Industry changes are leading more and more provider organizations to capture Charge information—CPT and ICD-10 codes—in the EMR.
But physicians are clinical experts, not billing and coding specialists. This forces medical groups to manually review all charges passing from the EMR for billing and coding accuracy—which adds time, effort, and expense to the charge capture process.
We have a better way.
While traditional claim scrubbers were valuable in the past, they’ve become outdated and inadequate. That’s because they sit at the back-end of the process, after charge transactions have been posted to your revenue cycle management system (RCM)—and in today’s dynamic and complex healthcare world, that’s simply too late.
Instead, RCxRules works on the front end of your process, automatically reviewing and correcting Charges before they hit your revenue cycle management system (RCM). By leveraging a robust data model and modern technology RCxRules easily integrates with your existing EMR and RCM system.
This game-changing advantage virtually eliminates the need for time-consuming Charge correction and reposting.
The RCxRules system reviews Charges not only against industry-standard requirements—but against customized, high-value rules tailored to your organization’s specific needs.
Then our unique Auto Correct functionality automatically fixes routine issues to ensure that clinical encounters are appropriately and compliantly formatted to meet your payers’ billing and administrative requirements.
Our industry-leading healthcare rules engine is purpose-built to help medical groups get paid faster with less effort—and simple and efficient rule creation is an essential component of this objective. Leveraging modern technology allows RCxRules users to quickly and efficiently write customer-specific rules.
By leveraging both industry-standard rules and tailored, high-value rules customized to your unique requirements, RCxRules significantly accelerates the process of submitting clean, payment-ready charges to your payers. Faster charge processing and reduced denials translate to increased reimbursements and improved payment velocity.
With RCxRules, you get paid faster with less effort.
The process for risk scoring and HCC coding may sound confusing, but at its core, HCC coding is based on good clinical practice. Providers have been delivering great patient care for decades, but to excel in this new world of Risk Adjustment and HCC coding, they also must ensure that the care their patients receive is fully documented in the medical record—and that the diagnosis coding is comprehensive.
To conquer HCC coding, the patient’s ICD-10 diagnosis profile must be robust.
That’s where RCxRules comes in. We make sure your patient’s diagnosis profile is appropriate, complete and specific.
Hierarchical Condition Categories (HCCs) are derived from the underlying ICD-10 codes documented on the encounter. For medical groups to excel at HCC coding, two important things must happen.
First, the provider must document whether a patient’s chronic conditions impacted the encounter—and if so, how. Second, the coder must ensure that the ICD-10 codes on the claim accurately and completely represent what is in the clinical note—because payers use the underlying ICD-10 codes submitted on claims to calculate the HCC scores, which in turn determine your reimbursements.
REMEMBER: Every inaccurate or insufficiently specific diagnosis code on a claim reduces your patient’s risk adjustment (RAF) score and your ability to collect appropriate reimbursement in the future
RCxRules’ HCC solution contains the complete set of CMS Diagnosis coding rules and the full mapping of ICD-10 codes to the Hierarchical Condition Categories.
Our solution sits between your clinical system and your revenue cycle management (RCM) system, automating the review of every encounter that leaves your EMR in real time. This ensures that clinical encounters have the appropriate and specific diagnosis codes necessary to derive an accurate HCC score.
