Is your Health Information Management (HIM) department accountable to their new roles in advanced EHR utilization while simultaneously bridging the gap to the continuum of care?
A siloed HIM department results in delayed cash, increased denials, rework, and loss of revenue. The advent of the EHR has changed the role of Health Information Management. And, in most organizations, HIM has not caught up to the changing tides.
HIM, like care management, serves as a secondary clinical bridge for the revenue cycle especially when considering the quality and depth of physician documentation and clinical documentation improvement (CDI) programs to support defensible and transparent patient care. In addition, as one of the pillars of the patient-centric revenue cycle, HIM plays a central role in coding, EHR and ELR (legal record) management, denials management, appeals, DNFB management, and compliance. With the pace of accelerating regulatory changes, thoughtful HIM leaders are reengineering work processes, improving automation, and championing the patient-centric revenue cycle not only in their own departments but across the clinical continuum of care.
If your organization’s HIM professionals fail to adapt to these changes, you can limit the availability of important clinical information, increase audit risks, cause coding backlogs, and ultimately reduce reimbursement.
