Acusis® Debuts Medical Coding Services
Today Acusis® announces its newest service offering, Medical Coding. Acusis® will now provide coding services to help medical organizations comply with the upcoming ICD-10 mandate.
The ICD-10 mandate will introduce tens of thousands of new codes for medical procedures, thereby impacting record keeping, billing, staff productivity and efficiency for medical facilities. In an October 2014 Modern Healthcare article, Danielle Reno, ICD-10 director at Sutter Health, Sacramento, California, warned of a 50% decrease in coder productivity that can go on for six to nine months. Currently, the medical transcription services that Acusis® offers already provide great aid to those facilities in need of workforce assistance. Acusis® has now applied their success in that side of the arena to their new coding services.
“Our current transcription clients have expressed concern about the upcoming ICD-10 mandate and how it will impact their workforce needs. With the customer-centric culture of Acusis, we wanted to offer medical coding in order to give our clients a more comprehensive service.” said Larry Jackson, CFO at Acusis® .
“Leveraging what Acusis® does well is exciting,” said Jackson. “In this case, more coding is required in the near future. Acusis® has consistently demonstrated its ability to ramp up human capital and technology while maintaining high quality. Since 2001, we have earned the trust of our clients by providing an outstanding service. This is evident from our consistently high ranking in the yearly KLAS® survey. Applying these same quality and service processes to coding is exciting for our team.”
