RCM Tip of the Day: Curtail Tax ID Numbers

As seen in Becker’s Hospital CFO Report: Written by Kelly Gooch

While downsizing these numbers is a cumbersome task that requires diligent follow-through, an outsourced partner with proven knowledge and resources can make a world of difference in regaining control.”
