Hospital-based Pathology Billing
Many pathology groups work in a hospital setting which provides unique and differentiated support to the group. But this also means a complex environment for billing and reimbursement since information is typically in several hospital system, beyond the direct control of the pathologist.
AdvantEdge has over 30 years of experience coding and billing for hospital-based pathology services in mid-size and large hospitals. Our expert IT team knows how to deal with the hospital IT staff to get information from your LIS, the ADT system and other systems, as required (e.g. the hospital EMR). In addition, our team of hospital pathology coders and billers stays current with regulations and ever-changing payer requirements. They communicate regularly with client physicians and staff providing information on these changes, feedback on documentation, and compliance advice.
Hospital Pathology Billing Service: ClientFirst
Hospital-based pathology groups expect and depend more than basic billing and coding. First they need responsive service to address questions and opportunities that arise. Examples include payer reimbursement changes, hospital contract negotiations and potential ACO discussions. AdvantEdge ClientFirst service responds to these needs and many more. The AdvantEdge Client Manager represents our entire company and is available at any time to answer questions and to proactively provide information and insight about healthcare challenges that could affect your practice. Most importantly, the Client Manager works as a partner with your pathology group.
