Coding Strategies to Improve Revenue Cycle Performance

Tuesday, March 21st, 2017 | 1:00pm - 2:00pm CT

High quality coding is more critical for providers than ever before given the continued evolution to value and risk based care versus traditional fee for service models as well as having more complex code sets due to ICD-10. The type of resources and expertise needed to perform effectively in this new environment is fundamentally different than in the past. A strategic partnership with an outsource coding organization can help facilities successfully navigate through these challenges, deliver higher quality coding, and ultimately improve revenue cycle performance.

Learning Points:

  • How to assess the performance of your coding operation and clinical documentation processes to determine if there are any deficiencies and opportunities for improvement.
  • How to establish a more strategic quality assurance plan to evaluate ongoing performance.
  • Best practices for leveraging outsource vendors to achieve your overall objectives.
