Epic Clinical Documentation & Revenue Cycle Optimization

Planning for Epic optimization is a key part of the implementation process, particularly with newer implementation methodologies from Epic and the utilization of the Foundation System for faster implementation timelines. Optimization brings many financial and clinical benefits and results in improved end-user efficiency and satisfaction.

Clinical documentation requirements are continually evolving and ClinDoc optimization should be a high priority since it feeds data necessary for Meaningful Use, ICD-10, Case Management, Core Measures and others. Jacobus ClinDoc consultants help design workflows that ensure that all required information is captured for MU attestation, compliance and quality reporting – while optimizing the accuracy and integrity of data to support Big Data analytics and other clinical Performance Improvement initiatives. In the process we work closely with clinicians and physicians to ensure they more efficiently navigate and document within the Epic system.

Our Epic Revenue Cycle optimization practice leverages HFMA recommendations and a long-standing track record of Financial Performance Improvement though Jacobus’ Revenue Cycle Transformation methodologies. This approach optimizes Epic Revenue Cycle workflows – beginning at Pre-Admission, and driving efficiency across Patient Access, Case Management, Revenue Integrity, HIM and the Business Office to optimize revenue and cash collections. Our flexible approach is well suited to support the evolving reimbursement and shared payment models demanded by health care reform.
