How to Get the Most from Change Healthcare’s Revenue Performance Advisor

By Jason Strandberg posted 27 days ago


The Revenue Performance Advisor (RPA) support team serves RPA clients from small physician practices to large provider organizations. Our team is skilled to handle a variety of questions related to revenue cycle, from patient access and eligibility, to claim submissions, to ERA files, and more.

Our customers face a variety of opportunities and challenges in running their businesses, especially given the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic.

Prior to the pandemic, smaller healthcare practices were doing a lot to be safe, operating with decreased in-office patient visits and converting to new telehealth services where possible. As the pandemic took hold, the market saw a massive reduction in overall patient visits. Fortunately, in-person patient visits rebounded in mid-2020 as physician practices and facilities adapted to ongoing challenges and safety concerns. Overall numbers are nearly back to pre-pandemic volumes.

With the increase in patient visits and resulting decrease in staff bandwidth, now more than ever it’s important that our RPA customers have what they need to run their businesses more efficiently, using resources like the RPA Community and online training videos. We are always here if you need us, but we believe you can be more productive, efficient, engaged, and knowledgeable by using the learning tools and best practices available to you online as a first line of reference.
