PRSM Healthcare is solely dedicated to helping gastroenterology (GI) practices with the challenging and time-consuming task of procedure recalls. At many practices across the country, only 15-20 percent of patients return for their recall procedure at the right time.
PRSM Healthcare exclusively focuses on the non-clinical area of patient engagement that happens before the patient arrives in the practice office, endoscopy center or hospital for their endoscopic procedure.
Missed recalls are not only detrimental to the health of patients, but they also affect the financial well-being of the gastroenterology practice. This is a time of unprecedented pressure on the financial side of medical practices, and the majority cannot afford to miss income opportunities.
Since most GI practices rely upon three outpatient procedures to provide 60-70 percent of their revenues (and colonoscopies comprise 60-70 percent of this procedure volume), the inability to adequately manage recall creates significant revenue and patient care challenges.
