MEDICAL CODING FOR HOSPITAL FACILITIES

Some hospitals, specifically, smaller community hospitals and specialty facilities, can find it difficult to hire and maintain a staff of qualified and experienced hospital coders. Therefore, many hospitals are forced to offer huge sign-on bonuses and other incentives in order to hire employees. By outsourcing medical coding services to a hospital coding company, hospitals and other facilities can reduce the costs of hiring medical coding experts as well as reduce or eliminate the other expenses associated with maintaining a staff of coding experts, while benefiting from the experience of certified coding specialists.

Outsourcing hospital coding services to a coding company can be beneficial for a variety of types of hospitals and treatment facilities including:

  • Community Hospitals
  • Hospitals Located in Rural Areas with Limited Labor Markets
  • Privately Owned Hospital Facilities
  • Specialty Hospitals
  • Large Hospital Networks
  • Critical Access Hospitals (CAHs)
