Chapter 2: Coding

Class Assignment 1

01/21/2020.

1.
The health information management (HIM) team at Anywhere University
Hospital (AUH) contracted with an auditing firm to perform full
assessment coding review. The results from this baseline assessment are
provided in four tables:

  • Variation Log by Type of Error
  • Variation Log by Coder
  • Variation Log by MS-DRG
  • MS-DRG Relationship Assessment

You
are the inpatient coding manager at AUH. Your director has asked you to
develop an ongoing review and monitoring schedule for the next year
based on the results from the outside review.

Include internal and
external reviews, coding in-services, physician workshops, and external
seminars/educational sessions that will be performed and or provided
for your staff. The schedule should be specific (include volumes and/or
percentages of charts to be reviewed). Keep in mind that on average it
takes 18 minutes to review one inpatient chart. Budget provides for
$15,000 for external reviews. The average cost for reviewing one
inpatient record by an external review team is $55.00 (fully loaded).

In
addition to preparing the schedule, outline how you will maintain
coding quality statistics and report them back to the HIM Director and
Compliance Committee at your facility.

How will you reward your staff members who show great improvements?

How will you reward and/or recognize that your staff has made improvements overall?

Your Coding Team consists of:

Coding Manager (you)

1 Data Quality Auditor

8 – Inpatient Coders (including Certified Coding Specialists, Registered Health Information technicians and administrators).

Results of the full assessment coding review for AUH

Two audits were performed:

1. Coding quality review by MS-DRG

2.
Compare the hospital figures to the state average and the peer
facilities. Why are an individual hospital’s figures above or below the
state average? One potential explanation could be coding or billing
errors. Brainstorm other possible explanations for why a facility’s CMI
is higher or lower than the state or its peers?

What is ICD-10? What is ICD-10-CM? Is this classification system
important for the future of healthcare reimbursement? Why or why not?

I received my essay early this morning after I had placed an order last night. I was so amazed at how quickly they did my work. The most surprising thing is that I was not asked to pay for extra due to the short notice!! I am a happy student
