I've done QI but this is different....

  1. 0 dear all:
    i am an avid reader of mostly the general posts! today i need your help. i am interviewing for a position that goes beyond most of what i have done in the field of um/qi/cm. here is the job description:

    "quality assurance coordinator
    this is a newly created position. the primary focus for this position will be to conduct internal audits for all company departments such as: coding, accounts receivable, support, provider enrollment, customer service, private pay collections, medicare/medi-cal follow-up, etc. this position will report to the company compliance officer. they will work closely with our clients, management team, and staff.

    job requirements
    candidate must be a registered nurse with a minimum of 2 years of previous auditing experience in a healthcare environment. candidate must be extremely knowledgeable in physician billing and medical accounts receivable. candidate should have a big picture perspective of the industry, with healthcare experience in coding, data entry, billing, accounts receivable, and familiarity with all insurances. a college degree in a related field is a big plus. candidate must possess very good computer skills and have the ability to quickly learn new programs. candidate must be very organized, detail-oriented, and be able to work independently on projects."

    most of this i know (i.e. coding, insurances, data entry, facility auditing and home health bill auditing). my questions are regarding accounts receivable, and provider enrollment.

    For many health care entities this is what Outcome/OBQI etc has turned into. I usually spend a great deal of time on fiscal issues. I would say often I have been looking into things that require legal counsel so being comfortable asking about laws related to things like Stark Laws, State laws (endless list) is necessary, I have had to sign off fiscal reports, budgets; contract compliance and ensuring contracts are compliant to meet laws, rules, regs as well as accrediation standards/no enticements etcs; contractor relationships etc.

    I maybe spent 50% or less of my time on patient related studies and the rest of non patient direct care or outcome information.

    Coding compliance was a big thing. Coding is a huge legal risk if one is not doing it right. With ICD 10 lurking everyone will need retraining LOL.

    I did not see this post or I would have replied in November. How did your interview go?
