Why ENT Practices Should Provide Training for In-House Staff

It is the responsibility of each medical professional to keep up with his or her training and certification to do their job effectively at the highest level of success. This is not just a smart business practice or an industry requirement, but in some cases, it is also a government-regulated rule. However, beyond the necessary certification and licensing that is required for those who work in the healthcare industry, additional training is often needed to ensure quality ENT billing training and support. The healthcare industry has undergone drastic changes in recent years, due in part to the ICD-9 to ICD-10 migration and regulations under the Affordable Care Act (ACA). Busy practices and clinics need to stay on top of medical billing services through support by offside CPA audits, counseling from a professional healthcare consultant, and ongoing training services.

What Type of Training is Needed?

Hopefully, you have thoroughly vetted your new hires before bringing them into your office to ensure that they are properly educated and certified in the area in which they have been hired to work. However, beyond checking resumes and references, there are additional training measures that should be provided. Existing employees should also receive ongoing training to ensure that everyone is on the same page. Medical billing services, patient services, and other administrative work is instrumental to the continuing success of any practice or clinic and should not be overlooked.

Some of the areas of training that should be included are:

  • increasing efficiency and productivity
  • improving patient services
  • managing expectations for customer service
  • understanding every step of patient care from appointment setting to billing and collections
