Today’s local, state and federal healthcare regulations are too complex – and the potential penalty for not complying to trust your medical compliance program to anyone but the very best is high. That’s why some of New York’s leading healthcare institutions trust the compliance professionals at RR Health Strategies (RRHS) for all their compliance services.
Ensure that all individuals in your organization observe pertinent laws and regulations in the performance of their work. Articulate a broader set of ethical standards that are well understood, and adhered to, within your organization.
At RRHS, we have a proven track record of helping organizations like yours get healthcare compliant and stay compliant. Working with you, we’ll develop a tailored, measurable compliance program for your organization that will enable you to ensure you’re compliant with the Center for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS guidelines) and other governmental regulations.
Our certified professionals review your documentation and medical coding services to ensure they’re appropriate and meet the requirements issued by CMS and other governmental regulations. We review it with an eye toward determining if the services provided are supported by the documentation present in the medical record. All services rendered are assessed for appropriate medical documentation requirements and code selection.
The purpose of this review is to help you identify areas of documentation improvement. We use a proprietary coding audit tool, similar to one approved by the Office of Inspector General, which assigns an accuracy rating to coding compliance issues identified. Medical record documentation, along with associated charge capture documents and/or billing forms are reviewed and compared to the codes billed or to be billed. Based on the issues identified, we provide appropriate recommendations, and corrective action plans to help you maintain healthcare compliance going forward.
Our experienced coding and billing experts provide Due Diligence Support Services including random sampling, detailed audit analysis of medical record documentation and billing data and financial impact analysis. Our Due Diligence Services provide private equity firms and organizations with the support and analytical services needed to properly assess practices and groups for acquisition.
To help ensure your practice remains in compliance, RRHS conducts compliance education In-Services for providers and ancillary staff that address such topics as Medicare Teaching Setting Guidelines, Evaluation and Management Services (E&M) and documentation guidelines, appropriate documentation and coding compliance practices and non-physician practitioner guidelines. We also tailor our presentations to provide specialty-specific medical coding guidelines including NCCI edits and appropriate modifier use.
We can develop and implement a medical compliance program to ensure your organization adheres to protocols and procedures related to HIPAA compliance, privacy rules, security policies, OMIG, OIG, appropriate medical record documentation, coding, billing, and claim processing guidelines. Our expert team will develop tailored policies, procedures, and manuals to support your organization’s compliance needs.
