Combining Technology with Humanity
1st Results is more than just an outsourced billing and accounts receivable management company. 1st Results can manage the entire system which impacts your bottom line from the patient’s initial contact to a paid-in-full account. The process is managing your hospital/medical practice’s revenue cycle starts before the patient visit and ends when there is a zero-balance owed to you. As simple as this sounds on paper, we’re sure you know from experience the complications and added stress the collection process can have on your time, resources, and positive patient relations.
The additional time inevitably required to effectively manage your revenue cycle can translate into additional costs, over-worked staff, and frustrated patients. 1st Results enables you to focus on patient care and activities that generate revenue for your office, while our professional billing staff and “Compassionate Collection Approach” reduces your receivables while building patient good-will.
