Physician practices are facing unprecedented financial challenges. From shrinking margins and ongoing labor shortages to increasing regulatory requirements and payer denials, achieving and maintaining financial viability is a struggle. Many practices look to cost cutting to make ends meet but, as the saying goes, “You can’t cut your way to profitability.” Amid the common levers of growth, pricing, and productivity, there are other more subtle causes of decreasing profitability that are often overlooked. Coding is one of those areas. The quality of a practice’s revenue cycle is closely aligned with the quality of its coding. In this 60-minute webinar, attendees will learn how to identify poor quality coding practices and the most common coding issues, ways to manage greater coding complexities within specialty practices and proactive steps to build coding quality.
This 60-minute webinar will provide you with the knowledge to:
- Discover areas of poor quality coding that often lead to increased denials, poor cash flow, delayed reimbursement, “takebacks” and penalties
- Use internal quality audits, E/M utilization reviews and clinical documentation improvement to boost coding quality
- Manage intensive coding training and revenue cycle outsourcing as options to improve coding
