Track physician activities and simplify your allocation process with BKD expertise.
A time study measures how time is spent over a specific duration on various activities. It provides a snapshot of a physician’s actions during the designated period—typically two weeks per quarter.
Time studies are required to allocate physician and midlevel costs between Part A and Part B. Conducting a physician time study can help healthcare organizations identify reimbursable expenses on the cost report that aren’t otherwise noted. Physician compensation costs are nonallowable without completed time studies.
