    Introduction

    From bottom to top is a recollection of an account as to how healthcare organizations
    may undertake in enlarging the collections gathered upfront from patients that pay for
    themselves. The account is from California's Sutter Health which achieved this objective.
    Among the strategies relied on by California's Sutter Health in a bid, to, ameliorate and increase
    on its margins is to while health plans are comprised of the high deductible as well as
    copayments is to ascertain that cash can be collected more from patients such as the self-pay
    patients. Americans have adequate resources to pay for healthcare.
    Nonetheless, in some cases, it may require that these individuals are asked to pay for the
    care they receive. To appeal to these individuals it may require that the PFS staff have access to
    data that is timely, complete and accurate aligned with the right skills in a bid to influence these
    individuals to pay for the healthcare they receive. In doing so, the organization is able to collect
    monies and increase revenues significantly. It was imperative to make changes from the
    traditional system and transition to front-end from the back end in a bid to influence success.

    held by many people is that the Americans are probably incapable catering to their health due to
    the lack of insurance owing to the fact that they cannot afford it.
    Rather, in truth, 80 percent or more of these individuals actually hail from middle-class
    families and as such have adequate resources to pay for healthcare. Moreover, in some cases, it
    may require that these individuals are asked to pay for the care they receive. To appeal to these
    individuals it may require that a patient financial services staff member impose the question to
    the individual in a polite manner and in a way that prompts positive feedback from the
    individuals (Souza, & McCarty, 2007). To do so, the PFS staff may need to have access to data
