Coding & Compliance
Optimal charge capture is getting harder
Let Salud do the coding
The new ICD-10 system has vastly expanded the number of codes, slowing the coding process and requiring far more specific clinical documentation, which is often wrong or incomplete. Experienced coders are hard to find and retain. And staff training is an administrative burden. All of this is putting needless pressure on revenue.
Salud’s coding solutions team solves staffing challenges and improves cash flow through timely claims processing. Our comprehensive coding services help minimize your compliance risk and accurately reflect the complexity of care you provide. We can provide short- or long-term outsourced coding, training or resource augmentation, either onsite or remote. We also provide interim management of coding departments. Our certified coders and trainers help clients achieve a 95% coding accuracy rate.
