Coding Audit

Peak’s coding audits include reviewing inpatient and/or outpatient charts, invoices, remittance advices, and other supporting appropriate to a given patient for services rendered by referring, attending, or consulting physicians and affiliated healthcare staff.  Review is given to all areas of patient charts including history of present illness; past, family, and social history; physical examination; single systems examination; multi-system examination; specialty field examination; diagnosis; treatment; and billing-related documentation and coding.  Changes to coding or coding specialty are recommended as well as notations on billing discrepancies (such as data entry error, software error, editing problems in the system like overwrites, unexplained discrepancies, and insufficient documentation. Clarification is sought from appropriate organizational healthcare and administrative staff to correct or complete records, and changes or recommendations for changes are made by Peak Government Services staff.  Unresolved audit results are addressed, along with general recommendations, in a final billing and coding report for review by the organization’s governance. An exit interview is conducted between (at a minimum) the Peak's project manager and organizational governance or their appointee(s).  The exit summary may also include coding staff, HIM management staff, case managers, and/or administrative officials such as the CFO.  The audit findings are addressed during the summary and may include citation reasoning, coding references, patterns in coding, and any additional educational discourse on coding issues in general.

Compliance Review

Peak Government Services conducts an objective compliance effectiveness review to determine whether a healthcare organization has a compliance plan and program that meet state and federal laws, regulations, and mandates.  In addition, Peak reviews pertinent documentation and interviews staff, including leadership and governance, to ensure that all applicable laws, regulations, and mandates are, in actuality, abided and encouraged.  This includes those stipulated by Medicare, Medicaid, and Office of the Inspector General.  Peak focuses its objective compliance effectiveness reviews in the following areas (see items 1 through 11 below).  The review serves to gather data and information on the daily operations of a given healthcare organization.  By conducting these reviews, Peak Government Services determines whether organizations consistently meet or exceed best practice standards set forth in state and federal laws, regulations, and mandates.  Peak provides corporate governance with a summary report noting any deficiencies or variances that would hinder full compliance.
