Improved claim accuracy project created a hold queue of the most common coding errors. The hold queue allows the codes to be corrected before they are sent to insurance. This project reduced the volume of claim denials and currently allows $450K in claims being reviewed for accuracy each month. Coding and financial analysis project revealed coding errors and missing use of a common coding modifier
(25). Through this project I was able to reduce fee-for-service denials of office visits and increase revenue by $691k per year.
Revenue Cycle Analysis Project for a rural hospital and healthcare system. As part of the analysis I interviewed staff members at six different loca ons.
