Chart audits (Services F1-F6) are the logical place to start when evaluating your organization’s current billing practice as well as providing an invaluable tool in determining the efficiency of your charge capture.
Our audit process is unique, as charts are reviewed by an auditor with 33 years of clinical experience. All procedures are reviewed for orders, documentation and coding accuracy. The final report will include detailed subjective findings and financial impact for each chart. Report presentation includes subjective narrative, spreadsheets and graphs.
Code-by-code review is included with the comprehensive audit. The ‘NET’ reported codes may be within a reasonable percentage as the expected coding, but you are at RISK for each code reported incorrectly.
An on-site executive summary is included. The presentation consists of a confidential financial impact summary, followed by individual chart by chart findings. Although the main aspiration of most organizations is to increase revenue, reducing your risk by identifying and correcting errors may prove to be the most important result of the chart audit.

RESOLUTION: Compliance Plan
The Churchill Model Compliance Plan (Service F8) is an integral part of the organization’s solution. A corporate compliance plan may be available that addresses the requirements stipulated by the OIG, but this product provides the exact documentation and coding guidelines that will be followed in your department.
Guidelines will be established for all codes reported in the department. Information will include; appropriate use, documentation methodology, and rules for "posting charges". An example would be an isodose plan that is computer generated on one day but not reported until the isodose plan is approved by the radiation oncologist. It is important for the auditors to understand why dates of service reported may vary compared to the documentation available in the patient's medical record.
