TitleJustCoding's Practical Guide to Coding Management

Product Description

ICD-10's arrival changed more than code selection it s also brought challenges related to coder productivity, coding quality and accuracy, staffing shortages, coder education and training, and the increased need for auditing. The old rules and standards for running a department no longer apply, and coding managers must update their efforts, just as coders themselves have. This book gives coding managers new benchmarks, standards, and tips to ensure they're running an effective coding department. It provides strategies for coder retention, best practices to balance internal and outsourced coders, and tips for managing on-site and remote staff. The book also provides much-needed information for managers on how to educate their teams on coding's role within the revenue cycle.
