Helping Urgent Care
Physicians Achieve Business Success
Practice Velocity Institute is dedicated to helping
urgent care centers and occupational medicine clinics maintain both compliance and profitability
in these difficult times for American physicians.
Using teaching conferences, consultations, and practical
charting systems, the Institute focuses on giving urgent care centers
the much needed tools to code successfully. The Institute
focuses physician training on:
Urgent Care Coding (E&M, CPT & ICD-9)
urgent care centers actually lose thousands of dollars in revenue
that they never bill out. This can happen for
many reasons including a lack of a clear understanding
of the labyrinthine coding rules, a desire to reduce
the cost of medical care, or a lack of efficient coding
capture. Do you know how and when you may add
an E&M code to a procedure code? Do you
understand when you can code for supplies? Our
focus is in educating physicians so that they will
know the whys, hows and whats of accurate medical
you understand, measure and constantly improve what
happens in between sending out a bill and getting
actual payment? Do you know how many days of
revenue are in your accounts receivable? Do you know
what your net collection rate is at 3, 6, 12 months?
Do you know what percentage of your AR is aged
over 120 days? Do you know these numbers for
each of your payors? Do you know where to find benchmarks
for these "dashboard" gauges? Tracking
and improving these numbers is critical to your financial
success. We can help you use this process to
improve your collection speed and percentage.
