Remote Medical Coding

Remote Medical Coding Services

Remote medical coding is carried out at a facility other than the doctor's office, hospital, or treatment facility at which the services were performed. This is typically done by outsourcing your medical coding services to a separate coding company or coding specialists. The remote coding process involves sending a patient's medical records, through a secure method to a remote medical coding facility or allowing the staff to securely access the electronic record. The medical records are then reviewed and coded.

Outsourcing medical coding services can offer a number of benefits to small physicians' offices and hospitals as well as larger medical treatment facilities. For example, using remote medical coding can save both time and money, while providing more accurate coding. Remote coding is becoming more and more popular for medical treatment facilities across the country.

About iMedX’s Remote Medical Coding Services

iMedX is a medical record coding company that offers a variety of coding services to clients, including remote coding services for medical treatment facilities, hospitals, and other medical offices. These services, including hospital coding and physician coding services, are performed by skilled, professional coding specialists who are dedicated to their careers and maintain a current knowledge in this changing industry. Our remote coding services can be used on a short-term basis to accommodate certain busy times or on a regular, long-term basis as a substitution for in-house medical coding.

Cost Effective Medical Coding Solution

One benefit of using remote coding services from a coding company is that it is a cost-effective coding solution for any medical office or treatment facility. With these services, you can have your coding handled quickly and efficiency without the need for an in-house coding department. This allows you to meet changing demands and take advantage of many cost-saving benefits.

Using remote medical coding services is cost effective as it allows you to:

  • Avoid expensive travel costs: Typically, if you hire a medical coding company on a short-term basis to deal with an increased demand for coding services, you will need to pay the travel costs associated with bringing the medical coding professionals to your facility. However, with our remote solution, this unnecessary cost is eliminated.
  • Save space in your facility: Remote medical coding can allow you to send coding responsibilities to an offsite location, which will reduce the amount of space and costly equipment you need for in-house coding. This is especially important for smaller physician's offices and hospitals that are already pressed for space as it allows them to use their space for other functions.
  • Take advantage of coder efficiency and production: Using the services from a remote medical coding company will allow you access to as many or as few coders as needed. This access to a team of coding specialists can allow work to be performed more efficiently and in a timely manner without wasting money to pay for extra staff when there is less work to be done. Additionally, outsourcing minimizes the costs and management challenges associated with providing employees PTO and sick leave.

Improved Coding & Compliance

Another benefit of outsourcing medical coding to iMedX is the ability to work with our medical coding experts. At iMedX, the certified coding specialists who perform our remote medical coding services are highly trained and experienced. These coders maintain a current knowledge of changing regulations in order to provide the most accurate results.
