Charge Integrity Solutions
Vitalware charge integrity solutions and services help revenue professionals put a stop to revenue leakage from undercharging, and also helps reduce both lost time and revenue from overcharging and denied claims. Our solutions and consulting services enable clients to track errors to their root cause, and quickly gain self-sufficiency.
Vitalware Revenue Integrity Solutions
Revenue professionals know that hospitals leave between 0.5% and 3% of net revenue on the table due to a variety of factors: changes in billing practices; installing new technologies; gaps in staff-training, and charging practices that become obsolete through complacency. If you've been submitting claims with improper charges, it's probably costing you more than you think — and the sooner you take corrective action, the better.
All Vitalware revenue integrity tools leverage a rule set that reaches beyond typical industry charge-integrity tools. Our capabilities apply to both inpatient and outpatient accounts and probe deeper and wider to identify opportunities for improved revenue and compliance. Our clients see more and therefore have the ability to take more accurate and enduring remedial actions. The Vitalware rule-set is also enriched on a continual basis with the most recent coding and billing regulations, so your revenue integrity analysis is always both comprehensive and current.
Two Levels of Response
To fully optimize the value we offer, we help clients meter and strategically deploy their investments by offering two distinct levels of inquiry and response: Assessment and Analysis, and Integrity. Both offerings provide a smooth escalation of information richness and actionable insight, helping clients confidently take next steps, and realize enduring returns as they scale the effort. Our approach is founded on the idea that our clients will want to deploy their time and resources as efficiently as possible.
Know Where You Stand With VitalAssessment and VitalAnalysis
VitalAssessment provides a quick snapshot that identifies charging issues and trends at a high level. This 30,000-foot view lets providers know if they have significant charging issues and guides revenue personnel to areas where further exploration may yield important insights.
VitalAssessment works with a review of a short period of outpatient Medicare claims from the Standard Analytical File (1-3 months) compared against our rules. A Vitalware product specialist reviews the data and creates a client-facing report.
For teams who need fast, broad-spectrum feedback on potential charge and compliance issues, VitalAssessment can provide the diagnostic insight required to determine if further investigation is warranted, and guide that next-level work to optimal results.
With VitalAssessment providing insight into major areas of opportunity, VitalAnalysis provides a closer look at both charge and compliance opportunities, with processing of outpatient 837i claims against our standard-setting Vitalware rules repository. Results are available for review in a secure user interface, and our team helps get (and keep) you up on the right track by refining and customizing rules to meet your needs. With VitalAnalysis, you can thoroughly analyze the root causes of missed charges, billing errors, and potential compliance issues.
VitalAnalysis offers clients the capability to quickly identify and fully remediate current and chronic sources of lost revenue. Vitalware's rich rule set helps clients take actions that provide enduring value, and can dramatically reduce wasteful rework.
