Who We Are
Administrative Consultant Service, LLC (ACS) provides consultation to improve the clinical and financial outcomes of healthcare.
Our consultation services are designed to promote clinical efficiency and effectiveness along with ethical reporting of diagnoses and procedures through education, documentation integrity, and coding accuracy. It has been our experience that some hospitals find areas in which their billing practices have resulted in inadvertent over-payment. However, by far we find the majority of errors and omissions have resulted in underpayment. Experiencing inaccurate reimbursement may be attributed to a combination of factors, including coding practices, inadequate physician documentation, and/or inappropriate level of care determinations (inpatient versus outpatient).
Want to work with us?
In 1985, ACS was established to help hospitals achieve optimal reimbursement and cost-efficient, high-quality patient care by uniting the efforts of the physicians, coders, CDI specialists and other members of the healthcare team. We believed then and still do today, that this team approach enables the hospital to not merely survive, but thrive.
Deborah Hale, the company founder served as our CEO and President since 1985. Her commitment to spiritual values permeated the business and continues as a driving force today. We view our work as a ministry opportunity that serves the needs of our clients, and we consider our staff family.
