    Metrics and Tools to Track Denial Management


    Managing denials is an important task to prioritize, but it can be challenging to effectively manage denials on top of handling various day-to-day tasks in your practice. According to industry sources, each denied claim costs about $25 to rework and 65% of denied claims are never resubmitted. Understanding the metrics and tools to better manage your denials is key to staying on top of denials and keeping clean claims top of mind. Join Todd Riendeau, Sr. Solutions Manager, and Kathleen Moritz, Expert Solutions Specialist as they present a comprehensive overview of denial management and will review high-performing tools to help your team efficiently work through claims.
