Paramount Health Solutions provided an initial audit of our internal coding and CDI program by conducting a retrospective review. The review provided a thorough work plan for a long-term sustained program that included ongoing pre-bill DRG audits, education, and training for our physicians and HIM staff members. I have been very pleased with the progress, and we continue to meet or exceed financial and quality milestones through PHS’s assistance with our CDI, Coding, and Quality Program
The team at Paramount Health Solutions has been instrumental in guiding and improving our CDI program. Their work in providing CDI and Provider Education has elevated our program and improved several of our Key Performance Indicators. My team and I have truly enjoyed working with PHS and appreciate them sharing their expertise and providing excellent clinical documentation consultative services.
Paramount Health Solutions (PHS) provided an assessment of our internal coding program and our clinical documentation (CDI) capture. The PHS coding assessment found multiple opportunities to improve the accuracy of our DRGs and the case mix index for the hospital. Their work has helped us better reflect in our coding the quality of care that we deliver every day! Our physicians, coding staff and billing personnel feel that this effort with our partners at Paramount Health Solutions has been extremely valuable to the organization, and they have proven great to work with as well!
When my physician partners and I first started in the DRGV/CDI business, we were on the floors sitting in the seat of a clinical documentation specialist. Now we’re on the other side of the fence, and we can easily relate our experiences to the professionals with whom we’re consulting. We encourage and rely on building good working relationships and partnerships to help them achieve best-in-class CDI processes.
