Mid-Revenue Cycle Optimization to Drive Margin Improvements

Clinical Documentation Review

Does your provider documentation reflect the complete picture of your patients' care? Our RCM specialists will ensure your medical charts support your reporting. We'll also review documentation for opportunities to capture the full extent of your case mix index, E/M levels, and risk adjustment scores.

Medical Coding Audit

Claims not meeting medical necessity and payer compliance requirements lead to denied payment. Our RCM specialists will identify missed revenue opportunities and resolve root causes likely to invite external audits and paybacks.

Claim Edit Audit

Successfully working claim edits will save your organization the cost of working denials. Our claim edit audits examine worked edits to validate or correct how they were handled. And when edits are denied, we review with billing staff and teach the medical biller how to appeal.

Claim Edit Support

We provide claim edit services to support coding and billing staff during system conversions or to address backlogs post-conversion. We'll scrub procedure and diagnosis codes against NCCI and payer-specific edits to ensure claims receive prompt and optimal pay.

Utilization Review

To safeguard against liabilities that include paybacks, allegations of fraud under the FCA, being placed on pre-payment review, and exclusions from program participation, we review your high-cost procedure claims to ensure utilization rates are on par with your peers.

Charge Entry and Billing

Delayed claims mean delayed pay, yet charge lag commonly extends accounts receivable cycles by 10%. We'll decrease your days outstanding by troubleshooting inefficiencies responsible for both charge lag and claims lag.

Charge Capture Review

Our charge capture reviews confirm that charges and receipts aren't missed when reconciling patient charges across the care continuum. In addition to addressing breakdowns in the charge capture process, we identify opportunities for process improvements.

Charge Description Master

Our charge description master (CDM) maintenance can potentially save your organization thousands of dollars. We'll review your CDM and upkeep processes to ensure current data facilitates financial forecasting and equitable pay.
