The charge capture rate is a metric used to measure the percentage of services or procedures provided by healthcare professionals that are accurately captured and billed. It represents the effectiveness of the charge capture process in capturing and documenting billable services. A higher charge capture rate indicates a more accurate and efficient billing process, while a lower rate may suggest potential revenue loss or missed billing opportunities. Automation in charge capture can help improve the charge capture rate by reducing manual errors, accelerating documentation, and enhancing overall accuracy in the billing process.
