Interim Auditing


Interim Auditing

In today's complex healthcare environment, hospitals have to juggle many important initiatives.  The coding function has a tremendous impact on the financial health of your organization. As a result, the need for a robust audit plan has steadily increased, as well as the need to provide insightful education and training to your coders, CDI staff, and providers. The challenge is that the number of qualified auditors seems to be decreasing, while the need for quality audits is increasing.
