Physician Advisory Solutions

Navigate the regulatory environment to reduce clinical denials.

Revenue cycle teams have historically considered a certain amount of claims denials acceptable. Now, as margins shrink and the reimbursement climate is significantly more challenging, even a small percentage of denials can significantly impact financial performance.

Clinical denials require focus and clinician intervention. With more than 130 physicians on staff, R1’s Physician Advisory Solutions can help. We support physicians and case management by navigating the regulatory environment and providing concurrent recommendations to increase billing compliance and reduce clinical denials.
