Is Your Practice Meeting PMPM Quality Incentives?

gi referral workflow

As the ambulatory space continues to grow, anesthesia partnerships need to go beyond the immediate patient experience and recovery process. In that same vein, they should always help surgeon partners increase patient compliance with colorectal cancer screenings and ease the burden of the overall referral process, thus increasing your revenue.  The right partner can even help offices shape their GI referral workflow.

PCP Value: A smoother referral system linking to outpatient procedures leading to increased patient compliance, resulting in healthier patient outcomes.  As well, a significant reduction in out of pocket costs to the patient, providing an exponential revenue stream that makes its way back to the practice.  

Despite great strides in value-based care and improvements in preventative screening incentives and access to care, many patients still fall behind on meeting their preventative care metrics in fear of going to the hospital.  This can significantly impact the cash flow of your practice.  Primary care providers could very well ease the mind of the patient by sending them to an outpatient specialist that we can service, especially with an engaged, consultative anesthesiology provider that has helped build a safe, compliant landscape.

Food for Thought: Have you considered which other preventative care metrics can be met in an office-based setting? Patient compliance brings additional revenue to your practice! We can help!

Could your GI referral workflow could use some help? Scope sponsorship partners in the Pacific Northwest, Chicagoland area, and Texas are ready to help YOU evaluate your method and strategically set your team up for success!
