EHR optimization leads to 53% increase in cash collections at Rangely Hospital

October 25, 2018 / Bill Siwicki

Rangely District Hospital in Rangely, Colorado, was struggling to show progress toward quality measures with limited reporting tools. It was at risk of missing out on revenue from Medicaid and Medicare. The hospital was losing valuable physician and staff time making up for missing functionality. It had inefficient and time-consuming processes for securing authorizations. And it was financially burdened with unexpected add-on costs. “As a critical access hospital that primarily services Medicaid- and Medicare-eligible patients in rural Colorado, our financial health is strongly linked to performance on quality measures,” said Bernie Rice, chief compliance officer at Rangely District Hospital. “But our former IT services were making it harder, not easier, to report out on our performance, which put our ability to collect full payment in jeopardy.”
