Learn the 3 study types that may account for up to 80% of radiology claim denials

Claim denials drive up the cost of healthcare and divert resources from the primary goal of delivering quality patient care. When it comes to radiology services, the vast majority of claim denials can be attributed to insufficient documentation of medical necessity for three types of studies.

 

What everyone needs to know to ensure we all get paid

Claims management is essential to patient care. If a facility is not properly reimbursed for medical services rendered, patient care will ultimately be compromised.

How credentialing processes must evolve in the age of telemedicine

Hospitals and clinics are integrating more tele-services into their everyday protocols as the telemedicine model continues to demonstrate the potential for them to deliver better, more cost-effective care. However, while new protocols for providing quality care are rapidly evolving, many organizations continue to follow internal credentialing bylaws and standards developed to support a dated paradigm.

How medical staff offices benefit from telehealth credentialing agreements

Patient safety is the name of the game in credentialing. It is a process essential to ensuring quality care. However, the traditional primary source verification (PSV) approach to credentialing is antiquated in the age of telemedicine.

Blending Technology Innovations and Clinical Services | Why I joined MEDNAX Radiology Solutions

As the CIO of Radiology at MEDNAX and vRad, I cannot help but reflect on the history of imaging informatics – and look ahead to the future innovations that emerging technology will bring.

Imaging Essential to Certification for Successful Stroke Centers

Radiologists must design protocols that enable clinical partners to achieve stroke certification. Medicine is at the forefront of a revolution in stroke diagnosis and treatment, as my colleague Dr. Dym elucidated in 2018

Want to get paid under AUC? A qualified CDSM may be your best insurance.

Effective collaboration with your referring physicians can make the difference between getting paid or not getting paid. Cooperation between referring and ordering professionals becomes increasingly important with the approaching implementation date for the Protecting Access to Medicare Act, on January 1, 2020. 

Radiology Insight Essential to Precision Medicine, Excellence

Today we have the capability—unparalleled in human history—to compile enormous amounts of information, then apply sophisticated analytic tools and artificial intelligence to help solve patients’ most vexing difficulties. Managing big data is essential to building specialized centers of excellence, and diagnostic imaging is a vital part of their success.

Why The Optimal Radiology Study Requires Patient-Centered Imaging

Patient expectations have changed. Rising healthcare costs are driving patients to demand more information when confronted with a medical issue, and technology is empowering them with access to that information. Today, radiologists are much more likely to interact directly with patients, where previously clinicians mediated imaging reports.
