Integral Healthcare Solutions’ (IHS) right-sourcing strategic approach is designed to help providers meet the challenges of today’s healthcare revenue cycle environment – the need to maximize cash and available resources with scalable solutions unique to their situation. Rather than being forced to commit to totally off-site or on-site service support for various operations, providers need the flexibility to scale there purchased services support — portions of which may require off-site, onsite or a site blended mix of vendor support.
IHS’ right-sourcing strategy combines the key benefits of off-site outsourcing:
- Greater Resource Allocation Flexibility
