11:00 – 12:00 – New Paradigm: Managing and Preventing Denials in a Clinically-Driven Revenue Cycle
Technological advances and imperatives for greater efficiency are driving the health care revenue cycle evolution. With the continual advancement of technology, providers need to look to restructure their process and tools to succeed. Clearly defining the procedure with a solution will help in leveraging what is now happening across the health care continuum – in particular the areas where clinical care is provided and clinical activities seamlessly generate charges. Denials prevention is currently the biggest challenge within this new clinically-driven revenue cycle management and can be prevented using a holistic revenue cycle approach with a denials management program. This presentation will review the components needed for a successful denials management program including: charge capture, defending payor audits, denials prevention, denials committee/tasks force, and tracking and trending success.
