Outpatient coding service is a specialized field, in which coders review patients’ medical files, and translate the documentation into industry standard code to be used for submitting claims to third party payers. The information is also used to gather statistics, by identifying incidents of diseases, and identifying trends in treatment. In short, accurate outpatient medical coding is vital to the healthcare industry. Of course, the main purpose is to ensure that outpatient facilities are properly reimbursed for services rendered, but long after those claims are paid, the information contained therein is used to ensure quality of care industry-wide.
Outpatient facilities, understandably, expect a high level of accuracy from their medical coders, who have to abstract page upon page of written information, and translate it into standardized codes. Increasingly, medical facilities are outsourcing their outpatient coding services to companies like GlobalEdgeUSA. This eliminates a number of problems, including staff turnover and the need for ongoing training. Our coders are AACP certified, and fully conversant with the issues that affect the fiscal health of your outpatient facility.
