Sinaiko Healthcare Consulting Is Now Altegra Health
For nearly two decades, Sinaiko Healthcare Consulting served as a trusted advisor to some of the nation’s most prominent healthcare organizations and health law practices, delivering proven, forward-thinking solutions and real results. On February 1, 2013, Sinaiko Healthcare Consulting officially changed its name to the Reimbursement & Advisory Services Division of Altegra Health.
Sinaiko Healthcare Consulting first became a division of Altegra Health in January 2011. This merger provided the opportunity to become part of an industry leader that provides a full range of products and services that align healthcare resources for payers, providers and members, all from a single company.
Although we officially changed our name, our team remains committed to providing clients with Experience, Integrity and Results.
Coding & Audit Services
Our client partnership approach is integral to our comprehensive facility and professional fee coding and audit services, which cover every specialty, inpatient and outpatient, and virtually any volume needs. Our expert reimbursement consulting, auditing, education and coding staffing support services allow our clients nationally to evaluate and improve their financial performance, meet compliance obligations, increase cash flow and streamline operations.
We offer a comprehensive ICD-10 service offering to assist payers and providers in every facet of ICD-10 implementation. Our organization is uniquely qualified not only to provide guidance on ICD-10 and HIPAA 5010, but also to evaluate readiness for the changes, recommend solutions and assist with the implementation of those solutions. Our consulting organization staff members have practical experience in information technology, clinical care, compliance, revenue cycle, clinical documentation improvement, coding and education.
Our enterprise risk services offer a unique approach in the marketplace, combining technical expertise and internal audit principles with true depth in healthcare operations, finance, compliance, and information technology. Our holistic approach to enterprise risk services includes assessing risks in six risk domains and utilizing a systematic methodology for analyzing organizational, business process, compliance and internal control risks while focusing on identifying practical solutions. Our compliance services represent absolute “best in class” technical experts and unique levels of resources due to our coding capabilities, whether addressing preventive compliance maintenance or routine auditing.
Valuation and Transactions
We perform fair market valuation assignments, providing strategic, analytical, compliant and transactional support related to virtually every type of healthcare business or asset, joint venture, hospital/physician relationship or physician compensation system or agreement. Our valuation team blends traditional and technical valuation skills with deep industry experience and credentials that consider the current issues raised by our other service lines, such as revenue cycle, provider reimbursement and regulatory compliance, which separate us from many of our industry-specific and generalist valuation competitors. As a result, we continue to provide leading valuation services for all purposes of business assessment, regulatory compliance, Internal Revenue Service and Office of Inspector General concerns.
In litigation, our exclusive healthcare industry focus and experience allows us to offer clients insight into the business and operational side of legal issues facing healthcare organizations today, as well as the seasoned objectivity and qualifications required of an expert witness. From increasingly complex regulatory requirements to billing and compliance issues, reimbursement disputes and transactional, joint venture or other business arrangements gone awry, today’s healthcare organizations face myriad risks that can result in legal action. We help providers, payers and health law firms effectively manage those risks or respond within a legal context.
From patient registration and insurance verification systems to charge master updates, billing, collections and denials management, our consultants have an in-depth understanding of all aspects of the revenue cycle — professional, facility and integrated — as well as the regulations under which healthcare organizations must operate that must be built into the process or system, not just imposed after the fact. This knowledge is rooted in both high-level and hands-on experience gained in a variety of healthcare settings, including hospitals, health systems, academic medical centers, managed care organizations and medical groups. We have deep and unique experience with Epic clients, integrating true Epic system expertise, internal controls, compliance and a wealth of experience with what can and does commonly go wrong within large-scale Epic installations and how to effectively and efficiently remedy those issues.
