INFUSION CODING HEADACHES

Infusion coding is one of the most complex billing environments in hospitals today. Besides the complicated hierarchy in which services must be coded, converting start and stop times requires careful attention to detail and deep knowledge. Underreporting times is not uncommon.

The reality is — hospitals often miss revenue opportunities or have compliance issues from insufficient infusion coding.

A BETTER INFUSION CODING SOLUTION

What if there was a different way?

What if there was sophisticated software that automatically captured the start/stop times from the EHR, then automatically converted the times into accurate code, and then sent the codes directly to billing — with no human intervention anywhere along the process?

That software is Charge Capture INFUSION from MedAptus.

Charge Capture INFUSION is the only software in healthcare today that is fully computer generated from beginning to end. This means nurses can spend more time with patients and not worry about incorrect codes or billing. And this means coders can be re-assigned to more critically important tasks.

THE BENEFITS OF COMPUTER-GENERATED INFUSION CODING

  • 100% compliance. Exactly match your billing codes with your documentation.
  • 100% efficiency. Re-purpose coders. Give nurses more patient time.
  • Completeness of charge. Always get paid for exactly what you do.
  • Coding training eliminated.
  • Paper costs eliminated.
  • Generate more revenue. Discover underreported infusion times.

AN INFUSION CODING SUCCESS STORY

A well-known cancer center implemented Charge Capture INFUSION as part of its effort to improve its operations.  The result — $3.4 million in new revenue in eight months. In addition, the center reduced its coders from 6 people to 2 for 130,000 infusion events.

There’s simply no need to manually convert start and stop times into code anymore or use a paper-based tracking system.

Charge Capture INFUSION does it automatically and accurately – helping hospitals avoid coding errors and find new revenue.
