If you are wishing cash flow would pick up faster during the pandemic, this BIG Idea podcast might help. You may be familiar with claim scrubbers, tools that review claims for common errors before submitting the claim. If you have access to your practice management data, build a custom claim scrubber that can capture far more issues specific to your practice and your payers than a canned claim scrubber can catch. Train your staff so that every time you see a denial, look for ways to capture that information before the claim goes out. Scrubbing claims can speed up your revenue cycle considerably and reduce your staff’s workload. Once your claim scrubber is working, continue to add rules to reduce denials further. Listen for more ideas on working up the revenue cycle stream to trap and fix errors even earlier. I hope these podcasts are helpful for you.
