Running a medical practice can be a lot of work. Fortunately there are professional solutions that can help you to improve everything from your ENT account management to performing offside CPA audits to ensure that everything is being done properly. Believe it or not, third-party auditing and reporting services can be a medical office manager’s best friend. Whether you need to get training for your staff on ENT billing and coding or if you just want to make sure that you are providing quality services to your patients, MD Pro Solutions can help.
Hiring a service to help you with a professional consultation and evaluation of the billing and management of your ENT practice can be very beneficial. In fact, an audit can help you identify what has been done, what you and your employees are doing now, and reveal what you can do to make it better. Even if you get high marks for patient satisfaction, you can always find something to help you do it better.
In the simplest of terms, a chart audit is a professional examination of your practice’s medical records. It can be done electronically or via hard copy review. Offside CPA audits, chart audits and surgical chart audits are conducted to take the virtual temperature of your ENT account management department through auditing and reporting services, to ensure that you are providing the very best of care and service to your patients.
Not only is it a good idea to do chart audits, but they are actually required by the healthcare industry to measure the quality of care. Conducting your own auditing ahead of time can help you to see what improvements need to be made throughout the year. Official audits are used and reported to the federal government to help measure compliance with industry standards. A chart audit can be conducted on any aspect of healthcare, including surgical chart audits, offside CPA audits and, of course, basic chart audits.
FEE SCHEDULE REVIEW
Another common review that is done to help improve ENT account management as part of a larger auditing and reporting services, is the fee schedule review. A fee schedule is the list that is used to specify the maximum payment amounts for the patient’s insurance plan for specific services and supplies that are used during treatment. Practices that are a preferred provider agree to accept these terms and not charge fees above the agreed upon amount. An annual fee schedule review is used to ensure that ENT billing and coding is done properly to avoid costly mistakes or fraud by preferred providers.
