Our comprehensive approach

Quality Assurance

Focused Audits



Following our reviews, HIA offers a multi-pronged approach to educating the relevant stakeholders in your organization. It all starts with an executive summation conference to discuss overall findings. This is followed by an educational session involving your coding team, CDI specialists and others from your organization you wish to include. These sessions are usually one to two hours in duration and focus heavily on common trends and opportunities. Individual educational needs are met with a coder specific action plan drawn from review findings. 

Medical Coding Audit Platform

Finally, a powerful audit tool for both
your professional fee and acute reviews.

Atom Audit makes managing your organization's audit process simple. The platform supports Acute Inpatient and Outpatient, Professional Fee and Ambulatory Surgery Centers all for one annual fee.
