Upon reviewing my initial post, I would add several essential auditing and monitoring elements of healthcare coding compliance. Notably, I would add the concept that conducting external audit allows vendors to provide highly experienced auditors, bringing outside ideas, perception, and solutions to the facilityâ€™s objective examination and evaluation. I did realise that when health facilities hire external auditors, the external auditor will conduct baseline audits, sampling various services to measure the coding compliance for each provider and coder (Alonso et al., 2020).
How advancements in technology and AI have impacted coding departments
Stanfill and Marc
(2019) provided several ways in which the growing technology in healthcare has
impacted coding. Notably, the growing utilisation of artificial intelligence
(AI) has introduced labour-intensive and cost-effective technologies in
healthcare coding. Additionally, AI technology has accelerated the volume of
healthcare data, leading to an information boom within the industry.
