Here is the sentence I am trying to improve:

"How building a culture of Quality results in better care and the highest possible reimbursement revenue."

Seems clunky but I'm a bit stuck. Suggestions?

  • It's not a sentence yet. You probably need to add more information to give us a more complete idea of what you want to say. Is this the title of an article? Jul 15 '15 at 13:54
  • There probably are some different ways to phrase it, but how can we objectively know if those ways are "better"?

  • This is a bullet point in a list of what will be discussed in a webinar. Jul 15 '15 at 15:23
  • To start with, you might want to replace "highest possible" with "highest" (or "greatest" or whatever). The impossible cases can usually be excluded as uninteresting to consider.

... and maximizes reimbursement revenue.

make as large or great as possible.
"the company was aiming to maximize profits"

Here I'm not just substituting for "the highest possible" (i.e. an adjective), I'm substituting for "results in the highest possible" (i.e. a verb).


Sounds like maximal

Of or constituting a maximum; the highest or greatest possible: the maximal speed

Oxford Dictionaries Online

You could say How building a culture of Quality results in better care and maximal reimbursement revenue.


How about the utmost reimbursement revenue.

Utmost: Of the highest or greatest degree, amount, or intensity; most extreme: a matter of the utmost importance.



Acme which means the highest point of something. It's usually used to refer to metaphorical heights rather than literal ones, for example on dictionary.com:

The empire was at the acme of its power.

or on Merriam-Webster.com:

His fame was at its acme.

So you'd be looking at "How building a culture of Quality results in better care and the acme of reimbursement revenue."

  • I believe this is the wrong part of speech for the job. This sentence, more than likely, needs an adjective. Acme is a noun.
