Hospitals and Healthcare Systems
Dixon Hughes Goodman’ Revenue Integrity Solutions team is a dedicated group of experienced professionals who are well versed in the intricacies of healthcare organizations.
Whether your facility is a hospital, physician office, home health agency or ambulatory surgery center, we can provide the knowledge and support needed to measure and sustain results.
A facility’s bottom line can be impacted with each new admission. Each attempt to
collect from patients results in either improved or declining overall financial health. From the first contact to the final wrap-ups, every step in the revenue cycle is crucial to the well-being of your facility. A Dixon Hughes Goodman Comprehensive Revenue Cycle Assessment can identify the inefficiencies in the processes and point the way to real solutions.
Our revenue cycle management services involve a redesign process that streamlines business processes, develops communication or information-sharing loops, and
eliminates complex manual functions. Understanding that the future success of healthcare is customer satisfaction-driven, a major part of the redesign effort is focused on improving service to revenue cycle customers and the creation of real solutions for revenue cycle improvement.
The accuracy and timely management of the charge description master (CDM) impacts the revenue cycle, compliance, and customer satisfaction. Our experienced professionals can provide a comprehensive or focused review of the CDM that can result in solutions that can improve your operations, planning and revenue cycle.
Our Quality Documentation Program (QDP) targets the disconnect between clinical staff, who document for peer communication, and HIM personnel, who review documentation content for code selection. It helps ensure appropriate reimbursement through compliant, complete physician documentation and accurate ICD-9-CM code and DRG assignment. With a stronger Case Mix Index (CMI), increased reimbursement and
enhanced interaction between physicians and coding professionals, your facility has the ability not only to recognize opportunities for growth, but also put real solutions in place.
Our Clinical Coding Assessments are designed to assess the efficiency and effectiveness of current coding programs. Our professionals provide customized solutions to better the performance and accuracy of workflow processes and clinical data.
CMS recently announced the expansion strategy of the Recovery Audit Contractors (RAC) program. Extensive expansion is targeted for calendar year 2009. Dixon Hughes Goodman can tailor a Management Action Plan that addresses the operations and planning necessary to meet the challenges the RAC claim reviews create. Our solutions are designed to match each facility’s unique need.
