In terms of disruption to labs, 2020 is likely the granddaddy of them all given the impact of the global pandemic. Once again, laboratories are faced with the challenge of surviving the initial blow dealt to them because of decreasing volume, the impact to supply chain and, ultimately, how to thrive in such a market.

Business resilience1 is the ability to:

  1. Rapidly adapt and respond to business disruptions, and
  2. Safeguard people and assets, while maintaining continuous business operations.

A key factor of business resiliency is technology. The right technology allows you to adapt and keep your competitive edge. Remember TELCOR is here to help when your organization is faced with tackling a new challenge.

Our comprehensive platform, TELCOR RCM, allows your team to work in one automated system. With TELCOR RCM doing the heavy lifting, your team can focus on difficult collections in order to boost your bottom line.

The Tools
TELCOR RCM is extremely flexible allowing labs to rapidly respond to virtually any scenario. Our dynamic workqueues, add-on modules and flexible configurations allow users to:

  • View charges in real-time for an accurate status of all patient accounts
  • Obtain incomplete billing information via our client portal, iLabBill® Client
  • Automatically check patient eligibility in order to bill the right insurance the first time
  • Provide patients with multiple ways to pay from point-of-service to installment agreements
  • Integrate Document Management for immediate access to requisitions, insurance cards, payer correspondence, supporting documentation for appeal packages, or other documents required to complete work
  • Manage configurations to meet new payer requirements or quickly adapt to bill for a new test to meet consumer demand
  • Validate process changes with 24/7 access to test environment and visibility to see the impact of process changes in production

TELCOR is here to help optimize your revenue cycle and meet your goals, regardless of the challenges in front of you.

The New Normal
