Charge Capture

Monitoring charge-capture effectiveness

Whether your practice uses a charge-ticket/superbill or EMR, a process for auditing charges to assure that all services are captured must be in place.  There must be systems to verify charge capture, both in and out of the office.  The patient list and/or missing ticket reports from the computer system are useful in the office, and comparisons between charge volumes and O.R. logs and/or surgery schedules are useful for services provided outside the office.
