Outpatient Compliance Review
ACS compliance reviews are designed to include all aspects of outpatient coding, billing and documentation in all outpatient department areas.
This in-depth review of outpatient accounts encompasses the whole picture of an episode of care. Extensive education is provided to the department heads and other staff members from the coding and billing departments. At the conclusion of the review, an exit conference is conducted to discuss findings and determine recommendations for improvement.
