We understand that there are many challenges to effectively onboard and retain competent medical coders, all while consistently training them on changing coding systems and regulations. Medical Coding Education allows new and experienced staff the ability to grow and test their industry knowledge, as well as offers providers peace of mind by ensuring proper staff training, improving outcomes for patients, and supporting proper practices for optimizing reimbursement.
Improve medical coding competency
If medical services are rendered, providers and organizations should be paid accurately, appropriately and in a timely manner. This process relies heavily on your medical coders. Coder shortages, productivity, coding system changes, and regulations are all challenges healthcare organizations encounter. In many cases, physicians assign evaluation and management (E/M) codes with very little training.
A knowledgeable and detail-oriented medical coding team can help ensure optimal reimbursement.
Medical Coding education and certifications takes the guesswork out of training medical coders and establishing a standardized system for medical billing and coding. This proven education solution helps assess competency levels, identify knowledge gaps and develop personalized, adaptive learning pathways to increase overall proficiency. This training helps establish the necessary framework to start with concise documentation and end with the right code.
Made for busy professionals, this education solution is adaptive enough to develop coders in ICD-10, CPT, E/M, HCPCS, HCC, modifier coding and the transition of staff from one level of competency to the next, as well as training for physicians assigning their own codes.
