Medical Coding – himagine’s coding expertise encompasses every healthcare setting, from large IDN’s to rural hospitals, academic medical centers, specialty hospitals, independent physician organizations, critical access hospitals, and more. Within those environments we provide coding wherever patient charts are generated, including:
- Emergency Department
- Evaluation & Management (E&M)
- Diagnosis-Related Group (DRG)
Audit – himagine audits more than 110 million charts annually. We use inferential statistical analysis and modeling to identify records most likely to contain an error, those with the highest dollar value, those with a high unspecified diagnosis capture rate, and an even distribution of all other chart types. We then focus audit resources on those charts to enable even greater coding quality and reduced compliance risk.
CDI – Today, having the most complete and accurate documentation is the core of overall quality of care. himagine’s comprehensive CDI programs, customized for your organization, workflow, service lines, and goals, improve clinical data used for patient safety, quality scorecards, research, and provide unimpeachable accuracy about reimbursement for resources used and services provided.
Registry – himagine provides registrars to support all types of registries, including Cancer/Tumor, Stroke, Trauma, Chest Pain, and Bone Marrow. Managed by trauma registry experts, our solution includes rigorous, consistent monitoring of registrar quality and productivity and is a simpler, more powerful alternative to the transactional, fragmented approach of traditional staffing solutions.
