Cost-effective data quality and revenue cycle support designed to meet the unique requirements of today’s healthcare payment models and revenue cycle environment
STAMFORD, CT, May 21, 2019 — EXTEND Resources, a leading operational performance improvement solutions company, today announced the launch of its line of healthcare revenue cycle services. EXTEND’s Clinical Documentation Improvement (CDI) and Medical Coding services are designed to enable healthcare organizations—and the vendors who serve them—enhance clinical documentation quality and facilitate accurate, specific and timely medical coding, resulting in fewer denials and appropriate reimbursement.
“The ever-strengthening focus on quality care delivery— combined with value-based payment models and a shortage of medical coders and CDI professionals in the U.S.—has created tremendous demand for both talented resources and enabling technologies,” said Howard Hoffmann, CEO of EXTEND Resources. “We are excited to fulfill those resource needs with a talented team who bring clinical data quality expertise along with exceptional coding and revenue cycle knowledge to deliver outstanding results for clients.”
Essential to inpatient and outpatient facilities, as well as large physician practices and other ambulatory care settings, EXTEND’s coding and CDI services support the unique requirements of today’s payment models and revenue cycle environment:
EXTEND Excellence, a three-level quality assurance program, targets superior performance and is designed to enable team members to continuously meet and exceed 95% accuracy.
Availability & Timely Delivery
With expert resources both in the U.S. and across the globe, EXTEND clients benefit from access to a dedicated team that help them meet CDI and coding requirements and time constraints in every care setting—including outpatient CDI—while benefitting from short turnaround times that only follow-the-sun services can offer.
Access to a Philippines-based pool of experienced CDI specialists and inpatient, outpatient, and specialty care coders—including credentialed professionals, RNs, and other clinicians with significant clinical knowledge—offers high-quality results at measurable cost savings.
Periodic project, quality, and productivity reporting, along with monthly touchpoints, demonstrate performance and identify opportunities to expand results into other areas of HIM.
Security & Privacy
Information security is a core competency at EXTEND. Clients benefit from our holistic information security program, which was developed based on our proven success in helping other organizations strengthen their security posture and achieve ISO certification. EXTEND is ISO 27001 certified for information security and our team is trained in HIPAA, HITECH, and ISO 27001 compliance.
With extensive experience in healthcare information management, technology, analytics, and financial processes, EXTEND’s leadership team brings valuable skills and talent to healthcare organizations and vendors in an environment where revenue integrity is critical.
