Operations Process Consulting
HPS offers several clinical and operations consulting services that will maximize productivity, and optimize your agency’s overall operations.
Operations Process Reviews
The HPS operations process consulting will evaluate all operations processes from intake through and including clearing claims to the revenue cycle department to bill. These reviews typically identify internal control weaknesses, inefficiencies in processes and missing compliance procedures. We can also provide an assessment of your current staffing levels based on your revenue volume. The review will include interviews and observation of key individuals involved in the day to day processes.
Recommendations will be made regarding job descriptions, current duties, documentation flow, tracking mechanisms, and overall organizational structure.
These process reviews typically are performed in conjunction with a billing and collection process review to ascertain that claims released to the revenue cycle department are getting billed and collected in a timely manner. The back office functions typically reviewed are auditing, billing, collections, and cash posting.
