Date:3/26/2013

ALLENTOWN, Pa., March 26, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- H.I.M. ON CALL, a technology-driven outsourced services company for health information management (HIM), coding and revenue cycle, announces the availability of its dual coding services for hospitals migrating from ICD-9 to ICD-10. Dual Coding is a precursor to end-to-end testing of ICD-10. Payers want to test with providers that can submit ICD-10 codes. The new, dual coding service from H.I.M. ON CALL provides the people, processes and technology required for dual coding and supports ICD-10 testing with payers. The announcement was made by Manny Pena , RHIA, President, H.I.M. ON CALL.

Expert, outsourced coders from H.I.M. ON CALL perform ICD-10 coding via remote or onsite options; allowing the hospitals' internal coding team to focus on day-to-day production or ICD-10 training, education and ramp-up.  The firm generates dual coding data output and analytics to identify gaps in clinical documentation for ICD-10. Back-up ICD-9 coding services are also available.

"Dual Coding's data and analytics support our customers' clinical documentation improvement (CDI) ramp-up for ICD-10," explains Pena. Specific documentation weaknesses and target areas for revenue loss under ICD-10 are identified.  Some of the features of the new dual coding service include:

  • Perform dual coding (ICD-9 and ICD-10) for up to one year prior to October 1, 2014.
  • Support end-to-end testing initiatives by providing ICD-10 coded cases.
  • Provide monthly summary, data and analytics of CDI issues (ICD-9 and ICD-10).

"In addition to opening the door for end-to-end payer testing, our data and analytics are a tremendous support to ICD-10 teams," adds Karen Karaban , RHIT, CCS, Director of Coding Integrity at H.I.M. ON CALL.  Accurate, complete and specific clinical documentation is the foundation for correct reimbursement, quality reporting and continuing care. The H.I.M. ON CALL service provides a summary of documentation findings by ICD-10-CM/PCS chapter, patient type, medical service and physician. The potential financial impact due to the lack of specificity in the documentation is also identified with actual and projected decreases in coding productivity by patient type and medical service.

More information about the dual coding service can be viewed at the firm's blog or by contacting Joseph J. Gurrieri, RHIA, CHP, Vice President & COO at: 610.435.5724 Ext. 131.
