Coker ValuePathâ„¢ Services: Successfully Navigate the Path to Value
by Ellis "Mac" Knight, MD | Senior Vice President\CMO at Coker Group  
Change tends to occur almost imperceptibly. Have you ever noticed how your children don't seem to have grown at all, until grandma comes for the Holidays and points out how big they've gotten!
Despite the expectation for some moment of significant changes in the healthcare system, the movement of the industry toward value-based reimbursement models has taken longer than most of us expected. Even now, the transition from volume to value, seems to come not in quick jolts, but instead, in small incremental shifts that many don't even recognize as part of the overall volume to value transformation.

Revenue Cycle Management - It's More Than You Think
by Jeff Gorke | Senior Vice President  at  Coker Group
Revenue is the lifeblood of any business. Businesses cannot thrive nor survive, regardless of their market segment or service line, without cash in the door. Whether privately held or publicly financed (e.g., stocks/equity; bonds), the inflow of revenue and efficient revenue cycle management (RCM) precede the viability of any business.
Given the margins in healthcare, this factor is no less true in the operation of ambulatory physicians (or private practices) employed by health systems. Stunningly, some institutions and practices continue to under-invest or "back burner" the significance of revenue cycle management and its accompanying component pieces.
