Since 1981 LexiCode has provided quality HIM coding and consulting services to healthcare providers and payers nationwide. Our consultants work to enhance operations in every type and size of the healthcare provider environment, including hospitals, physician groups, ancillary services, emergency departments and outpatient surgical facilities. Today LexiCode, remains an industry leader in coding compliance solutions.
LexiCode clients benefit from our unique understanding of coding that goes back to the development of the DRG payment methodology. With the adoption of the MS-DRG methodology and implementation of the RAC program, comprehensive and accurate coding is critical for your facility. Coding is a vital part of evaluating patient care costs, monitoring patient severity and designing clinical pathways. You simply can't afford to have anything less than the most timely and accurate coding available.
To ensure accuracy, revenue accountability and to endure those inevitable bottlenecks that come with holidays, vacations and other conflicts, more health care providers turn to LexiCode for coding expertise. We maintain a staff of thoroughly trained and credentialed coding professionals ready to assist your coding department through a temporary crunch, consult in problem areas, conduct coding audits or assume complete management of your coding operation.
Our professionals are credentialed coding consultants (RHIA, RHIT, CCS, CCS–P, CPC) with experience coding in all patient care settings. Each of our consultants has completed our comprehensive Coder Development Program, which provides a thorough study of all applicable guidelines, regulations, processes and clinical data. LexiCode also provides our consultants with ongoing training opportunities to ensure our staff is abreast of the ever–changing industry.
