Clintegrity Physician Coding provides an E/M calculator to correctly identify the assignment of these codes. It also includes Medical Necessity Edits that utilize Medicare’s Local and National Medical Review Policies in determining any problems with diagnosis and procedure linkages. Lastly, Nuance Healthcare’s Resource-Based Relative Value Scale (RBRVS) reimbursement calculation provides the estimated reimbursement for the physician service provided. Additionally, your HIM staff will access the same official ICD-9 and ICD-10 codebooks and work from the same coding guidelines. This helps ensure data integrity and reduces errors that can lead to costly audits.
