Chicago, IL (PRWEB) December 12, 2011
Care Communications, Inc. (CARE) a national health information consulting and staffing firm, announced today that its total revenue increased by 26 percent in the first three quarters of 2011 when compared with the same period in the previous year.
The utilization of Care Communications’ ICD-10 transition services has been growing rapidly. CARE recently launched an ICD-10 Documentation and Revenue Risk Assessment service as well as coder skills assessments, training and education. These services have been embraced by hospitals and physician practices as they prepare for the October 1, 2013 federally mandated ICD-10 implementation deadline.
CARE’s coding quality improvement and education consulting services focus on improving the thoroughness, accuracy and speed of the medical coding operation. Increasing the efficiency and accuracy of medical coding improves the revenue cycle performance and compliance for healthcare facilities.
“The challenges currently facing healthcare providers, including ICD-10 implementation, are significant and can lead to lost revenue if not managed correctly,” said Hal Walsh, senior vice president of Sales and Marketing at Care Communications. “These transitions are beyond what has taken place in the past 35 years of our service to the healthcare industry.”
