Outcomes+Quality+Revenue

Data-driven strategies to propel your clinic through recovery and to the next level. North Star provides you strategies to improve patient outcomes and quality of life, raise quality scores to land providers in the shrinking MIPS bonus pool, and increase practice revenue for a healthier bottom line.

Various 2020 surveys identified common barriers and obstacles practices face when trying to overcome revenue shortfalls from COVID-19. Lingering challenges of excessive time spent on uncompensated tasks (think prior authorizations, for example), rising overhead costs, and technology integration and upkeep costs all remain on top of new challenges in the form of adding Telehealth and Telemedicine, ever-changing coding and documenting rules, and finding ways to engage patients in meaningful and effective ways. We strive to address these through strategies practices can easily deploy to combat these specific drains on productivity, efficiency, and profits.

There is no "one-size-fits-all" solution due to layers of complexity within each practice – every panel has unique traits and every provider has his or her approach to their patients. Our approach centers on the relationships that bring the strategies to life in the clinical setting. We focus on areas with the highest levels of impact – direct and indirect – on a practice’s ability to deliver high-quality care, meet quality metrics (landing providers in the shrinking MIPS bonus pool), improve patient outcomes and quality of life, and increase net revenue and profits. What areas do you see as challenges?
