We value talent and have partnered with auditors who have the ability to think out of the box and work actively towards helping our clients save their hard-earned dollars.

Manage Audits Effectively and Efficiently with Medlinks’ HealthCare Audit Tracker
Build by auditors for auditors, Medlinks’ HealthCare Audit Tracker is an advanced, comprehensive, HIPAA-HITECH compliant, cloud-based, tablet and smartphone compatible auditing workflow tool, designed to allow medical facilities to easily review and manage audits from the Letter of Intent to Audit(LOI)through adjudication. From pending to closed, you can easily track all stages of auditing with this smart tool, 24X7. Designed to dramatically reduce edit workflow, the software seamlessly synchronizes with Outlook and helps in scheduling, uploading bill, and auditing the case with line item findings per case. It also can add addendums and other features. The auditors at your facility can get access to full Charge Description Master (CDM) data to easily track error rates by department or even by single line item, and directly enter revisions for each line item as documented in the medical record. As per your preference, you can sort line items byDepartment, Date, Rev Code, Charge Code, or Unit Cost by description alphabetically, or simply type in what you’re looking for in the “bill description” text box. You can specify a reason for adjustment by choosing reason codes that include but not limited to: Not in Medical Record (O), No Order (NO), and Disputed (D).
Unlike our medical bill auditing services, which require prior assessment, a contract, and an on-site visit by us, in order to be able to use our Healthcare Audit Tracking tool, you simply need an account to get access. The staff needs to get some training on the tool though.
We Help You Stay HEDIS Compliant & Close Care Gaps with Complete Chart Chasing
The Healthcare Effectiveness Data and Information Set (HEDIS) was created by the National Committee for Quality Assurance (NCQA) to gauge how insured patients are being cared for. This is accomplished by collecting and analyzing data and documenting the clinical care offered by you to individual plan members, influenced through programs delivered by the health care plans. In order to ensure compliance, care gaps – the disparity between recommended practices and the care delivered to individuals – must be identified and closed in a time-effective manner. Medlinks offers complete HADIS chart chasing services, including record retrieval, research, abstraction, and over read services to help you stay compliant and close care gaps efficiently.
Effective Denial Management — Don’t Just Minimize Denials, Eliminate Them
An important phase of the healthcare practice revenue cycle, denial management is the process of collecting, tracking, reporting, trending, forecasting, measuring, and managing claims denied for payment by insurance payers. Ineffective denial management can lead to lost revenues: one of the major business risks! It’s critical to ensure you manage denials well so that you do not end up losing a lot of money. For this reason, you need to have an effective auditing strategy in place to keep a check on the different processes of denial management. This is where Medlinks Cost Containment comes into the picture. With our top-notch medical auditing services, we empower you to not just minimize but eliminate denials to improve the bottom line. Our auditing services are targeted towards helping you identify major reasons for revenue loss, find efficient ways for denials tracking and appeal, reduce denial volumes, improve cash collections and patient satisfaction, and increase communication and collaboration between departments.
We Have a Comprehensive Auditing Policy
An audit policy dictates your workflow and parameters and can be invaluable in contract negotiation, payer/provider communication, appeal processes, and the like. Surprisingly, a lot of healthcare institutions have a limited policy in terms of auditing, and in the worst-case scenario, none at all. Medlinks Cost Containment has a comprehensive auditing policy. You can download our “Audit Policy and Procedure” document for free.
