Coding Department Redesign

Sometimes a health care organization’s revenue cycle challenges come down to how its coding department is structured, its processes and procedures, and its management of both human and technology resources.

Our team can provide a complete assessment of your coding department that’s focused on identifying areas of inefficiency, barriers, and risks. We consider existing systems with the aim of identifying gaps needing redesign or clarification, then compare yours against industry standard practices. Our assessment may include:

  • Observations and recommendations for improvement
  • Recommended changes to the staffing model
  • Criteria or policies and procedures for provider expectations relating to documentation, coding functions, and approval
  • Best practices for monitoring progress
  • Priorities and risks of each recommendation
  • Project plan for remediation based on outstanding tasks
  • Appropriate coding department production standards by specialty for median and best industry standards
