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 as1.5 to 3 percent of net patient service revenue.

FORVIS healthcare advisors are standing by 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 specialists 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 & Solutions

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 healthcare pros can help you determine if your organization is well positioned with major payors in the market and develop a road map to improve payor relationships. We can help with:

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

Digital Solutions

The healthcare industry is flooded with data. However, data without context is neither valuable nor actionable.

FORVIS believes that valuable data should be able to help you execute strategies and drive meaningful change. Our team focuses on providing clients with the right information at the right time. We leverage our experience in data analysis to create powerful, technologically advanced data visualization products, models, and dashboards that quickly and intuitively enable users to understand and analyze complex data sets. In addition, our tools and checklists include best practices that can be incorporated into daily operations.
