Charge Lag

Does anybody have experience with reducing Charge Lag days in the OR? If so, can you share what were the top reasons contributing to the Charge Lag?


  • Some charge duties were dependent on one person without back up in place for PTO or sick leave.

  • An issue for us is waiting for supplies to be created in the surgery system at the corporate level. If this isn't monitored, then claims go out the door without the supply charge. If known, we can put a claim on hold until the charge posts.
