Revenue cycle management is a software used for medical activities such as medical billing, scheduling of appointments, keeping a track of the patient's registration and tracking final payments.

For instance, the Affordable Care Act (ACA) implemented in the U.S., focuses on expanding health insurance coverage to individuals. The act is aimed to improve the quality of healthcare services and reduce the cost of care. The expanding insurance coverage is anticipated to increase the number of reimbursements as well as denials that need to be managed through RCM. Additionally, rising healthcare spending will increase the number of medical facilities thus the demand for solutions such as revenue cycle management systems to manage healthcare services. However, the dearth of skilled professionals who can efficiently manage this system hampers the overall industry growth.
