The Trump administration has recently unveiled a budget plan aimed at easing the country’s deficits and increasing defense funding. The plan contains budgets for several government assistance programs such as social insurance, social security, Medicare, Medicaid and food stamps.

The future of the healthcare revenue cycle management (HRCM) industry is bright. According to reports, the market is expected to grow significantly and hit USD 100 billion by 2024. This is thanks to the increasing use by private clinics, hospitals, diagnostics and ambulatory care centers. The development of value-based healthcare services and RCM solutions will also drive the growth, as well as increased work efficiency and quality of work life among healthcare professionals as a result of an improved level of automation.
Since HRCM is considered a vital part of the healthcare industry, this growth will benefit healthcare facilities, personnel and patients in a lot of ways. Billing processes will be made easier, thus increasing the quality of patient services and curbing down hospital expenses.
