Coding Audits

Incorrect coding leads to compliance issues, reduced reimbursement, and increased payer audits and denials. And with the introduction of ICD-10, more frequent coding audits are required to quickly remediate deficiencies in clinical documentation or coder knowledge. For example, industry experts now suggest quarterly external coding audits alongside ongoing, internal reviews.
