Regulatory Compliance Training Providers & Your Office Staff

Regulatory Compliance Training & Why You Might Need It

Professional training & certification amidst the constantly changing regulations surrounding the healthcare industry can be difficult while taking valuable time away from running your practice. Going through the repeated audit of your claims and appeal process for denied claims can quickly get frustrating while trying to spend time tending to your business. On a daily basis, you have high priority issues relating the patient care and can quickly distract from the positive impact you can make through effective policies having to do with your financial health.

This is where iHealthOne comes in and makes that impact for you at a fraction of the time and resources you’d have to commit to it on your own. Our Regulatory compliance & MACRA geared programs are some of the very best in the industry of healthcare compliance consulting. Partnering with a healthcare compliance consulting company has never been easier than it is right now. Our dedicated team of over thirty consultants has developed a streamlined approach to office staff and physician training while considering the specific needs of your practice.

Many providers are unaware of grants and funding available to them. These funds exist to cover expenses associated with updating patient records or crucial office training so this is one area we work with you on first. We like to say this is the extra special part of working with us that makes our relationship profitable for both of us in the immediate short term. (Usually within a 4 to 6 week period for most clients.)

While working with your office staff and identifying what your specific needs or regulatory demands are quickly this is an area we make a major positive impact on your day to day operations. Using techniques like more accurate coding of patient records can help reduce the number of denied claims while also eliminating the liability associated with not being compliant. We have very tangible ways of reporting the difference that our techniques have made on thousands of doctor’s and dentist’s offices across the United States. Our team of industry leading consultants and training staff develop your customized plan while utilizing the most current information available as it relates to the medical field.

Regulatory Compliance Services

Some of the popular areas we help our clients with are:

Coding Audits & Training –
Making sure that accurate codes will be billed, we work hand in hand with your physicians and office staff which will bring in higher reimbursements, show the medical necessity, and lower the risk of non-compliance.

Chart Compliance Audits –
By increasing the code accuracy on patient charts, you can increase your efficiency as a provider selecting CPT®, ICD-9-CM and HCPCS II Codes. We run a full audit on a section of time of your charts to get an idea where your most problematic issues reside.

HIPPA SECURITY AUDITS & OSHA
We cover important areas including gap analysis and plan development to deal with both current and future demands in these areas.

Comprehensive Practice Audit & Analysis –
Diving into multiple areas of your practice we can reclaim lost revenues by providing clarity of what services you can bill and receive revenue for. Tackling the most complex specialty practices out there we have been able to make some amazing impacts in this area of what we do.

So Why Choose iHealthOne?

We Consistently Save Your Practice Time & Money While Avoiding Complex Complications That Can Arise When Doing It Yourself.
We have many areas of specialties within our business here at iHealthOne. We wouldn’t ask our content writer for example to read through a new grant and it’s set of guidelines to prepare our strategy of receiving the best results for our client’s practices. In this same manner, we’ve found that many great doctors aren’t that great at paperwork or the monotonous task of researching new compliance regulations. We like to say we’re like having a consultant in your back pocket, use as much or as little as you need each month. This will free up valuable time you can spend on doing what you do best while we do what we do best. This is a team effort and we don’t mind putting in the long hours of research needed to do the best job possible.

One of the best parts about working with us is that your first consultation with a consultant here is totally free. We will do an in-depth analysis of what your exact needs are. We are all about that initial discovery to make certain we are both a great fit for each other. Give us a call today for your first consultation at (888) 893-4495
