Revenue Cycle Management Market: Growing demand for AI & cloud-based deployment

Revenue Cycle Management (RCM) in healthcare industry has fast become a buzzword over the past few years. It enables the healthcare organizations to manage payments, claims processing, and revenue generation, thereby accelerating the whole revenue cycle in an efficient manner. RCM solution begins when a patient enters or schedules an appointment. It automates the whole procedure with initiation of the process by the patient, quick follow ups, determining the eligibility of the patient, collecting their payment, effective tracking of the claims process, and working on rejected claims among others. The rising need for streamlining the whole process has further boosted the demand for RCM solutions, thereby triggering the growth of the RCM market.

The global Revenue cycle management market is projected to reach USD 67.8 billion by 2026 from USD 40.9 billion in 2021, at a CAGR of 10.6% during the forecast period.

The combination of data and artificial intelligence (AI) has the potential to improve outcomes and reduce costs by applying machine learning algorithms and predictive analytics to reduce drug discovery times, provide virtual assistance to patients, and reduce the diagnosing time for ailments by processing medical images. The adoption of AI in healthcare is rising due to its ability to optimize clinical as well as non-clinical processes, thereby solving a variety of problems for patients, providers, and the overall healthcare industry. Manual and redundant tasks that occur during patient access, coding, billing, collections, and denials can be automated with the help of AI. AI integrated with RCM can perform these functions more accurately by imitating intelligent human behavior through algorithms that find patterns and plan future actions to produce a positive outcome.
