Cogentis focuses on the business of healthcare, and sees the importance of innovation and collaboration to achieve robust and sustainable health services in Canada. Cogentis offers both breadth and depth in its management and consulting services, including clinical operations, policy development, feasibility studies and program assessments. Late in 2007, Cogentis added revenue and financial recovery services to its services for hospitals and regional health authorities.
Cogentis' associates have an impressive track record and experience in healthcare. This experience includes leadership positions in publicly funded, privately delivered health care initiatives; precedent setting contract negotiations; large-scale program evaluations and feasibility studies for innovative healthcare projects; and consulting services in a range of health programs.
Consultation and management services
Cogentis provides consultation and management services to new and existing health facilities in both the public and private sector. With an expertise in surgical programs ? including staffing, patient management, doctor relations and the regulatory environment ? Cogentis has a solid reputation for identifying the issues, developing solutions, and managing their effective implementation. Our services include feasibility studies and program assessments, business and operational planning, financing and funding, and contract negotiations.
Revenue and Financial Recovery Services
In a publicly funded, universal healthcare system, the vast majority of patient encounters in a hospital setting are globally budgeted services. With a number of alternate payer sources responsible for the cost of care beyond the universal payer system, Cogentis offers revenue recovery service for hospitals and health authorities to claim previously unrecognized revenues (WorkSafe, RCMP, out-of-country patients, etc.). This work includes daily review of patient encounters, billing to appropriate payer sources, and collections services for out-of-country patients.
