Why a Great Doctor is Worth Every Penny

What’s the most important goal of any emergency department? For most of us, it’s simple: providing outstanding emergency department patient care. To achieve this, the single best investment you can make is hiring an outstanding physician and creating functional and reliable partnerships.

Your physicians are the captains of the ship.

Your physician will set the tone in the Emergency Department. A well-qualified physician will earn the confidence of the nurses and techs and will inspire cooperation and positive attitudes in the staff. They will care for your patients with empathy, compassion, and technical skill. They will communicate and work with your medical staff to coordinate further outpatient and inpatient care. They will be the leaders of the Emergency Department.

Medical Charts | Innova Emergency Medical AssociatesImproving Billing with less Chart-Chasing

Your facility and providers should be billing for the work they provide. An outstanding emergency physician knows how their charting affects billing and will provide the documentation needed for you to match the ideal coding levels for your facility. This translates into easier budgeting, less chart chasing, and ideal reimbursement without concerns for over- or underbilling.

A strong physician group will help you achieve your goals – whether it is trauma certification, improved community reputation, or better teamwork in your medical staff.
