Adoption of Healthcare-RCM services to Account for over Half of Global Revenues
The report projects that services facilitating revenue cycle management for healthcare settings will be in great demand in the foreseeable future. In 2017, over half of revenues procured in the global healthcare revenue cycle management software market will be accounted by services.
