Comprehensive Record-Keeping Training for Busy ENT Practices

Does it ever feel as though you just don’t have enough time in a day to take care of the essential tasks for your ENT practice? What with all the recent changes to the healthcare industry as a whole, including the Affordable Care Act (ACA) and the ICD-10 changes, even the most simple medical billing system can feel overrun and overtaxed by all of the extra things that need to be done just to submit a single claim. By working with healthcare consulting services, even the busiest practices can make improvements to their daily activities, increasing awareness of the importance of comprehensive record-keeping and consistency, it is possible to achieve monthly, quarterly, and annual collection goals.

Why Ongoing Training Matters
While many practices were able to “bounce back” from the recent changes and maintain a regular pattern of claims submissions and accounts receivables collections, it is important to realize that changes will continue to occur in the coming years. Ongoing training is key to the continued success of your ENT practice or clinic. Making sure that your staff is aware of how the current medical billing system works and is up on the latest coding requirements is part of the job. If you are concerned that your staff may not be fully trained on all the latest ENT billing and coding skills or if you have noticed that their comprehensive record-keeping skills are not where they should be, professional healthcare consulting services can help.

It is important to have a well-planned and executed system in place that will help you to keep it all under control. If your office is still struggling with the ICD-10 changes or is having trouble keeping up with the ACA and updated HIPAA requirements, you should definitely consider hiring a pro. In some cases, just some minor training is required to get everyone back on track. However, there are other situations where training might not be enough. Outsourcing ENT billing and coding services can be a great way to get your medical billing system and department back on schedule while you continue to train and assess your current in-house staff. Outsourced services can be temporary during training or long-term, depending on the results of your assessment and your financial needs.
