In today's volatile healthcare environment, a revenue integrity program is vital to a provider's success. Adherence to policies and procedures, specifically in the middle of a hospital’s revenue cycle, can make the difference in preventing gross revenue leakage and ensuring accurate reimbursement. In this presentation, we discuss the challenges facing healthcare providers and the revenue integrity process that can reduce the risk of revenue loss and payment denials.

"I find the Southern Atlantic Healthcare Alliance to be a valuable resource and partner. Having access to a Listserv is extremely beneficial in building relationships with other hospital members and sharing/obtaining information when needed. Education provided is relevant and applicable and the Team Meetings afford an opportunity to collaborate, network, and strengthen relationships among team members. Members have input into education provided and content of team meetings, which ensures that needs/priorities are being addressed. I have been affiliated with SAHA for a number of years and have always found the staff to be accommodating, resourceful, and customer oriented." - Debbie Sanders, Director of Education, Halifax Regional
