In today’s HIM environment, performing audits is becoming increasingly more important due to ICD-10 and the growing complexity of coding, as well as the changes in reimbursement methodologies for hospitals and physicians.
Ovation’s Quality Audit Services assess the accuracy of our client’s coding to mitigate the potential for non-compliance; resulting in overpayments and/or underpayments. Our Quality Audit Services include the following and can be performed pre-or-post bill:
- DRG Audits
- APC Audits
- Physician Services Audits
- Risk-Adjusted Services Audit
Ovation’s audit team is highly skilled, averaging over 23 years of auditing and coding experience in their specialty areas and have obtained a minimum of one coding credential related to their specialty, either AHIMA or AAPC. With a heavy focus on education and continuous dialogue, our clients receive detailed reporting to help track, trend, and monitor performance and potential areas of improvement with their internal HIM staff and/or physician documentation needs and requirements.
