Data have been a game changer. Organizations must know how to appropriately bill and whether that is being done! Learn in this complimentary webinar:
- How to better manage your claims data using measures.
- How to get ahead of the game and think like contractors.
- How to use data to manage and measure risk.
Billing Auditing and Monitoring (A&M) has always been a core component of an effective compliance program and a critical success factor to revenue integrity. However, a change in how claims data can be used for and against you can render current Billing A&M programs stale. If you want to retain what has been billed, you must be able to verify revenue integrity through metrics and measured results. Revenue integrity cannot be managed effectively without well defined metrics, routine versus non-routine approaches, phasing, risk analysis, data querying, and appropriate sampling techniques. These must be put in place as part of your Billing A&M program, or your organization is at risk. This presentation will address:
- Effective Billing A&M in an era of data analysis/mining;
- Keeping up with contractor reform;
- How to effectively use auditing tools to retain earned revenue;
- Strategies that deflect recovery contractors;
- How to use metrics, sampling, and phasing to monitor billing effectively; and
- How auditing and monitoring, using metrics, can assist enormously in defending against demand letters.
