TINLEY PARK, Ill.--(SPi Healthcare, the leading integrated revenue cycle and clinical documentation improvement firm, today announced that they will be at the American Health Information Management Association’s (AHIMA) Convention to help provider organizations with the challenges associated with the ICD-10 deadline – among other increasing coding performance and compliance issues.)--
“The journey can be very long for children battling cancer, so we are excited to benefit from SPi Healthcare’s AHIMA promotion as it will help only us to financially assist more families with the travel expenses associated with getting the cancer care needed for their child”
SPi Healthcare will be showcasing their health information improvement (HIM) capabilities including coding performance improvement, clinical documentation improvement, and coding education for ICD-10 in AHIMA booth #842
In addition to the previously mentioned services, SPi Healthcare can help provider organizations prepare for a RAC audit as more and more are faced with CMS, state, and local Medicare/Medicaid integrity programs for reimbursement fraud. In fact, according to a recent American Hospital Association survey:
- About $741 million in denials were reported through Q1 2012, nearly double the amount of those in Q4 2011
- The average dollar amount of a complex denial was $5,839
- Outpatient billing errors were cited as the top reason for RAC automated denials
“In the current coding and compliance environment, a physician’s knowledge of clinical documentation requirements is critical to the financial health of any organization in our health system today,” said Julia Tynan, vice president of hospital services for SPi Healthcare. “SPi Healthcare is uniquely qualified to assist physicians and healthcare care organizations with our success in physician revenue cycle and proven experience in coding and clinical documentation.”
