Because of its complex and elusive nature, maximizing laboratory reimbursement has always been an untapped reserve with the ability to greatly increase laboratory valuation. The only way to successfully navigate the financial and regulatory pitfalls of the current landscape, laboratories of all sizes must turn to efficient revenue cycle management (RCM). But in order to increase valuation through maximized reimbursement requires CEOs and CFOs to possess a unified understanding of what the often misunderstood RCM is exactly.

In order to successfully navigate the financial and regulatory pitfalls of the current landscape, laboratories of all sizes must turn to revenue cycle management (RCM) as the fastest route to that goal.
