitate the integrity of a single person record.
