The controls let you begin the task of revenue optimization by auditing charge capture in your clinical applications. Without visibility into your entire EMR transaction process, you have no way of knowing if charging errors are happening before they hit your billing system. Our Charge Controls instantly show you when charging is inconsistent and where the inconsistencies originate so you have real-time, detailed visibility into your charging process.
Our developers and analysts are specialists in Cerner’s unique multi-tier architecture. The Charge Capture Controls bring hospital revenue departments the system performance visibility that Panther has delivered to IT departments at Cerner hospitals since 2000.
Panther’s years of monitoring have revealed that even small charging errors can lead to significant losses. Using our Charge Integrity Control, one client found that missing a single lab charge over a four-month period cost more than $3 million in missed charges.
Plugging directly in to your Cerner system and leveraging our Panther technology, you can now run charging edits even before a patient is discharged.
