It’s no secret that the healthcare industry is complicated.
With the rapidly evolving regulatory guidelines and consumer demands, continually adding new layers of complexity to the healthcare industry, choosing the right path for your organization is the most critical decision you can make.
Across the country, healthcare providers are searching for new ways to provide value to their patients.
Our goal is to help physicians and healthcare organizations provide patient-centered, high-value care that reduces cost and increases care quality. To meet this goal, the approach must be specific to each payer’s coverage and requirements.
This is known as “value-based healthcare.” It is the future of healthcare service technology and allows for the best sharing of information and managing workflow.
Our healthcare consulting services include:

You can more effectively measure monitor, and improve performance associated with measures like the star ratings, while boosting efficiencies, saving time and resources with integrated chart chase management and medical record review validation to support your annual audit process.

Accurate and up-to-date documentation is incredibly essential for compliance and patient satisfaction. Edafio can help you understand the impact your EHR has on documentation, and we can help you review all of your documentation for accuracy and compliance purposes. To be successful in an audit, all of your documentation must be up to date and accurate

Our healthcare consultants are able to work with you on implementing team-based care and optimizing your care team structure at the practice.

We deliver practical solutions for the process and system challenges the healthcare industry face. Our teams’ comprehensive expertise with all primary EMR solutions allows us to understand the EMR and PM Vendor management, implementation and optimization difficulties healthcare organizations face on a more extensive and broader scope.
Many insurance payers’ plans have begun covering care management for their patient populations. Participating in innovative payment models like Patient-Centered Medical Home (PCMH) or the Comprehensive Primary Care Plus Initiative Billing payers or getting upfront care management fees are excellent opportunities for your practice. However, this type of practice transformation requires hands-on assistance to be successful and audit-ready for claims submitted.
Before ramping up these efforts, take careful consideration to ensure patient satisfaction and outcomes.
Edafio healthcare consultants can lead and assist in this effort as desired. We have found that our “hands-on” approach is an excellent fit for ACO groups as well. We strive to ensure the practice and the ACO can succeed in the various quality-driven programs.
Edafio takes a multi-pronged approach with Practice Transformation. We believe a combination of focus on Annual Wellness Visits, Transitional Care Management, and Chronic Care Management can genuinely move your practice to the next level.
Billing Medicare or other payers for additional services that the clinic is not providing is an excellent opportunity for your practice; however, practice transformation requires hands-on assistance to be successful and audit-ready for claims submitted.
Edafio Healthcare Consultants assist with this program as part of our multiyear quality strategy planning approach. We assist our clients in success for preparation efforts, building out audit documentation all the way to assist with audits of previous years’ attestations.
This was my first time working with Edafio and I was very impressed with their thoroughness and professionalism during the security risk assessment. The staff was so knowledgeable and easy to work with. The deliverables were very in-depth and offered solutions to help eliminate vulnerabilities. We were all very pleased with the quality of our SRA and would highly recommend Edafio.
I have been delighted with the services of Edafio, including IT and Cybersecurity Risk Assessment Services, as well as Healthcare Consulting Services, more specifically covering HIPAA Regulations. They will work with you to provide services that are individualized for your company. They go above and beyond to help their clients. I would highly recommend Edafio!
As a start-up medical practice, we did not have internal personnel to facilitate getting set up with MIPS. [Our Healthcare Consultant] and Edafio did an exceptional job helping us not only get set up, but they also took responsibility for training our nurses on the various quality metrics, as well as learning the EHR and helping out as an EHR Super User. I would not hesitate to recommend them to any practice in need of help.
Thanks so much for hooking me up with Valerie. She has been such a help. She has helped me with hospital meaningful use and the Medicare Quality Payment Program reporting requirements I didn't even know I needed to do. Very grateful for her help!
Edafio’s Security Risk Assessment covered the administrative, physical, and technical safeguards of the Security Rule. The reports were comprehensive to include risks identified as high, medium, low in a working document that allows for ease of use in documenting and tracking remediation efforts.
When I took on the meaningful use management for our practice I was completely lost and was not sure how I would have met the requirements or kept up with the changes to the measures. Without Edafio, mainly Lori, I am not sure that I would have been able to keep the physicians educated and on track with their measures.
