It’s no secret that medical coding errors lead to claim rejections, resulting in delayed reimbursement and loss of revenue. Invalid codes are causative for most denials in claim submissions. Inaccurate medical coding fails to provide a real picture of the patient’s medical history. Accurate medical coding eliminates the scope of claim denials and rejections, thus boosting revenue growth and strengthening the revenue cycle management process.
ScribeEMR employs comprehensive, rigorous processes in delivering accurate medical coding, ensuring that clinicians and healthcare providers are adequately reimbursed for the services they provide. We have recruit highly-skilled, certified medical coders that help healthcare facilities streamline their medical coding and billing, optimizing their cash flow and revenue cycle.
