Staffing Resources

In order to maximize the delivery of effective healthcare, facilities require exceptional processes for collecting, maintaining, leveraging, and disclosing patient health information. But as you are aware, there are times when things don't go as expected... 

At other times, there’s a task the HIM leadership or privacy officer just hasn’t had time to tackle – policies and procedures, defining the legal health record, EHR governance or an overarching record inventory, retention and destruction policy. 

DML consultants can assist you with these important tasks:

  • Diagnose and help you resolve more complex issues or concerns
  • Tackle known issues requiring the objectivity of a third party
  • Objectively assess HIM services against best practices and lessons learned
  • Transform what may be good health information practices into great services
  • Address any problems still outstanding within the department


As a result of our services, your organization will experience: 

  • Reduced anxiety
  • More effective and efficient health information processes
  • Higher levels of customer and employee satisfaction
  • Reduction in accounts receivable (unbilled)
  • Regulatory compliance
  • Conformity to accreditation standards


Reviews


We work with your facility management to select a random sample of charts within specific DRG categories and evaluate them as
a RAC auditor would.  Therefore, you will have a greater understanding of the type of discrepancies these auditors will look for within these charts.  Of course the records cannot be modified or changed at that time, however being forewarned is forearmed!

DRG & APC Reviews:

DML Consulting offers design and implementation of continuous auditing and monitoring programs.  We perform DRG, Same Day Surgery, Emergency Department and APC reviews.

Reports may be customized to meet your facility's or physician practice needs and specifications.

Compliance and Reimbursements

DML Consulting follows the coding process through a structured methodology which has worked well for our large US clients.
