As Medical Director of Advisory Services, you will work side-by-side with physicians, staff, hospital leadership, and utilization management personnel to provide direct education and support in key areas including patient status, clinical documentation, compliance, and utilization management (UM). You will seek opportunities to improve processes, ensure that patients receive appropriate care, and help your clinical colleagues to make sure their documentation accurately reflects the work they do. As a hospital leader, you will also serve on, or even chair, the UM committee.
Traditionally, a physician advisor's role has focused on providing case reviews and responses to determinations and denials. At Sound Advisory Services, we believe a skilled physician advisor can do much more to impact hospital health and support fellow physicians.
