Evaluation and Management Coding Assistance Services

Improve your coding processes to protect your bottom line

New Evaluation and Management (E/M) code changes went into effect on Jan. 1, 2021. Is your practice coding correctly? Errors can lower your reimbursements and may even lead to a Medicare audit. Our business optimization consultants can train your staff to document and code E/M correctly in your practice management system, so you are reimbursed properly for the services you provide.

Remote Revenue Cycle Management Review for Unlimited Systems

Don’t let billing and coding errors impact your bottom line

Outdated processes lead to unpaid claims, which is money your practice needs to deliver quality patient care. Optimize your revenue cycle to maximize efficiencies and increase reimbursements. Our team of experts will work with your team remotely and securely to analyze denial trends, review accounts receivables, and assess systems and processes for those practices on G4 – all of which can drive efficiencies and automation within your practice.

Building a strategic plan for your practice

Our two-tiered approach to enhancing business performance begins with the assessment phase, where we gather data to paint a picture of the current state of your practice. From there, we work with your team to develop a comprehensive plan of action while implementing recommendations along the way.

Assessment

In order to understand what's working and where there are areas for improvement, our team will build a robust knowledge of your practice through interviews and small group sessions. These activities help us identify areas of risk and opportunities for efficiency. We then compare your business operations with current proven best practices collected from specialty practices across the nation. This allows us to develop a list of achievable improvement methodologies that can be implemented within your practice.

Implementation

Once we have completed your practice assessment, we will work with your team to share our findings and look at areas where you may be able to impact revenue. This includes confirming your strengths and laying out a plan of action for continued improvement. Our report will detail the anticipated financial and operational impact of the recommended solutions. This acts as a guide for implementing the insights from your Practice 360° Consulting Service to put our assessment recommendations into action.

Every specialty medical practice faces the challenge of managing demands. In order to help close the gap on those demands—like access to care, patient engagement and advance care planning—you may want to consider an Advanced Practice Provider (APP) model. IPN Solutions' clinical consulting team can help with the development, implementation and optimization of an APP program to help balance the needs for physician time while providing patient-centered care.

Using an ROI tool, our team can help prioritize which APP-led services you offer. From there, we can assist in facilitating guidelines for managing an ongoing APP program and assist in evaluating additional provider needs.
