Hospital Anesthesia

Revenue Cycle Management

 

For almost 50 years, Fusion Anesthesia Solutions has offered turn-key anesthesia billing and hospital anesthesia revenue cycle services that supports both your finance team and your anesthesia clinicians with value-added services.

100% Case Reconciliation

Fusion Anesthesia Solutions has developed and perfected processes to ensure cases for all anesthetizing locations are captured, including those often missed non-OR procedures such as arterial lines and blocks. We collaborate with your IT staff on a prescribed data feed and manifest to receive anesthesia data electronically. It is estimated that millions of dollars are lost by hospitals each year on uncaptured anesthesia charges.

Anesthesia Specific Billing Platform Ensures Compliance

Fusion Anesthesia Solutions utilizes an anesthesia specific billing platform to address the nuances of anesthesia billing.  Our platform is designed to take the guess work out of assigning appropriate modifiers, such as those associated with concurrency and/or qualifying circumstances, along with compliance assurance and a 98% clean claims rate.

Our multi-layered review process ensures that every document received is scrutinized prior to claim submission. In addition, Fusion Anesthesia Solutions has a rigorous internal auditing process, specific to anesthesia, to make certain our staff is meeting quality and compliance standards. Anesthesia has been a target of Recovery Audit Contractors (RAC) audits, many of which have been triggered by inaccurate reporting of start and stop times as well as inappropriate use of modifiers.

Anesthesia Specific Reporting and Analytics

CogitoAnalytics is Fusion Anesthesia Solutions’ proprietary tool, providing hospital finance and anesthesia clinicians with 24/7 access to the data by location including staff modeling ace teams are easily able to view anesthesia revenue by location, inpatient vs outpatient, by payer, by surgeon and much more. CogitoAnalytics allows for user based roles so designated clinicians have the ability to view data on volume by location, provider and more. Our staff analysis module allows both teams to work together to identify locations or times of day that may be over/understaffed as well as OR utilization.

Annual Documentation Review & Provider Education

Our multi-layer review process promotes regular communication with providers to ensure they  are aware of and correct any potential clinical documentation issues. While Fusion Anesthesia Solutions addresses potential documentation issues as they arise, these issues are recorded and serve as the foundation for our annual provider documentation training. During our annual review, anesthesia clinicians are educated on any potential documentation changes or issues that create compliance concerns or affect reimbursement. We also serve as a sounding board for providers that have questions at any time regarding documentation.
