Clinical Documentation

Our team consists of professional & experienced Home Health RN coding specialists as well as certified coders.

If the clinical documentation is not able to clearly and accurately convey a patient’s specific care plan, it can lead to a wide range of potential issues for any home health company or agency. Some common issues due to incorrect clinical documentation include increase risk of audits, reduced reimbursement, increased takebacks, issues with patient safety, improper care coordination, and poor quality of referral sources.

We code at multiple levels, based on agency requirements. These levels include:

Level 2

Along with Level 1 processing, additional star M-Items such as 1028, 1308, 1350 and all M-Items related to Wounds, Activities of Daily Living (ADLs) and Medications are reviewed and corrected if required.
