Whether is working with your current staff or providing a staffing and management solution we will provide proven processes to integrate ED/Hospitalist/Attending communication to optimize throughput, reduce denials and appropriately impact Length of Stay.

Quality Management

As transparency grows achievement against CMS Core Measures has never been more critical. Progressive has developed a proprietary Quality Management Dashboard that provides consistent data driven feedback measured down to the provider level empowering our Medical Directors, Nursing Management and Hospital administration to drive ED performance improvement. Granular and actionable data allows ED leadership in close collaboration with Nursing to continually revise Policies and Processes to promote Best Practice results which in turn will be measured and evaluated promoting a department of continually improvement.

Revenue Cycle Management

With the explosion of code sets, meticulous documentation is imperative to maintain the financial viability of a busy emergency department. As physician owners, our doctors understand this responsibility. We have invested significant resources to the review of documentation guidelines and training for adherence for appropriate ED coding.

This adherence to thorough documentation allows our practice to maximize billing/coding opportunities to increase collections within the confines of the rule sets. ii. We’ve seen greater than 25% increases in year over year collections in our new contracts by rigorous attention to detail in our physician charting.

We’ve seen a corresponding increase in facility fee collections by our partner hospitals due to the rich nature of the physician notes provided to our partner hospitals billing and coding resources.

As owners – our Medical Directors and leadership continually work to identify additional revenue sources in compliance with the CMS guidelines.

Progressive has made the strategic decision to partner with industry leading RCM providers, like Zotec and Allegiance, rather than burden our practice and our partner hospitals with additional overhead.
