What is a Collections to Charge Rate Dashboard?
Collections to Charge Rate Dashboards are considered billing process and collection optimization analysis tools and are used by CFOs and collections managers to analyze the rate at which the organization is able to collect versus how much it charges. Some of the main functionality in this type of dashboard is that it provides analysis from three perspectives: 1) Collection to charge rate per individual biller, 2) Collection to charge rate by insurance company (payor), 3) Collection to charge rate by patient (using patient number). The user can choose month and year filter from the drop down boxes on the top of the screen. You find an example of this type of dashboard below.
Purpose of Collections to Charge Rate Dashboards

When used as part of good business practices in Financial Planning & Analysis (FP&A) and collections departments, an organization can improve its revenues and related cash flow, and it can reduce the chances that elements of pricing, billing, charging or collections processes are not overhauled when systemic problems are discovered.
