Medical Coding Radiology Backlog Case Study
The Medical Coding Radiology Backlog case study presents standardized procedures in the event of staffing shortages in order to prevent an inflated coding backlog. Before our team intervened, the client struggled with a coding backlog of over 3,500 encounters.
After spending 15 months coding the Outpatient Radiology Center encounters in the client's backlog, we found the backlog had only 500 encounters left daily, effectively meeting the client’s target goal of less than 1,000 encounters. Our YES Team developed and implemented internal documentation and coding processes to successfully reduce the client’s backlog by 86 percent.
