Results Achieved to Date

  • 6/29/04 - We have two QI projects that are addressing issues related to "lost income": 1) patients "walking out" without presenting at Check-Out with their superbills for processing; (Team #582) and 2) incomplete information on superbills; i.e., services being provided are not noted by staff on the superbill and thus are not charged to the patient. (Team #583) Between the two QI projects we have been able to recoup $16,460.25 in lab and x-ray charges from April 2003 - April 2004. - Pat Irwin
