At IKS, we appreciate the burden providers carry when they enter the exam room. That’s why whenever possible we look to add support to ensure safety, accuracy and efficiency to help providers focus on patients. Despite best efforts, the various coding sets including E&M/CPT, ICD-10, and HCC, mean visits get incorrectly documented while providers strive to focus on patients. IKS employs a dedicated team of coders who will provide feedback, training and support to support providers in improving their coding for the long term. Our objective is to help participating providers successfully enhance clinical documentation and improve coding accuracy.
Without support, organizations are left vulnerable in many ways:
– Dollars Left on the Table
– Charge Lag
– Denial Rate
– Compliance Issues
– Medical Malpractice
– Frustrated Physicians
