CardiologyCoder.Com is exclusively dedicated to helping organizations achieve full charge capture and regulatory compliance for cardiology services. Many unique and illogical rules dictate what must be done to achieve these complementary goals; we help organizations thrive at this endeavor.
- Physician Education: Medical documentation must support each service that is reported. If doctors don’t use the right words or if they are uncertain of the documentation standard, money will fall through the cracks and the organization will be exposed to regulatory liability. We teach physicians to optimally document services and help them understand how documentation impacts revenue. Programs are tailored to fit the audience and typically include: coronary angiography and interventions, pacemaker/defibrillator related services, peripheral vascular angiography and interventions, electrophysiology, echocardiography, nuclear imaging, evaluation and management services, working with mid-level providers, and diagnosis coding (ICD-9 & ICD-10).
- Chart Audits: You can’t confirm full charge capture and regulatory compliance without a qualified assessment of documentation and coding. Our audit reports provide physicians with patient-by-patient feedback regarding identified proficiencies and areas that need attention. We also provide best-practice recommendations to improve the accuracy and effectiveness of future documentation. Results are presented in a graphic-rich formal report so readers can efficiently understand the issues and recommendations. We can work independently, with your Compliance Officer, or through your designated law firm. Having an audit conducted at least annually helps facilitate full charge capture and it protects your organization from the most significant Fraud and Abuse Penalties.
- Staff Training: We offer an extensive array of web conferences that cultivate the proficiency of billing staff. Web conferences may be pre-aproved for both Certified Professional Coder (CPC) and Certified Cardiology Coder (CCC) continuing education units.
