In this video, we discuss why it’s important for your hospital to consider conducting an annual telecommunications review. Here are three primary reasons:
1. Changes in the hospital
With hospitals expanding, moving, closing down facilities, adding physician practices and other changes, it’s essential to review telecommunications costs on an annual basis to ensure they reflect any updates to the hospital.
2. Changes in the market
We’ve seen, on average between 6-12 months, a significant change in pricing, structures, and services that are available in the market.
These changes can impact the best available prices, which could go undetected without a periodic telecommunications review. Click To Tweet
3. Error rates
There’s a very high error rate in billing due to the complexity of the invoices provided by vendors. We’ve seen this occur first-hand with our clients at VIE Healthcare Consulting and have been able to rectify errors in invoices leading to substantial credits.
Learn more about the benefits of annual telecommunications reviews in the video above and how VIE Healthcare Consulting can help your hospital in cost-saving initiatives.
