Medical Coding and Auditing for Children's Hospitals

Pediatric Hospitals

In the dynamic world of healthcare, pediatric medical coding stands out as a particularly challenging field, fraught with complexities and requiring specialized knowledge. 

Children are not just small adults – they present with their own spectrum of diseases, many of which are rare or nonexistent in adults. Accurately coding these pediatric-specific conditions requires a deep understanding of a wide range of pediatric diseases.

HIAs credentialed coders are up-to-date on all ICD-10 and CPT pediatric coding guidelines. With our expertise, children's hospitals can focus on what matters most: providing top-notch care to their young patients.

What to Consider Before Your Next Coding Audit

A medical coding audit is a process that includes internal or external reviews of medical coding and billing accuracy, procedures or policies in place, and any other component that affects the medical record documentation. Medical coding audits are a preventative measure to catch potential compliance errors that could result in liabilities or investigations. These compliance related issues can also impact your bottom line, your organization’s reputation, and most importantly, the level of care you deliver to your patients.
