Owned and Operated by Practicing Physicians & APCs
ApolloMD seeks to provide the highest quality physicians and APCs for emergency department services, and all clinicians are offered ownership, promoting teamwork and collaboration across all specialties. As an established ED staffing partner, we work to establish a core group of clinicians to live within the community and become truly vested to the hospital. Attracted by top compensation and high quality of life, ApolloMD physicians and APCs are recruited from leading training programs and hospitals throughout the country.
Commitment to Quality and Patient Satisfaction
ApolloMD’s primary commitment is to quality care and patient satisfaction. The ApolloMD Quality Team, led by the Chief Quality Officer, maintains a database of current tools and information to assist our clinicians in providing quality care with every patient visit. Each month, all EM physicians and APCs receive a personalized report containing MIPS performance and documentation accuracy feedback. Our years of experience in emergency medicine staffing and department operations has helped ApolloMD establish a dedicated patient experience team to offer internal consulting services customized for each partner hospital, making the organization stand out against all other contracting groups.
Operational Resources and Efficiency
ApolloMD believes for a physician services group to operate most effectively, tracking and managing account receivables efficiently is imperative. This process includes effective documentation, coding and collections techniques. For these reasons, ApolloMD established an in-house billing company. We utilize electronic records to maximize control and efficiency in the billing process, and continually leverage our size and legal expertise to successfully negotiate with managed care providers in order to maximize reimbursement.
Emergency Department Services that Improve Financials
Through efficient business services and strategic emergency department scheduling, ApolloMD has decreased or eliminated subsidies at most of our partner facilities. ApolloMD helps improve hospital financials in the ED by:
- Utilizing the proprietary ApolloMD Schedule Optimization System to match demand and capacity, ensuring appropriate coverage for periods of increased and decreased volumes
- Capitalizing on ED expenditures by improving patient throughput and allowing for volume growth
- Monitoring uncompensated care, including reimbursed CT scans, that the hospital would not be able to recover
- Preventing ambulance diversions and lowering LWBS rates
- Ensuring appropriate admission rates
