Revenue Cycle Management

The Rybar Group provides proven methods to evaluate the various functions of the revenue cycle, quantifying the opportunities for improvement and improved cash flow. They analyze critical points in a practice’s revenue cycle process that affect payment, comparing metrics to local and national benchmarks, and synergize efforts for improvement.

Cash flow improvement is a primary focus of their revenue cycle activities. Their team will assess the current processes and systems of a practice for improvement opportunities. From scheduling, check-in, registration, point of- service collections, and front, middle and back/billing activities, our experienced consultants will assist and improve the practice’s processes in order to improve financial performance, increase leadership knowledge, reduce denials, optimize cash flow, and collect and retain revenue.

Operational Assessment

In today's fiscal environment, proactive organizations need to evaluate their practice operations to ensure the use of best practices. The operation of any physician practice is a complicated process with many different functions and systems. The Rybar Group’s consultants provide an end-to-end process review from the patient and physician perspective, eliminating inefficiencies, improving controls and shortening cycle times. The outcome is a more efficient workflow and improved financial performance for the practice.

Fee Schedule Analysis

The fee schedule for any practice is an important component that affects profitability and revenues. It is important to set the fee schedules comparable to the market and at an optimal rate in order to secure profits and avoid long-term losses. With The Rybar Group’s Fee Schedule Analysis, their consultants will perform an assessment of your top procedures and will provide a market analysis of the fees charged compared to other professional practices in the same geographical area.

Practice Valuation

The Rybar Group's Practice Valuation service provides a report that estimates the fair market value of the practice based on applicable valuation methods. Equipment appraisal services are also available upon request.

The Rybar Group has internal resources available to assist you with this need, as well as a number of external resources through subcontractor relationships and through their membership in the BDO Alliance, a nationwide association of independently owned local and regional accounting, consulting and service firms. They will assess the best resource to meet the specific need of the practice.
