Health Care

HEALTHCARE IT CONSULTING:

We are healthcare IT consultants and professionals who help our clients use IT to improve the quality and cost of patient care. We do this by advising on the best way to align strategy, implement systems, apply analytics, and realize value from clinical data – value that can translate into performance improvement, care coordination, and better population management. We accelerate results and create sustainable solutions through our proven methodologies and proprietary tools. 

While healthcare consumers view patient care as the center of healthcare, for healthcare providers, getting paid for their services is equally important. As any Revenue Cycle Director or CFO can tell you, sometimes the “getting paid for it” can make the “taking care of patients” look easy by comparison.

Good Revenue Cycle practices are essential to keeping denials down, to collecting Accounts Receivable in a timely fashion, and, most importantly, improving cash flow. At Elite, we combine our clinical and technology expertise with a thorough understanding of financial management in the provider setting to help our clients meet their financial goals. 

Our consultants are former clinicians, many of whom have also been served in various levels such as A/R Directors, Billing Managers, or Revenue Cycle Directors. We understand the nuances of different clinical care settings, including hospitals, clinics, physician practices, and acute care facilities. 

ICD-10:

ICD-10 is coming – and soon. Organizations are employing widely varying approaches to prepare.  Some organizations will treat the preparation as a technical exercise. Others will treat it as a process change. Still others will look to train and revamp their staffs.  At Elite, we understand that successfully transitioning to ICD-10 requires a comprehensive and multi-disciplined approach. From physician documentation to abstraction techniques, from inter-faces and datasets to coding, billing and reporting, our clients will need to prepare themselves across the entire organization. Elite’s experienced team and cohesive methodology addresses the technology, the processes, and the organizational issues. We do this through a disciplined approach that includes assessment, planning, and remediation.
