How it Works
Coding Teams Make Your Life Easy
Our 1-2-3 process:
1 – Needs Analysis
First we ascertain settings, specialties, volume, coding, & abstracting based on your specific needs.
2 – Contract
We go over pricing + SLA, determining your costs and savings.
3 – Team Set-Up
Specialist coders are given an orientation based on your processes, ensuring that everyone works together optimally.
We guarantee accuracy and you will have dedicated in-house coding supervisors so that operations will proceed smoothly.
With instant access to a coding team you can prevent backlogs before they begin. We manage and train each team on the ins and outs of your specific organization.
Our coding teams are customized to your hospital’s needs. We can take on full or partial department outsourcing, become a fill-in program for short and long term leaves, or just come to your aid in the hard times when deadlines are looming.
Per-record billing guarantees an efficient billing cycle that is easy to predict, easy to understand, and easy to manage.
There is no cost to set up a coding team. Since we bill per record, we only charge you for work performed, and you are not charged for any error that affects billing.
How can Coding Teams be used?
Teams can be used in any way, shape, or form as needed. Teams can be used as a backlog service for any specialty, as a supplement to any department, or as a way to manage backlog projects. They can be used as an interim solution until you are able to fill a permanent candidate, or as your managed coding team.
We can work alongside existing staffing companies, or within or around an MSP program. The point is you can use the teams as much or as little as you want for any department across the hospital system. We can be a backup resource, a regular supplement to your existing in-house coders, or your fully outsourced coding solution.
Do you have minimum and maximum requirements?
Codebusters offers the most flexible service available anywhere – there are no minimum or maximum requirements to have a coding team in place.
We work with you across the scale, whether you’re a small rural hospital with 2 full-time medical coders that would like to have a team in place in case of a leave of absence, or a large city hospital looking to outsource all of its coding. We can handle and facilitate both large and small record volumes.
Full department outsourcing?
Codebusters can provide full, partial, and specific department outsourcing. If you elect to use us as your primary support staff, we can incorporate your existing full-time staff as well as coding supervisors into our team.
We offer extremely competitive compensation and benefits to full-time employees. Because of the difficulties and complexities of ICD-10, more and more facilities are looking to outsource, and Codebusters can help you achieve your department’s goals.
How is work monitored?
Work is monitored using our custom workforce platform. When a coder starts working on a record, they document the medical record number and type, and that becomes immediately visible to the hospital. Once the coder has completed the record they check it off as being completed, and again the status is visible in real-time for the hospital. Notes and comments are also tracked by the system to ensure that all records are completed correctly and efficiently.
We also have strict quality assurance guarantees. In addition to this, any work with errors that result in billing issues will be refunded.
There is no cost to set up the coding teams, and Codebusters organizes, on-boards, and trains at zero cost to the facility.
Since we bill per record you only pay for work performed correctly. If we make an error that affects billing, we either fix it immediately at no charge, or if the correction is made on your side, we will not charge you for that record. Our software makes it very easy to flag records where you feel there is a dispute.
We are extremely excited about our new service offering. This solution is the first of its kind in the HIM industry. From the outset, accessibility for our clients and associates is our number one priority. This is a just-in-time, sometimes, or all the time coding solution.
The heart of this Next Generation solution is a proprietary web-based application, combining workflow management, invoicing, and applicant tracking. We realized fairly quickly that we had to build our own platform as nothing currently available could be customized to meet our feature requests or GUI requirements. We at Codebusters feel that this is a fundamental game changer in our space, blurring the lines between contract staffing, outsourcing, and project management – in a highly flexible package that can be molded to any client’s needs.
No doubt many industries are going through their own on-demand workforce revolutions, but the specific shape and execution must be custom tailored for each end product/service. With our Coding Teams, we are finally able to give both clients and medical coders exactly what they want at this critical time in our industry.
