Passport Health launches new RCM tool

Passport Health Communications today announced the launch of its new revenue cycle management tool called Payment Navigator. The software allows hospitals to perform a financial analysis for uninsured patients prior to service so they can recommend the best payment method and better avoid bad debt and uncompensated care. "There are 46 to 48 million uninsured Americans, the majority of whom depend on hospitals as their health care safety nets. Health care organizations must be proactive in managing their self-pay volume and properly categorizing patients who qualify for certain programs," said Passport CEO Scott MacKenzie in a statement. Franklin-based Passport's RCM solutions are used by a third of U.S. hospitals and 5,000 other health care facilities across the country.
