Rising Threats To Patient Record Integrity

Emerging Threats to Health Care Reimbursement and Quality

Your organization stands to fall short of its financial and quality goals if patient record integrity is compromised. 

Numerous factors are escalating the risks, including:

  • CMS and private payers are tightening coding specificity requirements
  • CMS to release more than 5,500 new codes
  • Qualified resource shortages to support documentation and coding
  • Ongoing confusion with HCC Coding (Hierarchical Condition Category)

Webcast Event: “Building a Community-sourced Coding Workforce Organically”

Date/Time: Thursday, September 15th, 2:00 - 3:00 PM EDT

Register Here for this event

Finding and retaining skilled and knowledgeable coders has been a challenge for many healthcare provider organizations over the past several years. The increased complexity of ICD-10 has challenged coders to expand their knowledgebase significantly. Healthcare organizations have not only found it difficult to assess a coder's true applicable knowledge, but also to effectively manage staff competency and growth.

Wake Forest Baptist Health (Wake Forest), in partnership with Precyse University™, has embarked on a program to develop its own coding staff organically. Through a standardized competency management program that leverages eLearning, classroom instruction, and analytics, Wake Forest is employing a “grow your own” approach to develop a coding staff from Community College Graduates and local armed forces veterans. This project is aimed at reducing dependency on contract coders, improving quality, reducing cost, and benefiting the local community.

Learning Objectives

  • Understand the nature of Wake Forest's struggle to attract and maintain a skilled coder workforce
  • Learn about Wake Forest's approach for creating an ongoing competency management
  • Understand how to deploy a “grow your own approach” to creating and maintaining a coder workforce
