Efficient Authorization
We fully understand the urgency in receiving authorization quickly for your patients. To that end, our utilization review team maintains clear and open lines of communication with your team to ensure that you are updated at every stage. As soon as your patients receive authorization, our team wastes no time in informing you of the extent of the authorization so that care can begin immediately.
Documentation Review
The most important tool in securing optimum care authorization for your patients is proper documentation. In the busy world of patient care, with so many people potentially involved in documenting the processes used and decisions made, it is easy for things to slip through the cracks. To avoid issues, our utilization team provides documentation review services to ensure that claims are not denied and your patients get the care they deserve.
Training
While our utilization team does everything in its power to protect against denied claims, things can still slip through the cracks. One of the most effective ways to ensure claims are accepted is to correct issues at their source. As your partners in patient advocacy, we also provide training to your clinicians and staff to make them aware of ever changing compliance guidelines and give them the tools to produce effective authorization claims from the ground up.
