As healthcare leaders, access to quality, timely data is imperative for the financial and operational success of an organization.
According to a recent survey posted in Becker’s Hospital Review of hospital information technology executives, 80% do not trust that their electronic health record (EHR) data is reliable
for decision making. Of that same group, 49% said “poor or slow decision making is the greatest potential financial consequence of low-quality data.”
As healthcare leaders, access to quality, timely data is imperative for the financial and operational success of an organization. The old adage “garbage in, garbage out” is completely accurate. To ensure that the correct information is input into hospital EHRs, analyses must be conducted to determine areas of concern.
Data Transparency Leads to Quality Data
Coding quality reviews are a valuable tool for educating both physicians and coders in an effort to improve coding quality, compliance and reimbursement. JTS’ team of trained auditors and coders can ensure optimal coding quality and reduce the potential of lost reimbursement, resulting in improved cash flow. Tools and readily available metrics for clear decision making and staff training, however, are a critical part of an optimized revenue cycle giving insight into the data housed in the EHR.
