Human Resources

More than just company culture, human resources departments deal with interpersonal conflict, payroll & benefits, organizational structure, and staff management. Your office manager might be overwhelmed handling all of these tasks as well as marketing and other business-growth responsibilities.

Online tools can be useful when you want to outsource more automated HR processes like payroll, timesheet management, job postings, employee handbooks, and more. We recommend checking out Namely, HR for Health, or PurelyHR for a free trial or consultation.

Billing & Coding

When it comes time to bill the insurance companies and input claims, you might find yourself out of your depth. Plus, paying the salary and benefits for an in-house biller or trying to manage your claims yourself could increase your expenses and lead to more denials.

If you outsource your claim management to a revenue cycle management service, you know that insurance experts are handling it. Also, you're more likely to experience a lower denial rate and uninterrupted billing service.
