Dr. Mac Knight joins Mark to discuss Coker’s comprehensive approach to coding, compliance and clinical documentation known as revenue and quality integrity (RQI). As a clinician, Dr. Knight is familiar with the challenges physicians face during the clinical documentation process and importance of proper coding from both a compliance and billing standpoint.
Mark and Dr. Knight explain the RQI process and discuss the importance of accurately coding and completing clinical documentation. They examine the different types of coding (procedural, outpatient, inpatient, technical, etc.) and regulatory compliance as well as discuss the importance of regular coding audits.
They explain how clinical documentation plays a role in due diligence processes, value-based healthcare reimbursement and a comprehensive compliance strategy. Mark and Dr. Knight provide insight on how RQI ultimately affects all facets of any healthcare organization.
