Healthcare organizations are aware that accurate entry of patient demographic data is perhaps the most important part of the revenue cycle process chain. Inaccurate or incorrect input of demographic information can result in claim denials, and consequently, delayed payments, hampering the overall revenue cycle. As the data captured in the demographic entry process consists of every detail of the patient, it forms the base for the medical record and impacts the insurance claims payment. Accurate information of patients is the key to ascertain the patient's eligibility and benefits, obtaining prior authorization, and error-free claims filing.
