Finding the person with the right expertise and ability to lead your Health Information Management (HIM) team can be challenging and time consuming.
Not only are the skills and experience important in finding the best candidate, but the style and personality also determine how the new hire will integrate with the existing team. Rather than rushing into a questionable hire, JTS Health Partners (JTS) offers a solution that places an interim leader within your organization until a full-time hire is onboarded.
JTS’ interim leadership can maintain departmental stability during the transitional period. In addition, they seamlessly join a client’s HIM department to support the team in developing processes and procedures to work down backlogged accounts, reduce inefficiencies, and guide the team to optimize workflows. The JTS team is familiar with EBEW/BEW worklists in Soarian Financials and can assist with resolving these edits. JTS’ interim solutions can also assist with the vetting of potential new employees having been a part of the team on a daily basis. Knowledge of the department’s processes, procedures, staff, and systems is an invaluable resource in assisting with finding the person who is the right fit for the team.
Interim personnel can be put into place to not only fill the gap during leadership transition, but also to provide departmental assistance when staffing is low due to sickness, vacation, increased workloads, or as we have seen recently, a pandemic. Having qualified, certified staff available for emergency coverage ensures patient accounts are coded correctly, bills are processed in a timely manner, and the department runs as efficiently as possible.
If your organization is in need of short or long-term interim HIM management or departmental personnel , contact JTS at (404) 816-6107 or firstname.lastname@example.org to learn more about our outsourcing solutions.
