Every lost billable hour costs between $1,000-$1,500. Our physician led teams can quickly implement solutions to overcome short-term challenges while analyzing your environment to identify root cause and determine the pathway to long-term success.
The concept of tying medical reimbursements to quality of care is here to stay, and that’s not a bad thing. Despite their complexity, quality programs can make a dramatic difference in quality of care and correspondingly, the success of your business. BroadPath understands this and works tirelessly to help our clients achieve high quality across their entire organization.
BroadPath’s PQRS engagements are led by physicians who believe that physician reporting should be a fair and accurate portrayal of an organization’s caregivers. As such, we don’t rely on rigid programs or canned consultancy tools that tell only part of the story. Instead, we conduct a careful and thorough organizational analysis based on our clinical experience and deep understanding of PQRS policy. The upshot provides our clients with a thorough organizational quality assessment that often identifies opportunities for significant process improvements and efficiency gains. In all cases, our clients successfully report to PQRS and gain a better understanding of their organization’s quality, its processes, and if necessary, how to improve them.
Hospital quality programs are often implemented in piecemeal fashion with associated projects extending well past their deadline, scope and budget. With so many hospital quality programs to choose from, it’s not surprising. Programs like the Hospital Inpatient Quality Initiative, Hospital Outpatient Quality Initiative, Ambulatory Surgical Center Quality Initiative, and the Inpatient Psychiatric Facility Reporting Program can often be combined to maximize operational and clinical efficiency while lowering costs and increasing reimbursements.
The sheer number and diversity of private payer quality programs can be overwhelming, especially in a region with a robust payer market. At their core, private payer programs are not terribly different from the programs derived from the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services. When executed effectively, these programs can result in improved capacity and quality of care.
Preventable readmissions are a burden for everyone. BroadPath helps organizations maximize the efficiency and improve the efficacy of 30-day readmission programs by integrating all quality programs into a single holistic process. Quality programs like PQRS have provisions that will facilitate program inclusions. Our team can implement or develop a plan to achieve a well-defined patient and provider discharge process, follow-up outreach, medication reconciliation, patient symptom monitoring plans, and an interdisciplinary care team approach.
