Administrative Simplification LinkedIn Group
Note that the AMA Administrative Simplification LinkedIn Group was formerly called the AMA Practice Efficiency & Management Group. In addition, AMA Practice Management Alerts emails have been discontinued. Please join the AMA Administrative Simplification LinkedIn Group to continue to receive information from the AMA on administrative simplification topics.
A key part of practice efficiency relates to the administrative processes in your practice associated with the claims revenue cycle. Cost estimates of inefficient health care claims processing, payment and reconciliation range from $21 to $210 billion. In the physician practice, this expense comprises 10-14% of practice revenue. Clearly, there is a lot of room for improvement.
The focus of the American Medical Association (AMA) Administrative Simplification LinkedIn Group is on helping you improve and streamline administrative processes in your practice to reduce associated costs and enhance your claims revenue cycle. In the physician practice, using electronic health care transactions and other automated solutions is a primary driver of simplifying administrative processes.
The AMA Administrative Simplification LinkedIn Group is designed to encourage dialogue on a wide variety of topics to help your practice make the most of administrative automation, including:
- best practices in administrative simplification
- step-by-step tips on incorporating electronic remittance advice (ERA), electronic funds transfer (EFT) and more into your claims revenue cycle; and
- solutions to real-life challenges in practice automation.
Physicians, practice staff, consultants and other health care partners are invited to join this group. Comment on our posts—or create your own! Ask questions, share your best practices and join the conversations.
