Medical Staff SOS, Inc./PHIA provides Independent Review Organization (IRO) services as required by the Office of the Inspector General (OIG) to fulfill Corporate Integrity Agreement (CIA) or other governmental mandated compliance programs. We can assist physicians, hospitals and other health care providers or organizations to meet your voluntary or mandated requirements. We provide quality results at affordable prices.
Clinical professionals save lives every day, but without correct coding, billing and management, no practice can survive today's litigious society and keep up with governmental rules, regulations and laws. It is more critical than ever to have these positions hold current certifications. PHIA stays up-to-date with all of this crucial information and insists that their certified healthcare professionals do the same.
Mix-ups, oversights, and mistakes can easily overrun a medical practice. Thatís why offices around the country are turning to PHIA to ensure their staff follows standard practices and understands the advancements and changes in their field.
