Back to basics: measuring denial management success
Temple, Texas (PRWEB) August 10, 2017
Mr. Avery will present “Denials Management: From the Basics to Success,” on August 17, 2017. The presentation will cover a range of topics, including understanding the basics of denial management, denial Key Performance Indicators (KPIs), information used to understand KPIs and best practices for providers.
Using data and lessons from healthcare providers across the United States, Mr. Avery will share common KPIs used to manage their denial programs and will answer the following questions: How are KPIs collected and how are they used? How do they look at average recovery and denial rates? How are they moving the dial on these denial numbers? Participants will be encouraged to share their experiences.
