Does your cup runneth over?
Are you not sure if you’re billing correctly? Are you not collecting as much as you think you should? We can help you understand these areas to ensure you are billing compliantly and capturing the maximum amount of revenue.
Strategic Consulting for Pathology Practices
With the changing landscape in laboratory reimbursement, are you wondering what you should do next? Are TC/PC deals worth pursuing? Should you be expanding? We have worked with many Pathology Practices and have an experienced team that can look at your individual situation, give you creative ideas and even help you develop well articulated Strategic Plans.
Thinking of Leaving the Industry or Joining It?
If you’re an older pathologist and thinking of retiring, have you thought of not only selling your practice but also making it an annuity, in a sense? Even if you work for a large pathology company and have your own book of business, there’s a way you can potentially create a contractual plan that will continue your income even after you retire.
If you’re a new pathologist trying to decide if you want to join a large corporate lab, a small pathology group, or just start your own practice, we can help you make an informed decision! Depending on what you decide, we may be able to help you find a home and begin your new career.
Operational, Billing, and Sales Metrics
We have developed hundreds of operational reporting metrics for dozens of laboratories. These metrics are tried and give you a true dashboard of your businesses day-to-day performance.
Marketing and Branding
Do you outsource your marketing? If so, we may be able to help you bring it in-house and create a more robust, dynamic look and presence for you lab. We have marketing consultants with many years of experience in Pathology and can bring some little known methods to your lab to expand your presence in the marketplace.
Fee Schedule Development
Do you have a formal fee schedule? When was the last time it was updated? Do you know the right fees to charge for global, TC and PC billing? Do you have a patient bill fee schedule? We can help you develop or revise these to be appropriate for the current reimbursement environment.
Client or Office Billing
Are you doing client billing? Do you know if these relationships are profitable for your lab? Are you sure your client bill arrangements meet regulatory requirements? We have vast experience in this area and can help you understand where you are with these or if you should consider adding this as a growth area.
Are you capturing all of the charges for which you are rendering services? Does your billing service or department have proper reconciliation processes to ensure you’re billing for everything you’re doing? If not or you don’t know, we can help tighten this area up so you’re not leaving money on the table.
