DOES THESE SOUND FAMILIAR?
Infusion stop times either not being recorded or being estimated by nurses — causing you to not get paid what you’re owed.
Compliance issues from documentation not matching billing.
A high number of coders “thrown” at infusion issues in order to avoid bottlenecks and lag time.
Hydration therapies not being recorded or being underreported.
THESE INFUSION CODING PROBLEMS ARE UNNECESSARY AND THEY LEAVE MONEY ON THE TABLE!
ONE HOSPITAL FOUND THAT IT HAD INCORRECTLY CODED 50% OF ITS INFUSION ENCOUNTERS.
ANOTHER HOSPITAL FOUND THAT 70% OF ITS HYDRATION THERAPIES IN THEIR EMERGENCY ROOM DID NOT HAVE STOP TIMES.
A MAJOR CANCER CENTER FOUND MILLIONS OF DOLLARS IN NEW REVENUE FROM MORE ACCURATE INFUSION TIMES.
HERE’S HOW TO FIX THOSE PROBLEMS.
HERE’S HOW IT WORKS.
- The infusion data — including patient information, start/stop times and drugs used — is automatically pulled from the documentation in the EHR.
- That data is then converted into the appropriate codes — including applying the infusion hierarchy.
- Those 100% accurate codes are then sent directly to billing.
