Hospitals have been trying to solve this issue, as it is causing a significant loss of revenue. Once a medical facility has been found to have fraudulent claims, federal healthcare systems will not pay on claims. Some hospitals have been changing vendors, while others have been executing intense staff training to reduce this occurrence.
The simplest solution to this escalating problem is utilizing a transcription service, as it not only reduces costly training but also allows medical staff to focus on patient care without rushing through documentation. This reduces the temptation of using the "cut & paste" function and increase accuracy overall, lessening your possible exposure to legal issues and costs.
