AuditGuard: Your Trusted Partner for Compliance Audit Assistance 

Staying on track with the ever-changing rules and standards for medical coding and billing means frequent healthcare audits are critical to remaining compliant.

We provide a comprehensive report of our findings, with actionable suggestions for improvements to correct deficiencies.

AuditGuard is your audit support partner and includes a one-on-one consultation with your audit report. Our goal is to provide the insights you need to maintain a steady revenue stream and avoid the consequences of noncompliance. Our experts will even give your team additional training and education to improve documentation, coding, and billing practices to address their audit findings.

Why Your Practice Needs Frequent Audits 

Monthly audits of your practice’s coding, billing, and reimbursement processes aren’t just about compliance. Audits are a means of revenue protection, and continually checking on a cross-section of accounts supports greater consistency in billing practices, helps the team develop better coder skills, and improves clinical documentation and record keeping. 

Catching errors sooner and more frequently also allows your practice to capture revenue sooner and avoid losses due to mistakes in coding. Whether you’re onboarding new coding team members or keeping existing coders in the loop about changes and updates to workflows and regulations, AuditGuard’s insights are an invaluable development tool.

Avoid Noncompliance and Fraud

Medical billing errors don’t always constitute fraud, but a pattern of mistakes or practices that exploit loopholes in medical coding and billing procedures could trigger an investigation. If CMS or other oversight agencies discover a pattern of noncompliance, the penalties can be swift and costly. 

AuditGuard provides the information and tools your business needs to prevent mistakes and intentional fraud by revealing improper billing and coding practices. This way, you can provide additional training and education or change procedures to reduce risk, protect revenue, and avoid expensive punishments.

Support More Accurate Billing

Inaccurate coding contributes to a host of issues — and it’s a common problem. Failing to code diagnoses, treatments, services, and procedures correctly is an example of noncompliance that can also affect your revenue stream and the overall quality of patient care.

AuditGuard reports help identify the cause of inaccurate billing, like charting errors or poor documentation, so your practice can make changes. 

Increase Revenue

Inaccurate coding can lead to denied or unpaid claims, cutting into the practice’s bottom line. Downcoding can also reduce reimbursement rates, causing your providers to get paid less than they deserve. At the same time, upcoding to more expensive services leaves the practice vulnerable to penalties for fraud. 

Comprehensive healthcare audits identify areas in the billing process that impact revenue. Armed with that information, you can make changes that increase revenues and support profitability. 

Improve Coder Education 

A compliance audit can be valuable for developing your coding team’s skills and supporting improved performance. Some of the ways you can use a compliance report include:

  • Setting quality benchmarks for staff
  • Preparing staff for external audits 
  • Identifying opportunities for further training and development
  • Improving communication

Using the results to improve your team’s performance reduces the risk of future errors, fraud, liability, and decreased earnings.
