Charge Analytics and Chargemaster Team

The Charge Analytics and Chargemaster teams are focused on ensuring that technical charges and payments for the hospitals and clinics are processed accurately, timely and completely. To accomplish this mission, the team members perform routine tasks that may identify opportunities for improving charge capture, billing and payment posting processes. Lastly, the team serves as the CFO’s delegate for determining prices for all technical services.

Each of these critical functions serves as key control processes around the management of the revenue cycle for the hospitals and clinics.
