First Abstraction

Estimated time commitment: 2 hours

All of the logistics for onboarding are complete; but that doesn’t mean we’re finished! Our team has officially begun managing your quality data which means that it’s time for you to dig in on our processes and the workflow to truly ensure we meet your facility’s unique needs.

It won’t be automatic — that’s why you have the help of your Partner Experience Manager. He or she will guide you through the early bumps and hiccups to get you to a happy, steady state of partners.

Stakeholders include but are not limited to: Project Coordinator; Quality Administrator

Making the Q-Centrix Team Your Team

You’ll need to meet weekly for the next two months with your Partner Experience Manager and your Team Leaders. Your calls will focus on process, workflow, Fallouts to ensure that all data is reflecting what you want in an abstraction. These weekly meetings are vital to success.

Communication has never been more important than it will be for the next two months of your partnership!

Get Financial

You’re going to want to make sure that everyone has what they need to facilitate timely and accurate payment for the Q‑Centrix services.

First, take a look at our invoice. All Q-Centrix Invoices are exactly the same to eliminate the potential for errors.

Then, review the Case Detail documents, located in Q-Apps. Case Detail will detail your bill by case and facility. If you have multiple facilities, you’ll use our Case Detail document to identify what charge is for which facility. Your Partner Experience Manager will show you how do this quickly and efficiently.

Q-Centrix manages a complex billing process to allow the ultimate level of transparency. Therefore, if you require custom billing it will necessitate a few hours of review of the first three months’ invoices to ensure the detail is exact.

If there are any outstanding questions that cannot be answered within the billing section of this site, bring your questions to the call.

During your weekly calls with your Team Leader and your Partner Experience Manager, we’ll walk you through our Customer Portal and any relevant reporting. Our technology is intuitive, but it still requires a brief overview. So, get ready to be delighted!
