Four Principles to Help RCM Coding Teams Succeed
BEDFORD, MASSACHUSETTS – January 7, 2020 – To assist revenue cycle and finance leaders in a continuously evolving industry facing unparalleled challenges and opportunities, Libman Education has released a whitepaper: “Does your Coding Team Deliver on your Promises To your Clients? Four Principles to Help your Coding Team Succeed.” Clinical documentation and coding are often cited as one of the areas of greatest revenue cycle opportunity. The whitepaper provides a road map for RCM organizations to carefully plan, evaluate and improve their coding function, providing an immediate impact on the value proposition they offer to clients.
The whitepaper asks RCM organizations to consider the following:
- Are your coders meeting your exacting accuracy rates and productivity standards?
- Having hired qualified coders, how do you ensure their skills stay sharp and up-to-date?
- Are your coders fully versed in the rules that govern accurate and complete coding resulting in proper reimbursement?
- Are your coders continuing to develop their skills and expand both their areas of competence and their value to your organization?
“All RCM organizations promise attractive levels of performance. Their clients, hospitals and provider groups, are left trying to decide which firm is best for them. RCM organizations can differentiate themselves from the competitive landscape by demonstrating their commitment to continuous improvement of their coding staff skills. To be a contender in the competitive RCM industry, it is not enough to offer a service; it must be a top performing service with a proven track record,” according to Stacy Swartz, RHIA, CCS, CPC, the whitepaper author.
