Outsourced ICD-9 Coding Services and OASIS-C1 Review

With today's technology, outsourcing your Home Health ICD-9 coding and OASIS-C1 review has become a simple and valuable option for your agency.  HealthCare Strategies' well trained and edcuated coding staff can provide you with access to top-level, experienced coders at a fraction of the cost.  Our prompt turn around time for each assessment will help ensure that reimbursement and productivity stay at a level you expect.

Outsourcing removes the burden of staffing issues like time off for vacation or personnel shortages that can result in delays of coding and ultimately decreasing cash flow for your agency.  Outsourcing also replaces the time you invest in your employees with on-going training on new regulations that impact ICD-9 coding and OASIS.  Why not let HealthCare Strategies carry this burden for you? 

ICD-10 implementation begins October 1, 2015 with mandatory dual coding for August & September, 2015. Home Health and Hospice RN's find ICD-9 difficult at best,but with ICD-10 they will find it even more difficult with out the necessary education and training. Don't delay, select your outsource agency for ICD-10 readiness!

Our coding staff is well trained and edcuated on the latest changes with regulations that impact your reimbursement and compliance with home health patient claims.  We invest the time and resources in to training our coders so you don't have to. HealthCare Strategies coders are cross-trained in multiple Electronic Medical Record software systems and are certified in one or more OASIS or Home Health coding certifications. A number of our coders achieved their HCS-D ICD-10 certifications in 2014 in preparation for the implementation. 

Our goal is to customize a solution that meets your needs.  Our services range from temporary help when staffing shortages occur to a full service program that allows your clinicians to focus on what you do best....care for the patient.
