Health Equity’s Role In Your Revenue
Organizations such as WHO, CDC, the AMA, and others agree that health inequity costs the U.S. billions of dollars. Medical practitioners and healthcare organizations know firsthand how health inequities can result in patients not adhering to recommended treatments. Not only does this have the potential to delay a patient’s recovery, but it may also lead to lost revenue and negative quality scores (e.g., STAR ratings).
As a result, health equity should be a top strategic priority for every healthcare business. In this on-demand webinar, Leonta (Lee) Williams, AAPC Director of Education, shares how to incorporate health equity processes to ensure your patients are getting the best care — and you’re getting optimal revenue.
