Medical Director of Advisory Services - Hazard , Kentucky, United States, 41702
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.
With the Sound Advisory Services clinical management team's support, you will expand your knowledge, drive value, and steward the well-being and financial stability of the hospital. A medical director of advisory services is a rewarding leadership opportunity for a motivated, engaged MD or DO with a minimum of 3 years of advisory experience (inpatient experience also preferred) and board certification (base specialty) recognized by ABMS or ABQAURP. For those considering a future as a physician executive, this role is an excellent professional development opportunity.
