Medical Coding and Clinical Documentation Improvements (CDI)

Coding

It is an ongoing challenge to stay ahead of coding demands. ICD-10 training and testing requirements and dual-coding demands are straining the capacity of most organizations, while the coding specificity required by ICD-10 makes maintaining high data-quality standards even more critical and more difficult. With GreenPoint, you can offload routine services, expand your capacity, and move your experienced coding resources onto critical inpatient and/or ICD-10 preparation programs.

Our expert outpatient medical-coding services are backed by our cloud-based clinical documentation platform; our staff delivers quality documentation and meets your coding and compliancy demands—promoting faster, more accurate revenue realization. This includes Observation, Procedural, Emergency Department(ED)/Urgent Care, Specialty Outpatient, and Diagnostic coding services.

GreenPoint outpatient health-care coding services help organizations:

  • Support dual-coding efforts with overflow staffing
  • Scale up to offset ICD-10 productivity impacts and demand spikes from third parties
  • Reduce Discharged Not Final Billed (DNFB) and accounts receivable days
  • Obtain appropriate reimbursement and reduce delays
  • Eliminate staffing shortages and gaps in staffing
  • Maintain coding productivity and cash flows
  • Improve compliance and data quality

The challenge of transitioning to new systems such as the current ICD-10 and its more than 14,400 codes is facing every health-care organization, and GreenPoint can help.

Clinical Documentation Improvements (CDI)

Accurate clinical documentation of patient encounters is the foundation for appropriate reimbursement and quality reporting.

As health-care reform moves toward quality-driven reimbursement, hospitals and physicians will have to justify treatments and demonstrate satisfactory quality outcomes. Consistent, complete, and accurate clinical documentation is the key to the economic health of the hospital.

Health-care providers need automated, intuitive tools to sustain their initiatives without shortchanging patient care or jeopardizing operating margins. GreenPoint can help.
