Medical Billing Gold Seal Awarded

Medical billing is not always the most important thing in your facility. The Robert Wood Johnson University Hospital in New Jersey has realized this. This hospital was recently awarded a gold seal of approval for their stroke program. The medical billing Joint Commission on Accreditation of Healthcare Organizations (JCAHO) has deemed this program worthy of recognition.

Medical billing reimbursement for stroke patients may rise at the Robert Wood Johnson University Hospital. They have demonstrated superb excellence in dealing with victims of strokes. JCAHO only awards this honor to facilities that demonstrate their adherence to strict standards.

Quick stroke response treatment is one standard which is used. 24 hours a day, seven days a week, a stroke team must be available for treatment. This team does not include medical billing staff , but other neurosurgeons, radiologist, pharmacists, neurologists , emergency physicians, specialty nurseries , EMTs, and rehab experts. Although medical billing staff do not need to be on call 24 hours a day, seven days a week, they must be aware of the stroke center actions. Medical billing staff must know exact times of admission and exact treatment plans.

The Robert Wood Johnson University Hospital has proved there not only great with medical billing, but also in stroke treatment. It is the first facility in New Jersey to be awarded this honor. As a matter of fact, only eight have been awarded in the country.

New Jersey places weight on stroke treatment because about 4000 people die from strokes in New Jersey every year. To improve medical billing reimbursement in the state, health and treatment must be improved upon first. New Jersey has proved that medical billing reimbursement is not their main concern, but rather the health of it’s citizens.
