Specialized Coding for Managing the Complexities of Facilities
Modern medical coding, especially at the facility coding level, is extremely complex. It must be completed correctly and expeditiously the first time therefore to avoid costly mistakes and backlogs. As such, experienced professionals such as medical coding vendors or medical coding consultants with extensive knowledge capable of navigating multifaceted guidelines and regulations are required to ensure complete and accurate coded data, as well as a true depiction of each patient’s hospital visit is delivered each time.
Aviacode provides comprehensive solutions for all of your facility coding needs with experienced coding professionals. All of our coders are certified through AHIMA with such credentials as Certified Coding Specialist (CCS), Registered Health Information Technology (RHIT); or AAPC as Certified Inpatient Coder (CIC), or Certified Outpatient Coder (COC). Many of our coding staff has multiple certifications, thereby providing added value for flexibility among coding patient record types.
Producing quality services for all clients is a top priority at Aviacode. Our quality assurance (QA) program includes pre-bill reviews for staff that are new to the company, clients, or patient types. We validate our coder’s skills upfront in an effort to prevent costly mistakes to our clients, and all established coding staff are subjected to regular QA of 5% of charts coded. Trended results of QA reviews are then used to deliver focused education to our staff.
With coding and quality services such as claims edit/denials led by subject matter experts, you can rest assured that your unique requirements will be met. When you outsource medical coding services, you stand to save precious time, realize appropriate reimbursement, confirm accurate and complete data capture for quality reporting, and stabilize cash flow with an efficient coding process.
