What is maxRVU?
maxRVU is a powerful charge capture and rounding solution that allows physicians to document their charges while also helping hospitals improve their financial health and streamline operations.
What is charge capture and is it necessary for any medical provider to use it?
Our charge capture application tracks and monitors patient encounters at the point of care. Instead of missing payments from cross-covered services, you can communicate with your team, on one platform. All of the current medical codes are in our software, so sending approved charges to billers for insurance payments are no longer a delayed process. Our providers love it, and you will too.
