The complexity of orthopedic procedures and the rapid pace of change within the specialty make it increasingly challenging for practitioners to ensure that each patient encounter is coded properly and billed correctly. ADVOCATE's expertise in working with orthopedic practices minimizes the potential for miscoding or submitting claims that payers are likely to disallow, so practices receive accurate reimbursement more promptly. Other benefits include:
REVENUE CYCLE SOFTWARE
with tools that enable us to maintain rigorous collection and compliance controls in areas unique to orthopedics.
A CUSTOMIZED APPROACH
developed with your team. Unlike many providers who use the same approach for every practice, your comprehensive payment and collection policy manual will be unique to your needs. We think this is vital, given the growth of high-deductible health plans and patients having to bear a larger share of payments.
EASY TO READ & INTERPRET REPORTS
helping to quickly evaluate financial performance, compliance, and productivity of individual providers and your group as a whole.
DETAILED REPORTING & ANALYTICS
that allow us to extract, analyze, interpret, and disseminate data in virtually any format.

“I contacted ADVOCATE the day before Thanksgiving 2013 and they organized a meeting for the day after Thanksgiving. What more can I say? A company willing to meet me over the holiday weekend and problem-solve my corporate needs was all I needed. It simply demonstrated commitment and partnership. These two qualities continue to remain consistent today.
"Within a few weeks, ADVOCATE evaluated our practice, educated our staff and began our medical billing. If that wasn’t enough, they helped identified an interim administrator that promoted the continued evolution of HMA.
"Although I have developed many great relationships over the past 20 years, ADVOCATE has repeatedly demonstrated the following qualities I find to be unique: partnership, integrity, available, and open-minded. Seven years ago this relationship began. The integrity and service continues to be outstanding. We appreciate all that ADVOCATE offers to help our organization succeed and look forward to many more productive years.”
