White Paper: Improving Your Payer Mix

Full beds, increased expenses, little margin and bad debt. For many hospitals, meeting budget goals is becoming increasingly difficult. In addition, for many providers, the impending capital gap is worsened by demographic trends, aging facilities, emerging competitors, staffing shortages and governmental deficits.

Many hospitals and health systems still spend a majority of their budget on advertising that reaches non-paying or wrong-paying individuals and for which response and a return on investment cannot be calculated.
