AQuity Clinical Coding Best Practices
When choosing an outsourced Medical Coding solutions provider, it’s critical to limit your search to services who place medical coder certification and ongoing training to keep up with regulation changes at the top of their priority list. Other outsourced coding service best practices followed by AQuity include:
Quality Assurance Processes
Regular audits of statistically valid samplings of each medical coder’s production are essential. Audit results drive additional training and support to ensure optimal performance. The AQuity QA program has evolved over the years to ensure quality results for our customers as well as positive career development support for our staff.
Transparent Reporting and Analytics
Regular reporting for productivity, quality, and turnaround time performance is just the start. Detailed analytics for denials and appeals management must be included to ensure revenue cycle efficiency. In addition to regular reporting, the AQuity Coding services team meets with clients regularly to discuss performance results and corrective action plans as needed.
Data Security and Compliance
Robust security measures are essential for any outsources service provider. Established policies and procedures are the bare minimum while annual third-party audits have become the norm. AQuity undergoes annual SOC 2 Type 2, ISO 27001, and ISO 9001 third-party audits to confirm our security posture, policies, and procedures to provide clients with necessary peace of mind.
Clear Communications / Continuous Feedback/Process Improvement
Service Level Agreements (SLAs) set expectations for the scope of specialties and volumes of charts to be handled, however, open two-way communications are needed to stay ahead of the inevitable census variations and shift coverages. AQuity prides itself in being known for maintaining open lines of communications to ensure positive collaboration and ongoing engagement satisfaction.
Continuous Monitoring of Regulation Changes
Coding regulations are updated regularly and ensuring compliance with those changes requires constant monitoring of government sites. Making sure each medical coder is aware of pending regulation changes and properly trained to adjust their coding practices accordingly is a hallmark of AQuity Coding services, including increased QA efforts for impacted code sets.
