In recent times, the landscape of healthcare in India has witnessed rapid transformations. One notable change is the emergence of account receivables, a concept that has been relatively foreign to the Indian healthcare industry until now. This shift has compelled hospital owners, especially those running small and mid-sized facilities, to reevaluate their patient payment management policies.
Traditionally, patients in India typically paid for healthcare services out of their own pockets. Hospital owners didn't need an elaborate system to track patient dues. However, with the introduction of various government healthcare schemes and patients increasingly opting for health insurance claims, hospitals are now forced to adapt to a new era of managing their accounts receivables.
Unlike the Western world where medical billing BPOs (Business Process Outsourcing) have long served as a solution for this purpose, Indian hospitals often find such services cost-prohibitive. Therefore, they require a different approach, one that can be integrated within their own premises and align with the Indian healthcare ecosystem's unique challenges and opportunities.
