Don’t Miss These Sessions:

Winning appeals and reducing denials by integrating authorization data

presented by Lowell General Hospital

This session will describe a robust denial prevention strategy at Lowell General Hospital that has significantly improved the hospital’s net reimbursement. The process integrates patient authorization data to Cerner for use in preventing denials and winning appeals. Lowell General initiated changes after facing challenges with denials, patient dissatisfaction and referring provider disenfranchisement. Efforts focused on documenting and integrating insurance authorization data, such as voice, fax and electronic, to defend reimbursement in payer audits and appeals. Outcomes include reduced inpatient notification and precertification denials, reduced A/R days, improved customer service and streamlined workflow.

Preventing denials using proactive reporting

presented by Beebe Healthcare

Preventing and avoiding denials are a major challenge for health care systems worldwide. Millions of dollars in denied payments are forfeited annually due to any number of costly errors or omissions of critical information. At Beebe Medical Center, a focused team of patient access and IT individuals was assembled to address denials. Initially focusing on Missing Referrals and Incomplete Authorizations, an additional $1,000,000+ in payments was received by the hospital within 18 months of inception of this team, which would have otherwise been denied and written off. This accomplishment was made possible by utilizing proactive adhoc reporting, advanced knowledge of payer rules/requirements and precise account reconciliation.

Improving the patient experience through centralized financial clearance

presented by Johns Hopkins All Children’s Hospital

During this panel, we will discuss how Johns Hopkins All Children’s Hospital centralized financial clearance activities, resulting in reduced denials, increased pre-service collections, and improvement of the consumer’s understanding of their financial responsibility prior to service provision. Centralization included development of a training curriculum that introduced the five pillars of financial clearance and standardization pertaining to the financial conversation. We will also review how worklists in Cerner Access Management Office were created and utilized to provide a standard work driver for the Financial Clearance department. A Cerner subject matter expert will then provide an update on Cerner’s Financial Clearance offerings, new capabilities and best practices.
