Operational Excellence Management

Is your medical practice as healthy as it could be? With the healthcare Operational Excellence management solutions provided by VMG Health, you will see real results. Our expert consultants are available to help you identify areas for improvement and help you apply industry best practices, achieve operational excellence, and meet regulatory compliance requirements.

Operational Assessments

We will evaluate all facets of your operations and recommend best practice approaches, including appointment scheduling, patient registration, workflows, and staffing. We perform staff interviews and conduct comprehensive data analyses to identify performance improvement needs.

Billing Office Assessments

The scope of our assessment includes accounts receivable management, payer mix, payer contracting and fee schedules, key performance indicators, charge master, denial management, patient and payor account credits, medical coding audits, front end and back end billing procedures.

Denial Management Services

We identify the root causes of a practice’s reimbursement denials and create a proactive strategy to redesign your operations, provide timely cash flow, and increase revenue opportunities.

Managed Care Contracting

Managing the increasingly-complex healthcare reimbursement models is absorbing more of a provider’s resources – with no assurances that contracts are tenable or will lead to financial stability. With the emergence of revenue cycle management, models and tools that served organizations well for years need to be revisited. Contracting decisions must now take into account your hospital or medical group’s preparedness for value-based reimbursement and clinical integration. VMG Health provides contract review, recommends changes and assists with developing strategy.
