KZA Consultations at the Phoenix Ortho AAOE Booth


Karen Zupko and Jennifer Bell will be at Phoenix Ortho’s AAOE booth to present consultations on some major topics related to orthopedic practice management. Two topics that Karen Zupko and Jennifer Bell are planning to provide consultations on include:

1: Dealing with Claim Denials

Collections has long been a challenge for orthopedic practices. One of the major things killing orthopedic clinics in recent years has been claim denials from insurance companies and other payer organizations.

Karen Zupko will be on hand at the Phoenix Ortho booth to provide consultations about how to deal with claim denials, highlight the need for “Denial Reports,” and how she used the Phoenix Ortho PM solution, powered by Open Practice, to generate the reports needed to improve orthopedic clinic cash flow.

2: The Impact of Telemedicine on Orthopedic Practices

The healthcare industry has long been moving towards telemedicine as a solution. However, the COVID-19 pandemic took what was once considered a “nice to have” solution and made it into a “must have” for orthopedic practice workflows.

Karen Zupko and Jennifer Bell will provide our AAOE booth visitors with consultations discussing the impact of telemedicine technologies on orthopedic practice management, advice for integrating telemedicine, and more!
