Are Your Coders Working Hard…or Hardly Working?
Softek recently released a new control, HIM Productivity, which gives Cerner® clients with Cerner Patient Accounting® full visibility into the productivity of each coder within the HIM department. This control also provides Cerner® clients visibility into their active held encounters due to “waiting for coding” and the associated Task Aging to prioritize work. In addition to viewing the active held encounters, the HIM Productivity control also shows the actions and tasks assigned, being worked, and completed by the HIM personnel. With this enhanced visibility, clients can now see what coding needs to be finalized to continue the billing process and HIM management can better understand the work that their coders are doing. The productivity of HIM coders directly affects how hospitals generate revenue and reimbursement and this control gives clients the tools needed to optimize HIM workflows and maximize revenue for the organization. To learn more about this tool, contact Softek.
