2024 Innovation Conference: Revolutionizing Revenue Cycle: The Synergy of Medical Coding and Future Technology - HBMA Store

Revolutionizing Revenue Cycle: The Synergy of Medical Coding and Future Technology Presented by Kyle Tucker & Michael Brozino

As presented at HBMA's Innovation Conference March 5th-7th, 2024.

Healthcare providers face the challenges of rising operational costs, which threaten financial stability, and under staffing that results in slower claims processing, decreased reimbursements, and increased denials. In 2019, the US reported $28.9B in improper payments, accounting for 7.25% of all payments. Alarmingly, about 23% of claims are denied, lost, or overlooked, with the average cost for a provider to appeal or address a denial standing at $118.

Innovative revenue cycle solutions are needed to address these challenges today.  

In this session, we will delve into the forefront of technology tailored to tackle the challenges of Medical Coding. We will make the distinctions between Computer Assisted Coding and Autonomous Medical Coding, elaborate the unique features and terminology associated with Autonomous Medical Coding, and explore the benefits of integrating an Autonomous Medical Coding platform.

Course participants will be able to:

  1. Navigate the dynamic landscape where Medical Coding and Autonomous Medical Coding platforms converge
  2. Evaluate the benefits and challenges of integrating generative AI into the medical coding processes
  3. Empowered to make informed decisions that drive innovation in the revenue cycle process
