What are the qualifications of Resolutions coders?
We provide coders that match the casemix of your facility. You can be assured that the coders we send have experience in the cases requiring coding. Our coders are stringently tested using our unique testing protocols. Resolutions has developed a testing protocol based on a study conducted which identified the core skills required for efficient and effective coding. This involves speed and accuracy testing including a coding test and psychological testing.
Why does Resolutions have different pricing to other contract coders?
Facilities have different requirements based on the casemix specialties of each and, therefore, different challenges in coding requirements. Each unique situation is assessed accordingly, and we provide the best coders that match the coding specialty. Whilst coding output is important, the quality of output is the most important aspect of our coding service. Our coders are regularly audited and educated to keep up with coding practices and ensuring your coding is accurate and timely.
