Charge Capture

 

The importance of timely and accurate charge capture cannot be understated since this process at any facility drives the revenue generation process. It also provides the most appropriate measurement of utilization of resources. However, since charges are generated in many areas across a hospital and the process always includes some type of human intervention, it is imperative that these processes be evaluated for effectiveness.

 

Our charge capture services range from review of departmental charge capture tools and processes to ensure their effectiveness, to following the charges as they move from point of service to posting on the patient’s bill. This may involve:

  • Following the charge through interfaces between the department systems where the charge is generated, to the patient accounting system where the charge is posted
  • Reviewing the manual processes used to post the charges

The goal of these reviews is to identify any areas where charges may be lost either because they were not captured, or as they were processed manually or electronically.
