Hello himagine blog subscribers! I thought you would be interested in registering for a webinar we are hosting on September 13th. As part of our "Learn from the Pros" series, the session is titled "How to Improve Coding Compliance and Gain Physician Buy-In" and will be hosted by Carla Cashio, Executive Director, Chief Compliance Officer at DeKalb Medical and myself.
"Outsourced coders are too expensive", "My internal coding resources are much less expensive than external coders" are statements I hear frequently from HIM leaders. Having worked on both sides of the fence as a HIM department lead on the provider side and now as Chief Operating Officer for himagine it struck me; has this cost gap between internal and external coders ever been quantified or is this more of a perception?
