Webinar Replay - Using Tracking and Analysis to Improve Compliance and Reimbursement Outcomes

Event Date: 

Thursday, October 27, 2016

This webcast will demonstrate how your facility will benefit from the value of an end-to-end claims audit tracking and analysis systems. You will learn how such a system can increase your facility's compliance while reducing errors, and — most importantly — allow your hospital to protect its reimbursements. And now during this current period of reduced auditing activity by recovery auditors (RAs) and other external auditors, you can improve your audit management activities while benefitting from a new tracking system — one that will identify process and program improvement before the RAs return to audit Medicare claims.
