The Society of Interventional Radiology is excited to offer the SIR Revenue Cycle Management course. It will educate Interventional Radiologists and their business administrators on coding, billing updates, and best revenue cycle practices to support fiscally sound performance improvements. The course is designed to help IRs improve front, middle, and back-end revenue cycle processes, as demonstrated by improved clinical documentation, code assignment, and associated charge capture. Additionally, the course will cover the CPT® and RUC process on how a CPT® code is made and valued within the AMA® process.           

Program objectives

Upon completion of this course, an attendee should be able to:
  • Identify gaps and opportunities in the IR revenue cycle to address in your practice setting.
  • Understand how to protect your practice from payor audits.
  • Learn about the creation, revision, valuation, and coverage of IR procedure codes.
