CodeR at Maryvale Private Hospital

iMedX delivers a remote coding solution providing a continuous service to Maryvale Private Hospital through CodeR.

CodeR is a streamlined solution enabling end-to-end remote clinical coding & auditing of paper records. The solution utilises proprietary technology CodeR, a secure info input platform that connects to any scanner and a workflow management platform that stores electronic records for Clinical Coders/Auditors to access.

Maryvale Private Hospital is situated in Morwell in Victoria’s Latrobe Valley and services the Gippsland municipalities of East Gippsland, Wellington, Latrobe, Baw Baw, South Gippsland and Bass Coast. With 46 beds, Maryvale is an acute medical and surgical hospital providing a comprehensive range of medical, surgical and consulting services. The hospital has cared for over 55,000 patients since 1991.

Being a regional hospital with paper records, Maryvale Private Hospital historically needed coding staff onsite to complete the clinical coding. In 2020, the hospital had both coders apply for long service leave for extended periods of time. With this challenge and the need for onsite coding due to paper records there was a risk that the coding turnaround time would increase thus interrupting the timeliness of the revenue stream.

Through the iMedX capability to provide CodeR, our HIS expertise, plus continuous clinical coding service, iMedX was able to effectively fulfil the hospital’s requirements.

“On behalf of the team at Maryvale Private Hospital, we’ve really valued the contribution the iMedX team have made through our partnership. The CodeR platform was simple to learn and implement, providing our staff reliable and experienced clinical coding support for the remote coding of our paper records. The iMedX team are able to view the records easily and quickly through CodeR and then enter the accurate codes directly into our PAS. We have also found it especially valuable being able to leverage the experience of the iMedX team to support us with our Coding Auditing and with their knowledge of the Private Health sector funding model. Thank you iMedX team.”  Susan Chan, Finance Manager
