Howard County uses Expanse Revenue Cycle to reduce self-pay debt by 42% through community engagement
Howard County leverages MEDITECH’s Revenue Cycle solution to achieve greater financial transparency and efficiency.
While many Critical Access Hospitals are at risk of closing and carry the burden of uncompensated care, Howard County Medical Center CFO Morgan Meyer saw a path to greater financial transparency and efficiency when implementing MEDITECH Expanse.
Utilizing a single EHR and Central Business Office across care settings, staff can easily monitor each patient’s financial situation. Howard County’s management team is able to analyze their financial health across settings using their new Financial Status Desktop.
“At first I was skeptical that I would see what I needed to see,” said Meyer. “But MEDITECH was right. You can drill down to see anything you want with the FSD.”
