Powerful Tools and Reporting: The Lifeline of Every Practice

Management tools provide a detailed picture of the accounts receivable (A/R) for your practice. The report reflects A/R balance at the beginning of the reporting period, plus new charges during the same period, minus payments and contractual adjustments providing A/R ending balance. This tool provides a trend of the practice health and maintains a close monitoring of collections, the lifeline of every practice.

Tracking and management of denied claims helps uncover deficiencies in coding and billing practices. Denial management is used as a tool for the provider or office staff to address coding and billing errors and inconsistencies up-front, instead of correcting a denied claim. Clean claims translate to quicker, more complete payments and an improved bottom line.

The reporting package is developed and customized for each practice, based on the requirements and objectives of the physician(s) and administrative staff. Once in place, the system emails periodic reports to the appropriate recipients, including practitioners, administrative staff and any outside parties such as the practice accountant.

Additionally, we routinely schedule monthly meeting with practitioner and administrative staff. These meetings are tailored to meet each practice need. Frequency is determined by the practice.
