  • Facilitate regular meetings with assigned SOM department/division administrators to discuss financial and revenue cycle performance metrics (e.g., A/R figures, write-offs, collection rates), key trends (e.g., rejection patterns, payor mix shifts), reimbursement opportunities (e.g., reduction of front-end related denials, identified coding opportunities), and other relevant topics.
