Sutter Community Connect can help reduce A/R days, facilitate accurate claims, allow paperless collection processes and streamline data entry. With Sutter Community Connect, your billing office can track revenue from individual billing entities. Its configurable library of medical necessity checks and charge/claims scrubbing routines help you reduce denials and satisfy demanding payers.
Sutter Community Connect includes an automated claims, billing and collection application that seamlessly integrates with all other practice management modules within the system. When a physician documents a patient visit, the system automatically generates charges based on diagnosis codes, tests and other procedures conducted during the time of the appointment.
Once a patient encounter is documented and the physician closes the record, a detailed algorithm is used to compare the charges against the patient’s demographic information to ensure the diagnosis code is appropriate. If the system detects a possible error, it generates a flag for the biller to follow up.
The Sutter Community Connect billing module allows billers and office managers the ability to run revenue management reports in real time to get a clear visual snapshot of the accounts receivable as well as trends over time.
Sutter Community Connect is designed to ensure the ease of navigation, seamless integration with patient registration and the medical record, and to reduce aging accounts receivable to improve cash flow to physician practices.
