HIM Coding Solutions

HIM SOLUTIONS

Our HIM outsourcing solutions are designed to deliver overall clinical and financial success to our partners, focusing on improving all aspects of HIM performance.

The Business of medicine can be paralyzed without complete and up-to-date coding and reimbursement system knowledge and accuracy..

For hospitals and physician practices, two objectives matter most when it comes to billing for clinical services: maximizing revenues and reducing regulatory risk. Faced with an increasingly complex regulatory environment and aggressive federal and state audit initiatives, medical billing and coding operations at hospitals and physician practices must comply with all applicable healthcare laws and regulations.

Additionally, lost revenue from poor medical coding practices can significantly impact financial performance. And now with ICD-10, the industry is experiencing troubling reimbursement trends: payer inaccuracies, denials due to unspecified codes, an increase in medical necessity denials, slower and underpayments – all of which put healthcare organizations at risk.
