Clinical & Operational Excellence

FORVIS' team of clinicians, physician advisors, and prior hospital executives help clients drive care forward to identify and implement clinical and operational improvements through data-driven assessments, benchmarking, design, and implementation efforts. Our consultants help organizations improve performance and patient outcomes through:

  • ED Fine Tuning
  • Utilization Review & Case Management (UR/CM)
  • Length of Stay Management
  • Patient Statusing
  • Surgical Services Calibration
  • Service Line Strategy & Performance
  • Physician Practice Management

Cost Management

Increasing demands for an efficient workforce must be rigorously managed and continually challenged. However, patient care needs should not be compromised when determining staffing requirements and contractual labor arrangements. Productivity should be monitored, understood, and improved for continued financial success moving forward.

High performers know that continued investment in nonlabor cost reduction is a critical and productive investment. While inherently difficult to manage, areas such as GPO, supplies, purchased services, and capital investments are great sources for year-over-year margin improvement. With the right strategy, skills, and investment, even high-performing organizations can see bottom-line improvement equal to as much as 1.5–3% of net patient service revenue.

Our healthcare consultants are ready to help position your provider organization for cost management success.

CDI & Coding Compliance

Clinical documentation integrity (CDI) and coding professionals play an important role in both fee-for-service and fee-for-value reimbursement models by ensuring that the services provided to patients accurately reflect their unique medical severity. FORVIS coding and documentation professionals work with healthcare providers to help improve clinician engagement, develop policies and procedures, streamline internal processes for data collection, perform external coding and documentation compliance assessments, and provide education and training on CDI and accurate coding processes.

Payor Strategies & Services

Contract rates negotiated with payors in your local market are critical to healthy margins. Determining whether you’re being paid fairly requires benchmarking and an understanding of best practices prior to successful contract negotiation. FORVIS has access to both commercial and Medicare paid claims nationwide to help with benchmarking efforts.

Reaching an agreement with a payor about services and rates requires preparation, data analysis, and strategic negotiation. FORVIS will help determine if your organization is well positioned with major payors in the market and help you develop a road map to improve payor relationships. We can help with:

  • Benchmarking
  • Modeling
  • Payment Audits
  • Best Practices
  • Negotiations

We have a front-to-back assessment approach spanning many areas, including payor contracting, reimbursement strategies, patient throughput, charge capture, revenue cycle, cost management, and provider compensation design.

We leverage our experience in data analysis to create powerful, technologically advanced data visualization products, models, and dashboards that help users quickly and intuitively understand and analyze complex data sets. In addition, our tools and checklists include best practices that can be incorporated into daily operations.
