The 3 C's to an Empowered Team

Posted by David Jones on May 2, 2018 2:56:14 PM

Last week, I heard a speaker talking about the importance of community. He used the phrase, “It takes a village”.   I’ve heard this phrase numerous times before, but haven’t really dwelled on its meaning.  Often, it does take a village to get things done.  As I thought about his comment, it’s not any different in the workplace because there it “takes a team”.  We have a great team at EnableComp and we understand the importance of teamwork.

How Do Hospitals Keep Up with Work Comp Fee Schedules?

Posted by Jesse Larrison on Apr 17, 2018 8:45:00 AM

Occasionally, I will get an email or a phone call from a VP of Revenue Cycle or a hospital CBO Manager asking me to help them find their state’s workers’ compensation fee schedule. I do my best to point them in the right direction, but more often than not I will try and better understand what their underlying question about work comp really is, as it is frequently NOT found in the fee schedule. That said, fee schedules are a good starting point for hospitals eager to learn more about their expected work comp reimbursement.

The 4 P's to Scaling a Business

Posted by Phil Clark on Feb 21, 2018 9:25:00 AM

Scaling a business is hard.  If it was easy, all businesses would skyrocket over $10M in annual sales, but actually less than 1% of businesses ever achieve that level.  If you want to scale a business, you are going to need a plan, and what better way to start planning than by borrowing a good acronym?

Posted by Hamilton Bowman on Jan 4, 2018 7:10:00 AM

Along with ringing in the New Year, many people resolve to make lifestyle changes (or resolutions) to accomplish certain goals and make it great.  There is no reason why Revenue Cycle executives shouldn’t use this time to re-examine their business line strategies.  Workers’ Comp (WC) claims are notoriously difficult to manage for several key reasons.  As you look at your complex claims goals for 2018, here are a few subjects to consider.

The $547,775 Error I Found in a Work Comp PPO Contract

Posted by Jesse Larrison on Dec 5, 2017 7:15:00 AM

Most hospitals that I encounter have at least a few Preferred Provider Organization (PPO) Network contracts that include workers’ compensation. Some have dozens. These contracts range from super simple 1-page Letters of Agreement, to massively complex multi-line managed care agreements. Hospitals typically devote staff to developing and managing these contracts, but just as is true with Group Health or Commercial contracts, work comp contracts have the same propensity for errors and abuse and left unchecked these blunders could cost hospitals dearly.
