The farther back in the revenue cycle issues occur, the harder and more expensive it is to fix. Physician practices don’t always have the time or the resources to continually improve processes and proactively train. This interactive session will talk about the issues and the advantages of getting things right the first time with tips on how to integrate quick training into your every day workflow.
This session will talk about
- Where the issues with denials start
- How the issues can be mitigated and processes improved
- Define the help and training a clinic needs
- Measure the cost and return
