VANCOUVER, Wash., Jan. 1, 2013 /PRNewswire-iReach/ -- One of the best ways to increase healthcare revenue is to improve staff knowledge in payment and billing processes, while keeping them up-to-date with annual regulation changes. BridgeFront's new Career Ladder Education Program now makes it easy.
Employees can start anywhere on the ladder and move up though our proven sequence of online courses. For example, start new hires with the 101 Foundational Concepts and then move them up to 201 Developing Skills.
Or, you can start staff members at the 201 level and then move them to the 301 Mastery Skills when they are ready. For all employees, our Annual Compliance courses are a must to stay up-to-date on today's regulations.
"Since adopting our new training model and incorporating BridgeFront's online education, the training time required by supervisors and the QA Trainer has been reduced by approximately 50%—resulting in both a time and cost savings," said Christine Fontaine, Director of Revenue Cycle Operations at Shore Health. "In addition, the team understands the concept of the whole revenue cycle, where their job fits in it and how mistakes can impact the bottom line."
The course content of each level in the Career Ladder Program focuses on today's essential skills for patient access, intake, registration, accounting, and medical billing—as well as regulatory topics. Here are the program details:
Revenue Cycle 101: Foundational Concepts provides new employees with an introduction to the basics of the revenue cycle, cutting on-boarding time in half.

This program consists of 16 courses and will take approximately 9 hours to complete.
Revenue Cycle 201: Developing Skills helps existing revenue cycle and patient access staff mature into even more productive contributors.
