Mining Value in Healthcare: Tying Together Physician and Hospital Data – Leading health systems continue to benefit from advanced revenue integrity solutions that leverage data mining and predictive analytics. Yet even these cutting edge organizations are realizing there’s a gap – and that there’s more value to be extracted by the tying together of hospital and physician data. Effectively bringing together these two distinct classes of financial data can deliver more holistic revenue integrity for the entire health system, while also enhancing physician satisfaction and ensuring accurate charge and cost reporting for MACRA and similar benchmark-based industry initiatives. Join them to learn how your health system can avoid: missed charges on the hospital and the practice side of the house; undercoding of professional claims, or improperly assigned codes that ultimately negatively impact reimbursement and/or payer-based incentives/bonuses; overlapping/duplicative professional and institutional charges, creating audit risk.

Join industry leader Justin Barnes, HITECH Answers and HealthcareNOWradio to learn how to minimize risk, increase revenue as well as profitability and truly control your own destiny in a fluctuating period of healthcare.
