White paper: Improving Medical Record Retrieval and Procurement

Source AHIMA Smartbrief September 7, 2022

Medical record retrieval and procurement remain a challenge for payers, providers, and patients. Delays and noncompliance result in excessive costs and the unnecessary allocation of resources that could be directed toward population health initiatives and patient care. The solution is not simple; it will require regulatory changes and overcoming long-standing friction between payers and providers. Improving access to medical records, however, is a win-win for all stakeholders.

A new white paper from Ceris, in collaboration with AHIMA, uncovers insights about medical record retrieval and how payer organizations can improve payer-provider relationships, address procurement challenges and ensure payment integrity.
