Atlanta, Georgia (September 2020) – JTS Health Partners (JTS) recently entered into an agreement with Evangelical Community Hospital to provide consulting services within professional coding, education, and compliance areas of Evangelical’s Medical Services Organization (EMSO).
As part of the agreement, JTS will conduct Evaluation and Management (E&M) benchmarking analysis to develop and deliver a comprehensive ‘Knowledge Journey’ program for their physicians, mid-levels, HIM professionals, and office staff. The ‘Knowledge Journey’ curricula will be customized for Evangelical’s peer-to-peer training. Training will include medical code selection and Centers for Medical and Medicaid Services (CMS) 2021 new payment model and coding changes.
“JTS is delighted to, once again, be partnering with Evangelical to offer professional services that will improve and enhance their 2021 E&M efficiencies. The new E&M coding changes that will be implemented January 1, 2021 are quite extensive. I am excited to partner with our Executive Sponsor, Brian Wolfe, Vice President of Clinic and Physician Practices. Having worked with Bill Franquet, Vice President of Revenue Cycle, in the past, I am honored to offer his Revenue Cycle team customized E&M training,” says Thomas Stewart, President, CEO, and Co-Founder of JTS.
JTS was awarded for this engagement based on their response to Evangelical’s formal Request for Proposal (RFP) process.
