Remote Medical Coding

All physicians, surgeons, hospitals and ambulatory surgical centers need accurate medical coding and surgical coding for proper payment, but specialists are most acutely in need of precise coding to optimize their collections. Unfortunately, physicians themselves are often suboptimal coders. Coding is an entirely separate fund of knowledge from knowing how to deliver complex medical services. Expertise in one has nothing to do with the other. Our coding analyses have demonstrated this time and time again.

Secretaries and billing clerks are often assigned the additional task of surgical coding, yet they rarely have formal training in the clinical issues and complex rules regulations that accurate coding demands. Is it wise to delegate this crucial function to someone who is under trained, undersupervised and overworked? What other business delegates the most important financial and legal functions to the employee with the least formal training?

Medical school faculty practice plans, hospitals, ambulatory surgery centers, billing companies, and private medical practices of all sizes are among the many clients of THE CODING NETWORK, LLC. These organizations realize that proper medical coding and surgical coding directly relates to increases in their own bottom lines and compliance with the law.
