Optimizing Revenue and Efficiency: Strategies for Identifying High-Value Codes and Charts in Prospective Coding


The effectiveness of prospective coding hinges on precise chart selection, yet numerous hospitals encounter challenges. Misconceptions about choosing the right charts often contribute to this struggle. Many hospitals prioritize high-revenue Fee-for-Service patients, overlooking the potential lack of HCC linkage in these ICDs, leading to suboptimal revenue outcomes. Relying on year-to-year ICD comparisons and delta-based prospective coding can result in overlooked ICDs with already covered HCCs. These challenges in prospective coding strategies lead to inefficient resource use and suboptimal revenue outcomes. A proactive approach is crucial to enhance revenue accuracy, streamline prospective coding, and reduce unnecessary coding costs.

Our Solution:

Leveraging sophisticated risk models, our advanced system precisely analyzes individual ICDs from both current and past fiscal year claims, and calculates Risk Adjustment Factor (RAF) Scores and forecasts Medicare Advantage (MA) payments for each ICD/HCC, generating comprehensive revenue impact analysis reports. Efficiently filtering high-revenue HCCs and charts, these tools optimize prospective coding and CDI efforts, enabling hospitals to confidently select and target high-revenue charts and HCCs. This results in a significant reduction in coding and CDI costs, all without requiring PHI and charts.
