Approach

Our unique, collaborative approach goes beyond traditional Clinical Documentation Improvement (CDI) models. Our experienced CDI and Coding staff work alongside our clients and their existing staff providing point of service reviews and individualizing the CDI program based on the existing talent within the organization. Utilizing proprietary analytics, we are able to offer peer-to-peer comparisons that allow us to design organization-specific programs.

Our specialty based physician-to-physician education and training model is designed to ensure providers are confident with their documentation skills and to ensure their records accurately reflect the clinical acuity of their patients.

Our highly trained coders incorporate second- and third-level reviews to ensure compliance with official coding guidelines and regulatory requirements.

Process

Our process differs from the traditional healthcare revenue cycle through the use of physician review, provider education, business Intelligence, and predictive analytics throughout the process. As a result of our physician reviewers and our approach, we are able to educate the support services. These support services are UM, CDI and Coding.

Holistic Approach

ACCDS takes a holistic approach in the clinical revenue integrity process and educates as a whole program rather than taking a siloed or individual service line approach.

Compliance & Consistency

Compliance is at the heart of the ACCDS model. ACCDS takes care while consulting and educating clinical criteria for compliance and consistency and thoroughly reviews medical necessity and appropriate level of care assignment.

Microsegmentation

ACCDS micro-segments the particular cases needing specialized physician reviews. This process applies to difficult and high-severity cases prior to coding in the form of a pre-coded and pre-bill review.

Challenge Identification

ACCDS captures data and uses its proprietary business intelligence tools and clinically-oriented analytics to identify challenges by hospital, discipline and DRG categories.

Documentation Improvement

ACCDS consults and educates its clients' Clinical Documentation Improvement personnel to ensure compliant, accurate and timely capture of care provided.

Provider & Staff Education

ACCDS identifies cases that are typically targeted for third party reviews and provides individualized provider and support staff education according to all clinical, federal and local guidelines.

Predictive Analysis

ACCDS uses all of the captured information and can predict patterns and develop profiles of physician documentation, clinical department service, CDI team members, as well as coders and auditors.
