May 9, 2024

Transforming healthcare RCM with curated content and continuing education

R1 Provider Edge, a groundbreaking program designed to provide in-depth insights and education on revenue cycle management, is up and running exclusively for R1 clients across the country. We are introducing this program to leverage the power of R1’s partnerships with 93 of the top 100 U.S. health systems, offering clients comprehensive perspectives, detailed industry trend analyses, education opportunities and time-tested revenue cycle best practices. 

As healthcare providers grapple with financial pressures from personnel shortages, perennial fee reductions, challenging payer relationships and escalating costs, R1 Provider Edge offers actionable solutions and counsel for healthcare leaders to tackle these issues, spearhead strategic initiatives and fine-tune internal processes. The program presents exclusive analysis and recommendations on regulatory matters, national industry trends, enabling technologies and revenue cycle intelligence, all curated by R1’s team of experts.  

The program also includes continuing education credits (CECs) to help providers bolster their internal professional development programs and maintain certifications with organizations including the American Academy of Professional Coders, Healthcare Financial Management Association, American Health Information Management Association, American College of Medical Practice Executives and American Association of Healthcare Administrative Management.

Kyle Hicok, Chief Commercial Officer of R1, emphasizes that R1 Provider Edge is designed to equip clients to deal with perennial systemic challenges as well as rapid changes in the healthcare revenue cycle, no matter the cause.
