Harmony Healthcare, a leading population health and revenue cycle management staffing and business consulting solutions partner to healthcare organizations nationwide, today announced the launch of Compliance Integrity Audit (CIA) a Harmony Consulting Solutions (HCS) service. This new solution efficiently and effectively leverages physician-directed clinical documentation integrity reviews and technology, empowering healthcare organizations to minimize risk and drive revenue recovery and compliance.

“In this rapidly evolving era of value-based reimbursement, health systems are being called upon to ensure adherence to accurate coding and billing including relevant documentation of billing codes and proper charging of insurers for medical services rendered,” stated Christian HG Brown, Harmony Healthcare chief executive officer. “That requires taking coding and audit validation to the next level with physician-led reviews to confirm whether the patient truly possesses the conditions documented in the record. Clinical accuracy on claims ultimately contributes to ensuring data integrity to effectively drive population health management. We chose to expand our HCS services to better serve and meet the increasing needs of today’s healthcare organizations.”

Compliance Integrity Audit provides clinical validation to health systems remotely and in real time significantly impacting quality and bottom-line results. Harmony Healthcare’s physician consultants use an innovative cloud-based platform that micro segments cases needing specialized review to identify challenges by discipline and DRG categories. This solution has demonstrated statistically significant improvements in quality, compliance, and reimbursement. Recent case studies reveal an average return on investment of four to one.

Since the conversion to ICD-10, healthcare organizations are increasingly challenged with coding and DRG accuracy rates far below industry standards. Traditional coding methods just aren’t enough in today’s ever-changing healthcare landscape. CIA will not only reduce denials to optimize reimbursements, it will lay the foundation for a population health strategy—enabling health systems to better predict and target population health opportunities.

To accelerate HCS’s continued growth and industry leadership, Harmony Healthcare has named Ken Folkman, an experienced healthcare consulting executive, for the newly created role of director of HCS client solutions. “Harmony Consulting Solutions is on a path of expansion in an extremely fast-moving and dynamic marketplace,” said Harmony Healthcare CEO Christian HG Brown. “With his success in building sustainable business growth in transformational environments just as we have in healthcare today, Ken is the perfect choice to join the Harmony team as we deliver new innovations that are changing how revenue cycle services are delivered and received.”
