A strong foundation for the correct charge capture
High operating costs and shrinking reimbursements pose a huge challenge to those who manage the hospital emergency departments revenue cycle. So, how is it that EDs are missing significant revenue opportunities? In a word, disconnects. There are many components in the ED revenue cycle, from ED coders and HIM departments to the chargemaster and automated coding systems. A disconnect at any point can result in under-payment or regulatory noncompliance and the potential for auditor action. This MedLearn Publishing webcast will reveal where and why the disconnects are occurring, and it will walk you through the establishment of sound coding, charging, and billing processes. Highlights:
- Revenue and compliance risk factors that should prompt you to analyze and consider updating your ED coding, charging, and billing processes
- A review of the key elements you need to consider in your analysis and action plan, including financial objectives, regulatory compliance, and workflow efficiencies
- Should you consolidate your coding and charging functions? A look at why hospitals are moving in this direction and insights on how it could work in your facility
- Best practices from Panacea Healthcare Solution's consulting work, to reinforce best practices in revenue cycle processes
