Scope of coverage

This resource provides the ability to accurately track the different payment and adjustment transactions toward balances on an account.

RIM scope

Resource appropriateness

Tracking financial information is vital in Patient Accounting and Patient Administration systems in many Healthcare Organizations. This resource provides the ability to accurately track the different payments and adjustments toward balances on the account. ChargeItems (can) result in an increase in the balance on an Account. We now need a method to pay down that balance (i.e. post payments).

Expected implementations

  • Any solution that tracks financial accounting, payment, and billing information
  • Patient apps that support self-pay payments
  • Patient apps that show how a current balance was calculated
  • Interested parties: Cerner, payment processors, healthcare providers, healthcare systems.
