Lack of Expertise
Medical coding is the second step in the payment lifecycle. With 144,000 code sets, medical coding requires speed, accuracy, and expertise. With
industry error rates averaging 5%, that translates to massive losses in revenue. When a code is wrong, it guarantees denial and stops the payment lifecycle.
Infinx finds and extensively trains the highest level of certified medical coding specialists at a fraction of the cost. We partner with you to seamlessly provide certified and trained medical coding talent, allowing you to focus on core operations. Our customers consistently report denial rates that beat industry average performance.
Medical Coding Solutions Include:
Medical Coding requires speed and accuracy. Your practice depends on them to unlock critical revenue. With 144,000 ICD-10 codes, your team needs highly qualified medical coders who can continuously improve coding workflow. Our expert AAPC-certified coders accurately classify each treatment and procedure and verify each medical code based on the patient’s clinical record, allowing you to generate more revenue.
Coding denials significantly harm your practice and revenue. We take the time to double-check denials due to incorrect coding and then assign appropriate codes.
and Gap Analysis
We assess sample charts to determine the accuracy of information for ICD-10 coding. We identify, classify, and measure gap resources to assess gaps in documentation. Our analytics dashboard provides trends in modalities, CPT codes used, and practices involved that lead to gaps in documentation. We also provide detailed reports and consult with physicians to maintain proper clinical documentation.
Our expert coding professionals and auditors can review and correct codes coming from automated coding systems to ensure fast payments and avoid denials.
We conduct quality checks at the time of coding and make corrections before we submit your claims for billing.
We conduct quality checks that track coding submissions and then perform a root-cause analysis to design and implement a preventive action plan tailored to your practice.
On a quarterly basis, we focus on evaluation and management (E&M), CPT, and diagnostics to ensure the overall health and productivity of your coding and billing system.

Coding is complex. With 144,000 codes, ICD-10 increased the number of diagnosis codes five-fold and the number of procedure codes 18-fold. It increased the length and alpha-numeric structure of each code and reorganized the entire coding directory. ICD-10 may be old news, but how it affects your payment lifecycle isn’t.
