Revenue Cycle Services for Ambulatory Surgery Centers
Ambulatory Surgery Centers (ASC) are on the cutting edge of healthcare. You need a revenue cycle partner who can move as fast as you do and who understands how important charge capture is to your business.
Our extensive background in revenue cycle management for hospitals and surgical specialists means we understand the full scope and complexity offered in the ASC setting.
As a revenue cycle management provider, Trajectory has a proven track record of helping ASCs:
Reduce AR days
Increase percent of charges collected
Increase self-pay collections
A holistic approach to helping your ASC thrive.
Not only do we know the revenue cycle, we actually work in the management space for ASCs allowing us to see the whole picture. Our experience in ASC management affords us the opportunity to help you with case costing, staffing models, case selection and inventory in ways our competitors cannot. It is these value-adds that set our revenue cycle offering apart in the ASC space.
We help to act not only as an extra set of eyes to clean up your AR and drive new cash, but also as a sounding board when there are questions within your practice.
As your revenue cycle services partner, we work to optimize your cash flow through integration of both business office processes and clinical documentation.

Increased Collections Through Quality, Documentation, and a Patient-Specific Approach
As an ASC, one of the primary benefits you offer patients is efficiency. We strive to offer that same efficiency to you in terms of driving prompt payments. We use a multi-pronged, flexible approach to make sure you’re getting paid what you should, when you should. Put our expertise to work to improve your entire AR process.
QA & Denial Prevention
Most denials are due to clerical errors such as lack of authorization, wrong patient ID, wrong provider number, etc. The combination of physician and hospital or clinical billing—using CPT, HCPCS and ICD-10 codes—increases the potential points of error.
We put every claim through a stringent QA process to reduce error rates, decrease denials and days in AR, and improve your collections. Through a standardized process for each common error the human element is all but removed. We hire only experienced staff who will buy into a less than 1% error rate.
These practices have resulted in a reduction in days in AR to a level which consistently grades in the top 10% in the country.
Trajectory utilizes only certified coders based in the United States. We do not ship our coding overseas, nor do we employ 1099 laborers. All of our coding is done by coders fully employed and vested in Trajectory and our clients’ success. This allows our clients to get to know the team working on their project, and the peace of mind that not only is work getting done right, it’s getting done by people they have access to and can discuss issues with.
Whether you require payment in full at the time or service or bill and collect later, we can help you drive prompt and complete payments. We can assist you with payment plans or other financing options for patients.
Our processes lower days in AR, increase self-pay collections, decrease bad debt, and increase patient satisfaction.
