Comprehensive Practice Management (CPM) is pleased to offer physician practices the following medical practice support services.
Medical billing is the foundation and financial lifeline of a physician office. If your billing is not processed in a diligent manner, the impact can be disastrous. At CPM, our billing business has grown steadily over the years due to our unique approach to implementing processes that minimally impact your office. Our employees are constantly updated regarding the latest coding practices and the latest rules for the payers. In turn the employees spread this knowledge to our clients to ensure that providers are maximizing their reimbursements. CPM offers various types of billing arrangements spanning from the traditional outsourcing of the billing function to a practice’s ability to maintain the billing processes “in-house” with the practice no longer having the burden of HIPAA compliance, software updating and claims transmission. Our Medical Billing Specialists can assist your office on a multitude of software platforms including: Intergy by Greenway, eClinicalWorks (eCW), Athena, Epic and Medical Manager.
Electronic Health Record and MIPS Reporting
CPM offers our clients access to the electronic health record (EHR) module available through our software carrier, Intergy by Greenway. Intergy’s powerful clinical, financial and analytics technology with customizable features allows providers and administrators the ability to document, bill and report data in a way that works best for each practice. Our implementation team will assist your practice with implementation, customization and training and will provide ongoing support for training, data migration and will assist your practice with MIPS reporting.
Traditionally the vendors used by physician practices have been reluctant to award discounted rates to the smaller physician groups. This is why CPM has partnered with vendors in over 40 categories to provide discounted rates to physician practices. For some vendors, these discounts reach as high as 50% off the list price. Vendor categories range from answering services and medical supplies to payroll and transcription services.
CPM assists providers who are interested in starting a new clinical program or purchasing a new piece of equipment, both requiring an initial capital investment. CPM can evaluate the market, payer reimbursement rates and other areas to determine the programs profitability threshold.
Human Resource (HR) Management Program
Hiring, training, evaluating and disciplining employees is a time-consuming necessity in operating a physician practice. Our experience in overall Human Resources processes can help to minimize your practice from future legal ramifications by implementing strong HR policies and procedures.
When the physical layout of your office space can no longer accommodate your needs, then CPM can help to explore new options. From renovating your current location or moving to another location, our experts can design and oversee construction projects to maximize space efficiency or can evaluate other cost-effective space alternatives. If a move to a new location is necessary, then CPM can assist you to find a new location, negotiate your lease, design your office, oversee your construction needs and coordinate your office move.
Implementing and maintaining provider numbers with the third-party payers is a time consuming and sometime frustrating task. In addition, tracking the application throughout the credentialing process can be quite burdensome on office personnel. This is why we have developed our program that eases the task of completing the applications and we continue to follow up with the appropriate organization until the application has been completely processed. Weekly and/or bi-weekly reporting is sent to the provider to assure that all parties are involved in the communication process.
