WE GET IT.
PREVENTION IS A TOUGH SELL.
According to a few certified geniuses, however, it may just be the smart way to go.
WE PROVIDE CHART REVIEW SERVICES DESIGNED TO INFORM AND PROTECT CLINICIANS.
Chart reviews may be the flossing of the healthcare business world, but wouldn't you rather hear the news from a friend than an adversary?
Unfortunately, many healthcare professionals only discover how an attorney, state board, or peer review committee looks at healthcare records too late.
At least we make it easy.
YOU MIGHT SAY IT'S 'PAINLESS' OR MAYBE 'JUST A LITTLE PRESSURE.'
All true. If you can upload a document, you're set. Our team of experienced peers will evaluate each chart for more than 40 specific problem areas.
You'll receive a report detailing the results, explanations, and straightforward, proven recommendations. And, of course, there's the certificate.
Some additional info:
WHY SHOULD I DO THIS?
Patient charts are the most important legal record of care.
These records may be evaluated by opposing attorneys, hospital peer review organizations, and state licensing boards.
The quality of your records often sets the tone and may limit liability.
Our service generally satisfies peer review requirements for facilities and individuals.
It's good to know where you stand so that there are no surprises.
Completing an annual chart review may provide insurance benefits and reporting exemptions with the National Practitioners Data Bank (NPDB).
DO I NEED PATIENT PERMISSION?
Patients don’t need to authorize a chart review.
Aegis Review (AR) must protect, preserve and maintain all protected health information. You can release this information to AR without the signed consent of your patients. This is allowed under the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act, or HIPAA, Privacy Rule, which permits providers to release certain protected health information to their business associates for the purpose of health operations and risk management. We sign a business associate agreement with every client.
Providers are not required to provide psychotherapy notes, which require a patient’s authorization prior to disclosure.
I'M AN ATTORNEY. CAN YOU...
Unless your next words are "help me defend a doctor?", we'll pass.
Nobody's perfect and we recognize that patients can be wronged and have a right to access the legal system. We just believe that there are plenty of services out there designed to do just that and not enough designed to provide assistance to healthcare professionals. We have very successfully assisted in legal timelines or state board responses for defense purposes.
