Shape Your Coding Team’s Future with Coder Mentoring

Coder mentoring is a custom service specifically tailored to each organization’s coders. With live mentoring and coaching sessions, coding teams receive concurrent feedback from experienced auditors and coding consultants. Mentors periodically conduct one-on-one coaching sessions; these provide individual encounter forms to assess each coder’s progress, offering recommendations for additional mentoring on specific encounter types. Mentoring sessions can also be done in a group setting; it is up to the organization to decide what works best for their team.

The coder mentoring program is an excellent resource for new-hire coders. It’s also suitable for coders who need additional guidance to increase their quality and efficiency. Mentoring programs empower coders through real-time feedback and dedicated question queues. In these queues, coders can ask for advice about issues they encounter in their day-to-day operations.

In our experience as HIM coding and auditing consultants, we’ve seen firsthand the positive impact that a coder mentoring program can have on coder accuracy and quality. *During our 24-month Client Coder Mentoring Program Case Study, coders increased their MS-DRG coding accuracy by 13% for an overall 96.4% accuracy rate. The program also identified overcoding and undercoding issues that affected overall coding quality. This resulted in in $60,000 identified in undercoded encounters per quarter and $55,000 in overcoded visits per quarter.

Here’s how our medical coding mentoring program benefits you:

  • Increased Revenue: Minimize lost reimbursements due to coding errors and maximize your rightful collections.
  • Reduced Costs: Streamline your coding processes and eliminate the need for costly rework.
  • Improved Efficiency: Empower your coders to work faster and more confidently.
  • Enhanced Compliance: Mitigate the risk of audits and penalties with accurate, compliant coding practices.
  • Boosted Staff Morale: Provide your coders with the support and resources they need to excel.

Coding Education & Frequent Audits Greatly Impact Coding Accuracy

Flexible coding training played a vital role in the success of the Client Coder Mentoring Program. Our team designed the YES HIM Education Catalog to offer specialized training for busy HIM professionals. The catalog features flexible formats, such as on-demand courses, live webinars and Q&A sessions, and blended formats.

Conducting focused or periodic coding audits of the coding team ensure coders are meeting coding accuracy standards. These audits also save a substantial amount of work, time, and money in the long run. Our auditing clients also receive detailed, periodic reports that track accuracy, performance, and trends in results.
