Velocity’s Inpatient Coding Advantage
Choosing Velocity Healthcare for inpatient coding services provides hospitals with a number of advantages.
Flexible staff and resources based on patient volume
Patient volumes fluctuate throughout the year due to factors such as flu season or physician vacations. Newly created programs and hospital acquisitions can also impact your inpatient coding workload. Throughout these fluctuations, Velocity Healthcare’s coding team adjusts to match your coding expense to patient volume. This prevents your hospital from dealing with staff shortages or surpluses and increases your overall efficiency.
Reduce the need for in-house coding staff
It’s difficult for hospitals to find qualified candidates to fulfill their coding needs. Our inpatient coding team is experienced, trained, and regularly updated on the latest inpatient coding guidelines and CMS regulations.
Reduce hospital overhead costs
Velocity Healthcare reduces or eliminates your in-house overhead costs to staff and other departmental requirements. Costs such as salary, benefits, certification training, and hiring searches can add up. We can reduce your hospital’s bottom line costs and increase your revenue cycle efficiency.
