First facility in the Florida health system goes live on Oracle Health clinically-driven patient accounting product to bring automation and intelligence to its billing cycleAustin, Texas—April 12, 2023
BayCare Health System, a 16-hospital system serving West Central Florida, is using Oracle Health’s RevElate at Mease Countryside Hospital, a 387-bed facility. With RevElate Patient Accounting, BayCare can reduce repetitive and time-consuming manual data entry by automating multiple steps in the billing cycle. This helps them lower cost-to-collect and create a better experience for patients and staff.
RevElate, which is currently live at BayCare’s initial facility, brings together a unified view of clinical and financial information to give customers better visibility into patient activity and accounts. The system tracks payments from patients and health insurance payers to drive more accurate billing by helping users understand expected reimbursements and remaining balances. BayCare plans to further deploy RevElate across its entire network this year.
“BayCare is always striving to efficiently manage our enterprise revenue cycle process, and we appreciate Oracle Health’s commitment to revenue cycle efficiency with RevElate,” said Lynda Gorken, vice president for patient financial services, BayCare Health System. “By building on the strength of Soarian Financials, which worked well for us, RevElate is enabling us to bring clinical and financial information together, supporting our mission of delivering a quality patient experience at every step, from intake to final billing.”
BayCare is ranked among the nation’s top 20% of large health systems and is the leading non-profit health provider in West Central Florida. For more than 30 years, BayCare has relied on Oracle Health technology including lab, pharmacy, electronic health record, and RevElate solutions to create efficiencies in their business and better serve patients.
