Help for Busy ENT Practices: Healthcare Consulting Companies

Some days it feels as though there just aren’t enough hours in the day to get everything done. Today’s medical practices, even specialists in suburban areas, are busier now than ever before due to increased requirements for compliance in medical billing and coding. Without a plan or a system in place for your Ear Nose and Throat practice or clinic, it would be nearly impossible to stay on top of all the day-to-day tasks that are required to remain compliant with the current Medicaid and Medicare Reimbursement program. Healthcare consulting companies can help busy ENT practices to remain focused on providing care for patients instead of worrying about their medical billing system.

A Professional Assessment
It all starts with a professional assessment of your current way of doing things. This part of the process will determine whether you just need a little bit of assistance or a lot of help in getting back on track. Our team of highly trained and experienced consultants will perform an assessment on everything from basic account management to medical billing systems, employee performances and track record of Medicaid and Medicare reimbursement. If you receive a lot of rejected or denied claims, that can be an indication that online coding help and support will be required. Once the issues are identified, we will work with your team to help overcome obstacles that prevent your office from running effectively and efficiently.

For some offices, the problems faced are only due to the new changes made to the healthcare industry, specifically medical billing and coding. Many of the newly imposed federal regulations have caused issues with account management, resulting in delays of payment and outright denials of claims. Healthcare consulting companies like MD Pro Solutions can help you and your staff to get the education and training updates that are required to properly navigate these changes, as well as the online coding help they will need for ongoing success. Because we specialize in ENT offices and practices, the assistance that we provide is specifically targeted to you, your needs, and your medical billing system.

Outsourcing Options
If your office is just completely overwhelmed and you need to take a “time out” to get back on track, you can make use of our outsourcing solutions on a temporary basis. Unlike other outsourcing services, we do not require you to switch from your medical billing system to another software program. We work with you and your existing software to ensure that your transition back to taking care of processing claims in-house is a smooth one. Our team of professional and experienced instructors and support staff will also work with your staff to improve their ability to accurately and timely submit claims to help you save time and money while providing quality care and attention to your patients.

Outsourcing can be provided while your staff is being trained, while they are transitioning from training back to in-house services, or for a longer period of time, depending on your needs. Some practices may prefer to continue outsourced services, as they can free up valuable staff to take care of other things in the office or eliminate overhead costs associated with the upkeep of computers and medical billing system software updates. Whatever your preferences, MD Pro Solutions will help you find the best way to achieve your goals while maintaining control over your account management.

Other services available in addition to consultation and training include:

  • a complete analysis and update of all medical billing codes
  • review of all forms that are being used
  • review of all billing program and medical billing systems
  • fraud prevention measures via offside audits performed by a CPA
  • scheduled reviews for continued management and improvement
  • front office staff training to streamline the patient billing process
