To minimize error rates and reduce the risk of denials, the Quality Auditor reviews all claims. We maintain a review log for billing, Posting, and AR/Denials. The most common reasons for claim rejections are specified in a log list compiled by our staff. With the help of this ready reference, we track trends in remittance advice. We monitor and evaluate these trends to resolve the problems that are causing the denials and rejections of your practice.
Every month, we hold review meetings (Feedback Session) where the entire team is involved, and RCM processes are presented.
We conduct a keen & detailed procedure to assess quality at every stage:

The Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act of 1996 (HIPAA) was passed by United National Congress and signed by the then President Bill Clinton on August 21, 1996. The main objective of this act was to amend the Internal Revenue Code of 1986. This was to improve portability and continuity of health insurance coverage in the group and individual markets, to combat waste, fraud, and abuse in health insurance and health care delivery. Also, it promoted the use of medical savings accounts, improved access to long-term care services and coverage, and simplified the administration of health insurance.
It even includes promoting the use of medical savings accounts and improving access to long-term care services, coverage, and simplifying the administration of health insurance.
HIPAA has Two Titles:
Title 1: Protect health insurance coverage for workers and their families when they change or lose their jobs.
Title 2: known as the Administrative Simplification provisions, makes it mandatory for providers, health insurance plans, and employees to establish the national standards for electronic healthcare transactions and maintain national identifiers or credentials. AS also addresses the security and privacy of health data.
There are subsections of the law related to administrative simplification and confidentiality of protected health information. These laws have far-reaching effects on Providers, Payers, Managed Care Organizations, their business associates, and any entity storing, processing, and transmitting healthcare information.
